Director James Gunn announced that filming has wrapped on The Suicide Squad, his sequel/reboot of DC's 2016 Suicide Squad.

Gunn made the announcement on Instagram with a photo of the movie's sprawling cast (many of whom are presumably expendable, commensurate with the film's title). Gunn also penned a heartfelt message to his cast, outlining his emotional journey through the experience of filming.


"And that’s a wrap on [The Suicide Squad]," reads Gunn's statement. "My father died two weeks before we started filming and my dog died two weeks before the end. It was a hard, hard time in my life and yet the most fulfilling time I’ve ever had making a movie."

"The professionalism, talent, compassion and kindness of this cast and crew inspired me every day," the statement concludes. "Thanks to everyone involved in this film, in every stage of development, in every department - I am grateful from the bottom of my heart for you all. You are why I make movies."

Gunn will presumably start prepping for his return to Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy franchise soon. 

The Suicide Squad is due out in theaters August 6, 2021.
