James Gunn clarifies truth behind Will Smith return for Suicide Squad 3

There's plenty of rumors about a new Suicide Squad that have been floating around on over the internet recently.

Among the rumors about The Suicide Squad is the follow-up is going to bring back Will Smith as Deadshot.

However, it appears that this couldn't be any further from reality, as per James Gunn.

For what it's worth, Gunn's statement doesn't clarify if he's attached to the third live-action adaptation of Suicide Squad since he might not be a part of it at all.

Ultimately, it's curious why Warner Bros. hasn't confirmed a third Suicide Squad film yet if it's even ever in the works.

Ultimately, it looks like Will Smith's return to the DCEU all lies in the hands of whoever Warner Bros. Discovery hires to take over the entire cinematic universe.
