WATCH: Mel Gibson further confirms he IS in talks of some sort for Suicide Squad 2

February 27th, 2017 by Marc Comments

So, remember the rumours that Mel Gibson was in talks to direct Suicide Squad 2? That were then sort of confirmed by the actor?

Well he was put on the spot by EW (video below) last night at the Oscars and he did indeed confirm that there are talks going on but he seemed to be trying to seem nonchalant about the whole thing.

But he’s not fooling us… we saw that glint in his eye!

“I just met some guys about story points. It’s not a done deal or anything,” Gibson said, “But it’s just fun to shoot the bull when it comes to stories. I love doing it. And if we can elevate any kind of concept it’s good. We’ll see.”

With Matt Reeves set for The Batman and Chris McKay set for Nightwing, we have a strong feeling that we mightn’t be too far away from an announcement that Gibson has the Suicide Squad gig and we would love to see what he does with Task Force X… wouldn’t you?

Let us know.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
