While production is winding down on the second DC Comics adaption in Warner Bros.’ new interconnected universe of superhero movies, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the studio is gearing up to get the cameras rolling on the next pic after BvS, Fury director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. The story revolves around a team of supervillains who work for the U.S. government, undertaking dangerous black ops missions in exchange for commuted prison sentences. It’s actually a pretty logical decision to place Suicide Squad so early in the DC Movie lineup, as audiences will get to know a number of the big villains before they face off against the heroes in later films.
Warner Bros. has been putting together an incredibly impressive cast that includes Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Jared Leto, and possibly Will Smith, and now we have firm details on when and where the Suicide Squad movie will start production. More after the jump.
