You can’t just add ‘The’ in front of the title and call it a sequel.
The second Suicide Squad movie is a kind of reboot, kind of sequel which will retool the first movie while still trying to keep things moving forward. Really though, you have to ask why.
There’s a chance it could pull a Ragnarok and be a stroke of genius, but in all likelihood the flaws of the first film will continue to drag it down. A full on reboot feels like a much better option, especially given some of the sweeping changes made already.
