Sure, 2018 Aquaman He staggered into a considerable change at the box office, but he didn't exactly surprise critics and fans with his narration.
On the other hand, Shazam! He received strong reviews for his direction and performances, but it did not become the blockbuster that Warner Bros. could have been waiting for.

Presumably taking place after the events of Birds of prey, The suicide squad It only brings some key figures from the first movie (namely, Harley Quinn, as well as Amanda Waller, Rick Flag and Captain Boomerang), and we are still not completely sure how the story will take. However, some leaked images of the movie set not only show Harley Quinn, but also give our first look at Idris Elba, who is widely speculated that he will take on the role of Vigilante. The brief clip also causes the arrival of Polka-Dot Man, a minor supervillain who made his first appearance at number 300 of Detective Comics Vol 1, as well as Ratcatcher. Unlike the original character, this particular version of the flutist will be feminine, with Daniela Melchior assuming the role.
We are not completely sure what other superheroes and villains will appear (although we know that the Joker will be absent), and with The suicide squad Scheduled to launch on August 6, 2021, we have a little wait ahead.
