Suicide Squad 2 is a film that’s been rumored to hit ever since that first one took the box office by storm last year. More recently, it was confirmed to be in development, with The Accountant’s Gavin O’Connor, but no production date would get confirmed.

Over the course of the past year, there have been some dates that hit for next year, including March 2018. However, Omega Underground is now reporting that the film is expected to begin principal photography in October 2018. They go on to point out that this gives actor Will Smith plenty of time to work on the Ang Lee sci-fi flick Gemini Man.

Additionally, actress Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn, had mentioned she would be filming as the character in 2018. However, seeing as there are several projects in development that would feature Harley Quinn, it was unknown which one of them it would be. With Suicide Squad looking to begin production late next year, it would seem that this is likely to be Robbie’s next appearance as Harley.

This means that while Justice League was less than well received, the studio’s 2018 production date is jam-packed with Shazam! beginning in February, Wonder Woman in June, and now Suicide Squad 2 in October.

    Did they learn nothing??
    BvS made a lot of funny, but wasn’t that great. JL suffered immensely for that!

    Suicide Squad again, made a lot of money, but was absolutely AWFUL! How do they expect a straight sequel to that to be successful??

    Wow… shooting starts in October… probably for a 2019 release… will people still remember how bad the first one was? well… Hope they pull a Terminator 2… a Sequel that is way better than the first and is a Legendary Movie… Redefining Action Movies of the time…
