Celebrated comic book movie director James Gunn has offered an update on fans asking about the plans for a sequel of his 2021 DC film, The Suicide Squad.
Starring a rag-tag group of villains from the world of DC, The Suicide Squad was Gunn’s first foray into the universe, after working on several Marvel projects as part of the MCU. The film released during the pandemic, and it garnered positive reviews from fans and critics following its release in theatres and HBO Max.
Since then, Gunn has expanded the Suicide Squad universe with a HBO Max TV series based around Peacemaker, who was played to perfection by John Cena. Moreover, there has also been some rumblings about Idris Elba making his return to play Bloodsport in a series revolving around the character.
I have some other stuff to do first.

While fans are excited about Gunn’s plans for expansion, many of them are wondering whether a sequel for The Suicide Squad was in the cards. In a query asked by a fan on Twitter, the director replied by stating that he would return for a sequel, once he’s done working on other projects.
At the moment, Gunn is putting the final touches on his various Guardians of the Galaxy projects, which includes the upcoming Holiday Special and the threequel. Along with that, the 56-year-old has also confirmed that he would begin working on Season 2 of the Peacemaker series once he’s done with his MCU projects.
With Gunn being busy with Peacemaker and Guardians of the Galaxy, it seems like the director won’t be making any other Suicide Squad films anytime soon.
