Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros and DC have found their white whale… I mean, a director for their Suicide Squad 2. Gavin O’Connor has been set to direct the bad guys fighting bad guys sequel that is primed to lure back Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, and the rest of the gang. O’Connor most recently directed The Accountant for the studio and was working on a sequel, but presumably, Squad will be next up on his dance card.
The studio has been diversifying its DC universe of late, setting The Hangover director Todd Phillips to direct standalone spin-off The Joker, and then tapping John Requa and Glenn Ficarra for a separate spinoff for Leto’s Joker and Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
What do you guys think? Is O’Connor a good choice? Let us know your thoughts below, or on our Facebook page!
