Say what you will about Mel Gibson’s character, but the dude can direct his ass off. And honestly, if the Hollywood elites (who are largely Jewish) have forgiven him, then maybe we should too. Donald Trump is president, after all.
If you’ve read or seen anything about the DC Extended Universe in the last, uh, I don’t know three f*cking years, you’ll know that it’s a mess. Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad were both poorly edited, misguided, choppy, tone-deaf shitshows, and reportedly, there are issues with Wonder Woman and Justice League (WW is going to rock and JL will be average, but better than BvS, you heard it here first).
In the last week, the DCEU lost Ben Affleck as the director of The Batman, but it may have gained a Suicide Squad 2 director in Mel Gibson.
Warner Bros. is courting the actor-director to helm Suicide Squad 2 and the sides are early in talks, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. No official offer has been made nor has any commitment. Sources say that Gibson is familiarizing himself with the material. But the studio is not being passive and is also looking at other directors, Daniel Espinosa among them.
David Ayer directed the initial outing, which featured an all-star cast that included Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto. The 2016 movie faced some hurdles during production and was met with somewhat polarizing response, but grossed $745 million worldwide, enough to put a sequel on the fast-track.
Ayer is now developing Gotham City Sirens, a project that reunites him with Robbie and focuses on the female villains of the DC Universe.
