James Gunn has started filming a new version of the Suicide Squad which will be released on August 6, 2021. This movie is not a sequel to the 2016 movie. The new film will be called ‘The Suicide Squad’ to differentiate it from 2016’s ‘Suicide Squad’.

The upcoming movie is being described as a reboot. Some of the popular characters will return for the new movie. These include Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Amanda Waller (Violas Davis), Boomerang (Jai Courtney) and Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman). Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Jared Leto’s Joker made quite the impression in the 2016 Suicide Squad.
