Today’s podcast covers some quick news on Suicide Squad 2, the return of DC TV to The CW, and more.
Michael De Luca joins Suicide Squad sequel as a producer- Variety
- Prolific producer – Oscar nominations for Social Network, Moneyball, and Captain Phillips; also has worked on Fifty Shades franchise
- (DC Daily Drop from November) – also producing New Line/Vertigo film The Kitchen
- Filming could occur in Fall of 2018 with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto
- “The addition of De Luca seems to signal that the studio would prefer having a central figure focused on a single project rather than having one individual oversee several films, as Charles Roven and Zack Snyder had been doing up until these recent stumbles.”
