James Gunn is set to direct and write The Suicide Squad, which may now have a working title.
According to a new report from Production Weekly, the sequel to 2016's Suicide Squad will enter production under the name El Dorado. El Dorado is the name of a legendary city of gold, or man of gold, depending on how far back into the Spanish myth you want to go. The name might tease something about the plot, though it's pretty much impossible to tell at this point, since sometimes working titles don't have much relation to the final product.
There are a number of unconfirmed rumors circulating about Suicide Squad, some of which claim Warner Bros. will be introducing several new characters to the franchise, including Ratcatcher, Polka-Dot Man, King Shark and Peacemaker. There are also rumors that this film will serve as a soft reboot for the franchise. Although the movie's final cast hasn't been confirmed, Harley Quinn, Amanda Waller and Deadshot are likely to return, with Idris Elba currently in talks to replace Will Smith.
Known for his work on the Guardians of the Galaxy films, Gunn became involved with the Suicide Squad sequel in 2018 following an abrupt and controversial exit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Suicide Squad sequel is currently scheduled for release on Aug 6, 2021.
