SUICIDE SQUAD 2 Could End Up Being Directed by Mel Gibson
Warner Bros. is looking to hire Mel Gibson to direct Suicide Squad 2, and he's considering it! That's right, the man who brought us Braveheart and Hacksaw Ridge could end up developing the sequel to Suicide Squad, and it would be awesome if that's how this all plays out.
The studio has yet to officially offer him the gig, but I think Gibson would do some crazy spectacular things with Suicide Squad. One thing that Gibson has always done well is tell a great story. The guy has never half-assed any of the films he's directed, and if he did Suicide Squad 2, he would give us a movie masterpiece.
According to THR, "Gibson is familiarizing himself with the material. But the studio is not being passive and it also looking at other directors, Daniel Espinosa among them." Espinosa has brought us film such as Safe House, Child 44, and the upcoming sci-fi thriller Life. Personally, I'd like to see Gibson jump on board.
David Ayer directed the first film, and he's currently working on the Gotham City Sirens spinoff movie that will focus on Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman. He's obviously got his hands full, and Warner Bros. is looking for someone to start developing Suicide Squad 2 sometime in the near future.
Suicide Squad wasn't the best film in the world, but it was a blast to watch! With a talented director and storyteller like Gibson on board, the sequel could be an all-around great film. I'd be curious to see how he would move the story forward with these insane villainous characters.
What do you think about the possibility of Gibson directing Suicide Squad 2?
