Producer Peter Safran has revealed that the upcoming "Suicide Squad" movie will be a "total reboot". Safran said the James Gunn-directed film has a lot to offer in comparison to the 2016 film, reported Contactmusic.

"First of all, we don't call it 'Suicide Squad 2' because it's a total reboot, so it's 'The Suicide Squad' and I think people should be extremely excited about it.
"It's everything you would hope from a James Gunn script and I think that says a lot and that promises a lot and I know that we will deliver a lot," Safran said. 

The original 'Suicide Squad' movie, which had a star-studded cast that included the likes of Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Cara Delevingne, performed well at the box office, but was widely panned by the critics. The new will have Idris Elba playing Deadshot which was earlier played by Will Smith.
