‘Suicide Squad 2’ Production Delayed Due to Will Smith’s Schedule
Suicide Squad definitely had some “ehhh” moments but one of the best parts about the movie was Will Smith’s portrayal of Deadshot. It’s good to hear that he’ll be reprising his role in the film’s sequel and the movie is set to go into production next Fall!
Warner Bros. had a lot to unveil at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con with production updates for the likes of: Justice League: Dark, Shazam!, The Flash, Aquaman, & Suicide Squad 2. Now, due to Will Smith’s role as Genie in Guy Ritchie’s live action Aladdin, the movie will now go into production next year according to Variety’s Justin Kroll. Check out Justin’s tweet below.
So hearing at the earliest, SUICIDE SQUAD 2 won't go in to production until fall 2018 because of Smith's schedule with ALADDIN and GEMINI
