At this point, there seems to be no question that Suicide Squad 2 is happening. All signs point to production happening later this year, and that development is coming along smoothly. But what will the film actually be about, is the big question. After all, as fun as the first one was, it was majorly lacking in the villains and, you know, plot department.

With that in mind, writer-director Gavin O’Connor will need to up his gain in order to gain back the trust of slighted viewers. What premise can he create that would truly be considered inspired?

Well, we’re not sure how much audiences will take to it, but according to a report from TheWrap, the sequel will (as of right now) follow our anti-heroes tracking down a weapon of mass destruction. Those who have been keeping track of everything know that Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam was rumored to have an appearance in this film. Well, according to this report, he is the weapon of mass destruction they’ll be searching for.

So this sounds pretty cool, but I’m honestly skeptical. One of the big problems with the first Suicide Squad was that it basically had a bunch of bad guys with no abilities taking on superhuman threats. Why up the stakes with the ultimate bad guy in Black Adam? What the hell can these normies do against him?

In my opinion, it would have been better to pull back the stakes and focus on someone like The Joker — or another non-super-powered villain. That being said, I do like Gavin O’Connor, and would like to think he knows what he’s doing.

What do you think of Black Adam being the big bad of Suicide Squad 2? Let us know your thoughts down below!
