Warner Bros. rumored to be contemplating multiple Suicide Squad spinoffs

05.25.2016

Last week a report surfaced that a SUICIDE SQUAD spinoff featuring Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn is in the works, and according to We Got This Covered, Warner Bros. is also eyeing solo films for several other Task Force X members. Which ones, you ask? Obviously nothing is set in stone yet, but the site's source claims that the studio is very high on Jared Leto's The Joker and Jai Courtney's Captain Boomerang.

They’re going to do a sequel for sure, and the recently announced spinoff with Margot Robbie has got everyone excited, too, but their plans don’t end there. The studio is feeling very confident in the property. They think it’s going to be a really big hit and they think audiences are going to fall in love with these characters.

I’ve heard more than a few talks of giving some of the other Task Force X members their own spinoffs, and like the Harley Quinn one, these films would open the door for a ton of new DC characters to show up.

The Joker is a definite possibility for a spinoff, and Jared [Leto] seems up for it from what I’ve been told. They’re also really hot on Jai Courtney’s character Boomerang right now. Nothing’s set in stone yet, but you’re definitely going to be seeing a lot more of these guys in the years to come.”

I wouldn't be surprised if Warner Bros. is also considering a solo outing for Will Smith's Deadshot, since Smith is still a big name actor, and the rumor is his character may have a major role in the next Batman flick. Which SUICIDE SQUAD member would you like to see get a solo movie?

SUICIDE SQUAD will be in theaters on August 5, 2016.

None of them.....

They are villains (most of them B-villains), so how do they get a spinoff? What is the possible plot? How they steal and murder? If this works, it's because they're obviously fighting something Earth-threatening so they play anti-heroes, not bad guys per se.

The Harley thing might work because she's such an interesting character and Robbie is such a hot actress right now. But please don't let there be a Captain Boomerang spinoff. Seriously. . . out of all the DC stuff coming out THAT

LOL just LOL. They can't get Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman in an actual good movie, and now they're planning spinoffs of villains in a movie that hasn't even been released yet? Captain Boomerang solo movie...really???? lol. No wonder DCCU is in the shitter. Learn to fucking prioritize and even better learn how to take time to craft an actual story.

An Anti-hero is one thing, but why would we watch a Joker solo film? If they give him any redeemable qualities I'd be disappointed. Dude should be nothing but evil.

What the fuck is the matter with WB/DC? Their first official movie in the DCEU was almost a bust and didn't perform nearly as well as expected. They've been scrambling behind the scenes to course correct those issues moving forward. And this is all in an attempt to keep the current plan on track.

Now, without any reviews or audience reactions, they're ready to green light a sequel to Suicide Squad as well as spinoffs? Sounds completely stupid to me. At this rate, wait to see what the

Now, without any reviews or audience reactions, they're ready to green light a sequel to Suicide Squad as well as spinoffs? Sounds completely stupid to me. At this rate, wait to see what the reaction is to the first movie before green lighting ANYTHING. And don't even bother with doing spinoffs of these characters, it won't hold any weight. Like it'd be cool to see them show up as villains in other movies, but not the star of their own movie - that's just dumb.

Since when critics are so important? X3 and Origins made a ton of money and FOX keep makin X-Men movies (and very successful ones). And BvS was very expensive but SS will probably be a hit makin 200 million domestic, and I'm pretty sure it will. And even if SS it's bad, a lot of people are going to see a Joker solo film if it happens, and of course a new Batman movie.

No way. They are just trying to hype the movie. BvS left a bad taste in everyone's mouth, plus the behind the scenes rumblings for this film has been very negative. WB is in major damage control mode right now. Remember how in BvS WB kept leaking reports of how brilliant Eisenberg's Luther was? How about their standing ovation for BvS? This news is just WB playing games once again.

I like the optimism and confidence that DC is showing with Suicide Squad, but I don't want to really see the whole gang spun off into their own solo or team up films with one another. I just think that this core of characters work better, are better and more interesting and exciting when they're together than apart. I don't really care to see a solo film of Captain Boomerang, or just the Joker doing their own thing.

It's quality not quantity; DC would be smart not to screw up what they have

Really confident that SS will do well

I'm optimistic that Suicide Squad will be the Guardians of the Galaxy for DC and will resurrect confidence for the DCCU. However, let's not jump the gun and start greenlighting everything. Have Jared Leto show up in Affleck's Batman and the Harley Quinn movie, and call it a day. Don't overuse actors/characters because they eventually lose their value.

No, they're not. Nobody in their right fucking mind is going to pay to see Jai Courtney headlining a movie.

I'd pay to see Jai Courtney headline his own flick. I'd be there opening night. I've been a big fan since Spartacus. The movies he is in are usually not the greatest but those are not his fault. Wouldn't matter who was in Die Hard 5 it would have still been garbage.
