Suicide Squad 2 Still Lacks A Director As DC's Top Choice Passes

GameSpot has the story.

It might not have been a critical success, but Suicide Squad was still one of 2016's biggest box office hits, and the sequel was confirmed by DC at San Diego Comic-Con last month. However, the movie currently lacks a director, and it has now been reported that the studio's top choice has withdrawn from the project.

According to Deadline, Jaume Collet-Serra will no longer direct Suicide Squad 2. Although Collet-Serra was never officially announced by the studio, he was reportedly its top choice to take over from David Ayer, who helmed the first movie. Collet-Serra, who directed last years hit shark thriller The Shallows, will instead helm the action comedy Jungle Cruise, with star Dwayne Johnson.

Prior to Collet-Serra, it was reported that Mel Gibson was in consideration to direct Suicide Squad 2. Actor Joel Kinnaman, who played Rick Flag in the supervillain team-up, previously said the movie could start shooting in 2018.

They need a much clearer creative vision for SS2 to work. Too many characters, too many threads to pull. Ensemble films are hard to pull off. SS1 was a mess.

I think they could pick a lot worse than Mel Gibson but based on how awards season went and how he was dismissed for Hacksaw Ridge it's clear hollywood hasn't forgiven him yet.

On the other hand Gibson tends to like to focus on noble figures. I'm not sure that works for these characters.

Sam Raimi might do OK but I find it hard to forgive him for Spiderman 3. Michael Mann might be able to fill the gap. He's good with bloody, morally ambiguous plots and being surrounded by star power.

Sounds like the script to 'Jungle Cruise' was just to good for this Serra guy to pass up.

Damn... these comic book movies are shit.

I can't imagine any well-known director would want to be associated with this franchise. SS2 would need to be a total homerun for it to work, because the first one was all around terrible.

At least Margot Robbie is very, very easy on the eyes.

I didn't mind the first film as I'd hardly expect a deep and heavy film. It featured explosions, guns, hot chick(s) and that's about it. Anything else might be wasted on the intended audience. I'd hardly call it terrible. Anything with Jason Sorbo could be called terrible.
