WB Wants Another DC Movie to Begin Filming This Year
With the recent creative changes behind the scenes of The Batman, Ben Affleck’s solo film probably won’t begin filming until 2018, which leaves a bit of a gap in Warner Bros.’ superhero schedule. Earlier this week, the studio pushed Aquaman back two months, pitting it against Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie in December 2018 — and with nothing else on the docket for the rest of the year, that leaves a sizable gap on the DC schedule.
‘Legend of Tarzan’ Scribe Will Pen ‘Suicide Squad 2’ Script
While it doesn’t look like Mel Gibson will direct Suicide Squad 2 since we haven’t heard anything from him in a while (although who really knows these days), the movie does now have a screenwriter. Warner Bros. is kicking off production on the movie with Adam Cozad, who wrote 2016’s The Legend of Tarzan for the studio and has officially signed on to the Suicide Squad sequel.
Mel Gibson Might Direct the ‘Suicide Squad’ Sequel
The DC Extended Universe may have lost Ben Affleck as a director (and maybe as a star too), but Warner Bros. is looking to gain another big name for its roster. The studio is currently courting Mel Gibson to helm the Suicide Squad sequel, which is definitely not a sentence anyone expected to write today.
