The sudden outbreak of Corona Virus has not only put a pause on the shoot of the ongoing films but has also delayed the release of several films. As a matter of luck, for James Gunn, the shoot of his movie The Suicide Squad was able to finish it’s filming just on time.
The Director of DC ‘s The Suicide Team, James Gunn, says that there will be no change in the release date of his film. According to the current scenario, Hollywood films are facing a crucial phase due to the sudden outbreak of Corona Virus. The shoot of the movie are all pushed due to health crisis, and the movies that were up for release are all changing their statements due to the worsening conditions.
As of now, one of the most awaited films for 2023 is James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. The fans of this film thought that the sudden outbreak of the virus must have led to the shelving of this film too. But, for now, this film’s release is right on time as per the Director.
Director James confirmed the release details through a tweet.
James Gunn was answering on Twitter regarding the delay of films at this moment. Although the maximum fan questions were focussing on Marvel releases, Gunn confirmed that Suicide Squad was “on schedule “. Check his tweet.
I wish we were but, as you might imagine, although editing #TheSuicideSquad has been pretty smooth in the time of quarantine (I’m working on the cut right now), there are a lot of other factors slowed – some of those related to releasing images, trailers, etc. https://t.co/Mk64ax3fUu

For now, the Suicide Squad won’t hit the theatres at present.
The primary photograph of Suicide Squad was done by February, so all the significant work was on the verge of completion before the virus hit on a large scale. According to the release schedule, the film is not running the theatre in August 2023, which indicates the team has enough time to wrap up the film. The visual effect team can work on the movie from home, but still, they need an office for the completion.
At present, there is no confirmation on how the film will be completed, but as per reports, the team is trying to wrap up as much part of the movie as possible.
The dates for release are not confirmed yet.
Like most of the Big Studio film does, The Suicide Squad may have decided the additional time for Standard photography. But, the confirmation on this can only come once the standard shoot and activities can resume. At present, it is too optimistic to think that the post-production can workout time, but as we know that the release is on schedule for August 2023, we can have hopes.
