Suicide Squad 2 still has no release date.

suicide squad 2: gotham and 12 monkeys star co-writing script

Though he may have only lasted two episodes of Gotham–appearing as “The Mask” Richard Sionis in Seasons 1 and 2–Todd Stashwick isn’t ready to leave the DC universe just yet. The actor, who also stars on 12 Monkeys as Deacon, will co-write the sequel to Suicide Squad.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Stashwick and co-writer David Bar Katz will tackle the script, alongside Suicide Squad 2 director Gavin O’Connor. The duo is taking over from Adam Cozad (Legend of Tarzan), who previously worked on the movie’s script.

The movie will be Stashwick’s first feature writing credit. However, given his intimate knowledge of DC villains–thanks to his playing one–he could very well be the right choice when it comes to writing an entire movie about them. Katz has a bit more experience. After writing a number of projects with John Leguizamo in the 1990s, his script for The Man in the Rockefeller Suit landed on the black list–the annual list of highly regarded scripts that have not yet been produced. He’s also developing a film with Warner Bros. and Robert Downey Jr.’s production company.

The news was first revealed when Stashwick appeared on an episode of the web series Popcorn Talk. The actor says it came about after working with O’Connor as an actor, leading to them discussing the project and their shared DC fandom.

No release date or story details have been announced for the sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad. It’s also not the only villain-centric DC film in the works. It was recently revealed that Jared Leto’s Joker is getting a standalone movie. There’s also that Margot Robbie-led Birds of Prey film, in which she reprises her role as Harley Quinn.
