Suicide Squad 2 isn’t Suicide Squad 2—it’s a reboot

With James Gunn reclaiming his seat at Marvel’s table, there was some question as to whether he would stick with his other venture into a superhero group of alternately attractive and grotesque criminal outcasts, Suicide Squad 2.

Not only is Gunn still set to write and direct the new Suicide Squad, he’s apparently developing it as a complete relaunch of the still-nascent franchise.

“[W]e don’t call it Suicide Squad 2, ‘cause it’s a total reboot, so it’s The Suicide Squad,” Safran explained. To which the world replied, “So that’s it, huh? It’s some kinda The Suicide Squad?

Apparently.
