Read on and see what new road blocks are facing Suicide Squad 2…
The perfect casting, on screen chemistry is key and a director and writer who love DC comics and understands the origins of all characters involved.
Which leads us to this. Suicide Squad 2 seems to have landed a screenwriter, but he is a lackluster choice. Warner Bros is in negotiations with The Legend of Tarzan writer David Cozad, but his last film was NOT a good example. The Legend of Tarzan was a lacked everything except for the apes. The story was a complete “misjudged mess” and we could wait for the credits to role. It was like someone sticking needles slowly into our eye-sockets and FORCING us to watch.
Basically, it was painful all the way around. We just don’t want to see another disaster like Marvel’s Fantastic 4 which RUINED everything about the franchise. The director was clueless, the story was whack and we were shocked that the studio supported such a dud!
It was an EPIC FAIL for Marvel’s Fantastic 4, but that is what happens when you don’t consult Stan Lee’s most precious project.
The Hollywood Reporter reports:
Warner Bros. is still in talks with Cozad, who co-wrote action reboot Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, starring Chris Pine. He also worked on Kristen Stewart’s upcoming thriller Underwater. Though, Cozad is known for trafficking in the action and comic book realms.
Maybe he is the right guy to continue the story lines for Suicide Squad 2 telling the story of villains as Deadshot, Harley Quinn, the Joker, Captain Boomerang and Killer Croc, who are forced into the service of the government in exchange for lighter sentences.
But is that enough? Does he know the material? Is he familiar with the DCEU? The DC Extended Universe NEEDS to start making better choices like their recent decision to pull Ben Affleck out of the directors seat for Batman. Too bad they don’t pull him out of playing the bat, but he’s already established himself as Bruce Wayne. A dark bitter, angry, emotionless version that fails to impress most all DC fans worldwide.
But that is NOT the only road block, Suicide Squad 2 has yet to land a director. No Mel Gibson didn’t say yes to the project, yet.
Warner Bros is also said to be approaching several directors for Suicide Squad 2, but no director has been confirmed with the studio keen to sort out the story before making a final decision.
Last month, it was reported that Mel Gibson could potentially direct the sequel, with some fans not at all happy with the possibility.
