    I really don't know about this.

    I thought the first film was okay, but it tried too hard to be DC's counterpart to Guardians of the Galaxy. If they make it more film-noirish and toned down the color and jokes it may have a chance.

    If Ayer is gone and they actually make Croc something other than a stereotype I might be interested. If not I'll pass. One of those movies was more than enough.

    Suicide Squad 2... Gotham City Sirens... Deadshot... man, they're really just throwing shit at a wall to see what might stick at this point. I don't think we've seen a studio THIS clueless with what to do with their comic book properties or alleged cinematic "universe" than what WB/DC keep showcasing.

    Yeah, I have to agree.

    It all just seems so wrong-headed, to turn "Suicide Squad" into it's own mini-franchise, especially when where are soooo many other DC characters that WB could begin pushing...

    Suicide Squad made almost as much money in the US as their big guns Batman vs Superman. For a bunch of nobodies, that's pretty good.

    Yes, but how many of the same people who spent money on the first movie only to determine it was total shit will spend money again on a sequel if they hated the first one? Probably not too many... and that's a very valid risk assessment that all studios have to make when it comes to these kinds of "yeah we made a bunch of money, but nobody actually liked it once they paid and saw it" movies that may get sequels. That, and when it comes to DC, people are also quickly realizing that different and arguably "better" versions of these movies are being saved for home release vs. what's getting put into the theaters. That could really backfire on them if they do it yet again with, say, Wonder Woman.

    I was thinking bout buying the blu ray for SS while in Target today. But $24.99 for a movie I thought was ......"subpar", no thanks. Maybe when it's on sale. BvS Ultimate Edition is only 12.99 right now.

    Seems like a lot of focus on villains. I liked SS but I do understand most of the complaints people had. Then again not sure what they were expecting especially if they ever read any of the Suicide Squad comics in the last 5 years.

    SS2 makes sense. I don't think they should do a Sirens movie until they introduce at least Catwoman or Ivy in another movie first. I wouldn't bother with a Deadshot movie. SS was basically a Deadshot movie. They need to focus on building up their heroes. DC is so much more than Batman and Superman.

    If true, it would be interesting to see if they would actually let Mel really direct this, or if they micro-manage him to the point of driving him off the project.

    All of the other garbage aside, he is a great director. Braveheart is still one of my favorite movies of all time.

    Nope, won't happen. Just like the Ridley Scott rumor floating around last week about whatever other DC movie, this is brutally below Gibson. Unless WB have opened a vault and are literally throwing money at directors that actually have talent, they'll never get 'em.

    Another Suicide Squad movie I understand. My family absolutely loved it. (I thought it was ok)

    But a Deadshot movie is going to have even less appeal than the idea of a Hawkeye standalone movie.

    Let's say they get Mel Gibson to direct it. That immediately piques my interest far more. Keep in mind, he shat all over Batman v. Superman not too long ago, so that must mean that there is something there for him, or that WB is the only studio that would give him such a large budget again. Even so, it's kinda hard to imagine given the kind of serious tone Mel Gibson usually goes for. I'd be interested in seeing it. Say what you will about Gibson's personal life (I can't defend some of his actions), but the man is a gifted director who showed that he's still got it with Hacksaw Ridge.

    Mel Gibson would make the gritty and more grounded film Ayer wanted to make, but much better. I want this to happen

    Also, I don't think Gibson would accept the offer if he knew he wasn't getting full control of the project. So if he was hired, I wouldn't worry.
