Warner developing ‘Suicide Squad’ film with ‘Fury’ director David Ayer

Warner Bros is reportedly moving ahead with a Suicide Squad film and approached director David Ayer about the film. The comic book follows several villains who are sent on impossible missions which should result in their death.

Ayers (Fury, End of Watch) would direct the film which would likely include two of the mainstrays Captain Boomerang and Deathshot.

UPDATE: The film appears to be slated for a 2016 release

Yahoo! Movies notes that Ayer’s involvement is yet to be confirmed, Suicide Squad is just the latest comic-book movie the WB has shown interest in – the studio’s four-year plan was leaked in June 2014, with Wonder Woman, Justice League, Sandman and Shazam all due big-screen outings.

With 20th Century Fox increasing its X-Men output (Deadpool movie due 2016), Sony concentrating on Sinister Six, and Marvel entering Phase 3, comic-book movies are still big business.

Below is the full list of DC planned projects/released dates:

  • Untitled DC Film – August 5, 2016 (likely Shazam)
  • Untitled DC Film – June 23, 2017 (b/u date for Shazam or Sandman)
  • Untitled DC Film – November 17, 2017 (possible Sandman date, Wonder Woman, Aquaman)
  • Untitled DC Film – March 23, 2018  (Suicide Squad?)
  • Untitled Animated Film – Memorial Day 2018
  • Untitled DC Film – July 27, 2018
