What is the release date of The Suicide Squad movie?
A few months before the release of the film Suicide Squad (2016) directed by David Ayer, Warner Pictures announces the construction of a sequel with originally the same director behind the camera and Will Smith as Deadshot. For reasons of different creatives for the first and incompatibility of planning for the second, they leave the project, and are replaced by the director James Gunn as well as Idris Elba following a delicate transfer window. The filming of the feature film begins at the end of September 2019 in the Pinewood Atlanta Studios located in the State of Georgia in the United States before traveling to Panama. On March 1, 2020, filming ends. Global pandemic forces, Warner Bros. patiently waits for an ideal exit window. The film The Suicide Squad (2021) will finally land in theaters on July 28, 2021, but also on HBO Max in the countries concerned.
Is The Suicide Squad a sequel, reboot or remake of Suicide Squad? Is he part of the DC Extended Universe?
The Suicide Squad (2021) is neither a remake of Suicide Squad (2016), nor a reboot of the franchise. It is qualified by the main stakeholders as standalone taking as a framework the same universe as that of its predecessor. James Gunn’s film is therefore an integral part of the DC Extended Universe (or DCEU), that is to say the cinematographic universe of DC Comics, but does not require at any time to have previously seen the one directed by David Ayer. The Suicide Squad is precisely the tenth feature film of the DCEU after Man of Steel (2013), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Suicide Squad (2016), Wonder Woman (2017), Justice League (2017) , Aquaman (2018), Shazam! (2019), Birds of Prey (2020) and Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) … if we knowingly put aside the Zack Snyder’s Cut (2021). A list to which will be added in the coming months The Flash (2022), Aquaman 2 (2022), Black Adam (2022) and Shazam! Fury of the Gods (2023).
What is the script for The Suicide Squad?
The Suicide Squad begins at the Belle Reve penitentiary. This prison, which has the highest death rate in the United States of America, is where the nation’s worst criminals and supervillains are held. In the hope of seeing the light of day again, some agree to join Task Force X under the leadership of Amanda Waller to carry out various missions rightly considered suicidal. The Suicide Squad led by Rick Flag is this time parachuted on the island of Corto Maltese with the aim of destroying the Starfish project, an experience that threatens nothing less than our beautiful blue planet.
What is the cast? Who are the villains enlisted in the Suicide Squad?
The Suicide Squad (2021) belonging to the same universe as Suicide Squad (2016), it is not surprising to find some key characters and therefore the actors who play them. Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney and Viola Davis thus resume their respective roles, namely Harley quinn, Rick flag, Captain boomerang and Amanda waller. They are joined for this mission orchestrated by James Gunn in person by Sylvester Stallone who lends his voice to King shark, Alice Braga (Sol Soria), Idris Elba (Bloodsport), Michael Rooker (Learned), Nathan Fillion (TDK), John Cena (Peacemaker), Pete Davidson (Blackguard), Freddie Stroma (Adrian Chase aka Vigilante), David Dastmalchian (Polka-Dot Man), Sean Gunn (Weasel), Pete Capaldi (Thinker), Flula Borg (Javelin), Storm Reid (Tyla), Mayling Ng (Mongal) and Daniela Melchior (Ratcatcher II) to recite nobody else but them. We are therefore in the presence of a massive cast made up of twenty actors for some known to the general public, a roster of characters doomed to die … Suicide Squad obliges.

Who is directing and scripting The Suicide Squad?
Following the departure of David Ayer of the Suicide Squad 2 project, the names of Jaume Collet-Serra and of David S. Goyer are evoked without this succeeding for various and varied reasons. Gavin O’Connor is finally committed to the project before leaving it in turn. The dismissal of James Gunn, who was supposed to star Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, by The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios, is restarting production of a sequel for Suicide Squad (2016). The American director is then approached by Warner Bros, and decides to work on The Suicide Squad (2021).
The Suicide Squad movie is unsurprisingly directed by James gunn, a regular of magnificent losers with a recognizable style. Schoolboy humor, graphic violence and characters as touching as they are irritating, the works imagined by the American director, from Super (2011) to the segment of My Movie Project (2013) via Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 , James Gunn sweat with all their being. The same goes for The Suicide Squad which is also scripted by James Gunn in collaboration with the author of the comic books Suicide Squad… John ostrander. The story necessarily draws from the original material, the 9th Art, but wants to be new, to understand here that it is not a simple adaptation of a pre-existing narrative arc.
Who is working on the movie The Suicide Squad?
The director inevitably permeates his film, but the teams that revolve around the project are not left out, and shape on their own scale a work that is by nature collective. The photography of the feature film The Suicide Squad (2021) is entrusted to Henry braham, a technician who has proven himself on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), Tarzan (2016) and Flyboys (2006). As for the editing, it is up to the duo Fred raskin (Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, Guardians of the Galaxy, Django Unchained) and Christian Wagner (True Romance, Volte / face), two regulars in genre films intended for the general public.
At the soundtrack, we find John murphy, a musician who has worked as a composer in the past on Sunshine (2007), 28 Days Later (2002) and Arnaques, Crimes et Botany (1998). The costumes are the brainchild of Judianna Makovsky to whom we owe the outfits of Avengers: Endgame (2019), Hunger Games (2012), but also Harry Potter and the sorcerer’s stone (2001). Last but not least, the waterfalls are coordinated by Tim wong and Karl Van Moorsel for everything related to vehicle chases. The two stuntmen previously collaborated on George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) and Mel Gibson’s You Shall Not Kill (2016), blockbuster movies rightly recognized for their high-end action scenes.
The Suicide Squad is broadcast on French soil from July 28, 2021 in the cinema, and exclusively in the cinema. Faced with such a summer blockbuster, the Warner Pictures film should be massively screened in the cinemas of the CGR, Pathé Gaumont, MK2 and UGC channels as well as in certain independent cinemas. In the US and other countries where the HBO Max service is available, The Suicide Squad will be simultaneously available in theaters and on Warner’s SVOD platform. In France, we will have to wait a year to enjoy The Suicide Squad on HBO Max, ie at the end of July 2022… despite the arrival in our regions of the said service by the end of 2021. Indeed, the media timeline has just been shaken up. From July 1, 2021, the waiting period between the cinema release of a film and its potential presence on a SVOD platform goes from 1 to 3 years in our territory depending on certain conditions.
