Guy Richie has been known for directing great period pieces in recent years. From directing the first Sherlock Holmes films with Robert Downey Jr. To directing last year’s cult hit The Man From Uncle with Superman himself, Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. And lastly, with this year’s King Arthur starring Charlie Hunnam. While speaking with Variety the director reveals he would love to tackle DC Comics Suicide Squad but unfortunately due to scheduling (mostly likely Disney’s Aladdin) he wouldn’t be able to:
“I quite fancy doing Suicide Squad 2, because I thought I could do a good job with it. I can’t do it because I’m doing something else, but I’ve felt I could really do something with that.”
Now currently we don’t know if Guy Richie has even spoken with Warner Brothers about any future DC films but considering most of his films have been at their studio it isn’t out of the realm of possibility. Be great to see him tackle a DC film in future, however. Mel Gibson is the only director so far who has been in talks with the studio to tackle the sequel.
