The movie The Suicide Squad is really Suicide Squad 2. It is a direct sequel to the 2016 movie Suicide Squad.
James Gunn, who was fired from Guardians of the Galaxy 3, for posting vile Tweets, (and then rehired, because cash is king at Disney), wrote and directed Suicide Squad 2.
Idris Elba, Storm Reid, John Cena and David Dastmalchian star alongside returnees Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney and Viola Davis.
The Suicide Squad in theaters AND on HBO Max August 6, 2021.
