The Suicide Squad still hasn’t managed to recoup its $185 million budget at the box office, but that hasn’t stopped James Gunn from continuing to talk up his future with Warner Bros. and DC Films. Obviously, the writer and director is back at Marvel for the time being as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 gears up to head into production, but HBO Max spinoff series Peacemaker is only three months away.
The second outing for Task Force X may have flopped in theaters, but it’s performed admirably on HBO Max, and both Gunn and the studio appear open to working together again in the future. Once Vol. 3 ends his association with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s no reason why we won’t be hearing constant rumors revolving around a third Suicide Squad.
