Gunn took inspiration for the film from John Ostrander's original 1980s run on the Suicide Squad comics, but described his script as more of a sequel in the same spirit as those comics rather than an adaptation of them. The film is R-rated, with the main characters often "splattered in blood". Gunn said each member of the Suicide Squad in the film was inspired by a different film genre, and explained that he was drawn to Ostrander's take on the team because each of his characters were "loser, B-grade supervillains".
The Suicide Squad will be out 6 August 2021 in Cinema.
