    This might actually get me interested in the sequel.

    I would be all over this, but I sincerely doubt it happens.

    He's not out of favour though. Hes' been welcomed back to Hollywood with open arms.

    He just got nominated again for an Oscar for Best Director (Hacksaw Ridge) and recently signed up for a Hollywood studio movie again with Paramount.

    I guess his critical acclaimed film got him back in studios good graces.

    Jonathan Levine should be the flash director.

    Gibson would be a huge get and go a long way in restoring faith in the DCEU. He has a reputation for being hands-on, and his recent comments against the genre also show he's not going to lay down and make a standard blockbuster for the fame or money. Guy is a true artist.

    I'm doubtful it goes through, but I'd applaud all parties for making it happen. We might finally get that gritty Suicide Squad we initially thought Ayer would easily provide.

    Having Mel in the chair would get me interested even though he's probably a piece of ***** as human being.

    Mel's got six weeks to write the film then they shoot.

    Probably? :loco: Is there really any doubt?

    Gibson isn't doing this.

    “It’s a piece of ****,” the 60-year-old director told Deadline at the Venice Film Festival. “I’m not interested in the stuff. Do you know what the difference between real superheroes and comic-book superheroes is? Real superheroes didn’t wear spandex. So I don’t know. Spandex must cost a lot.”

    You don't go from that to directing a sequel to one of the most hated superhero films of all time.

    id be surprised if Gibson did this based on his comments. Also, its starting to seem like WB wants negative PR.

    One of the most hated? Suicide Squad made over $700 million.

    One of the most critically panned? Sure. But it's plain enough that the GA enjoyed it.

    Gibson crapped on CBMs anyhow, why would he want to do SS2?

    Because Suicide Squad is a subversion of the superhero genre.

    I feel like the optics of this troubled f***er making a sequel to such a contested CBM are pretty awful.

    Was it really though? I mean aside from how it was marketed.

    Well this is an interesting development! I actually hope he ends up directing and I'm curious as to which characters he'd use.

    No, but it f***ing should've been.
