Rumor: ‘Suicide Squad 2’ to take place in the Middle East, could be rated R

Over the weekend, Suicide Squad 2 co-writer Todd Stashwick revealed that the script has been finished. He said the movie is a sequel to the first and will tell an exciting, deeper story about the characters. With the script done, plot details are starting to leak out.

According to scooper @DanielRPK (via SuperBroMovies), Suicide Squad 2 will take place primarily in the Middle East. This was to help set up an appearance from The Rock’s Black Adam, which was reported by The Wrap late last year, but unfortunately it seems like his busy schedule will prevent him from being able to do the movie. Instead, an unknown DC character is rumored to be taking his place.

Suicide Squad 2 is also said to be a “grounded, black ops style film” that could be targeting an R rating. Director Gavin O’Connor is hoping that shift in tone will help differentiate the sequel from the first movie.

Assuming these rumors are true, who do you think should take Black Adam’s place as the Suicide Squad heads to the Middle East? Let me know in the comments below.
