Suicide Squad may not have fared particularly well with critics, but it was a box office success, so you probably won't be too surprised to learn that a sequel is in the early stages in development. However, in a very unexpected twist, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Mel Gibson is in early talks to take the helm of the movie! 

He's a long way off signing up to direct, and the trade adds that he's currently familiarising himself with the comic books to see if it's a property he would be interested in working on. Warner Bros. is hedging their bets, though, as Daniel Espinosa (Safe) is also being considered along with a number of others that Variety lists as being Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies). 

With Suicide Squad's David Ayer busy working on Gotham City Sirens, it makes sense that he's not returning, and Gibson would most definitely shake the franchise up. The actor and filmmaker spend years on Hollywood's bad side, but he's turned things around in recent years, most recently by directing the Oscar-nominated Hacksaw Ridge

@MattBellissimo - April fools is a bit early this year.

He's a great director, would be a monumental land, but I would not use him for SSquad.
