Gibson has started enlightening himself with the material. But no official offer or comment has been made by the house as of yet.
Besides that, Warnar Bros is reportedly approaching substitutes including the Child 44 director Daniel Espinosa to join the DC Extended Universe.
The first outing was directed by David Ayer and featured an all-star cast that included Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto. Despite the stumbling blocks Suicide Squad faced in the production phase, it grossed over $745 million worldwide. The production house is pursuing the masking of the second edition regardless of the fact that audience reactions to the first movie were polarising.
Gibson is off to a good start this year. His latest war movie Hacksaw Ridge is riding high. The Desmond Doss biopic has nabbed six Oscar nominations, including one for Gibson for the award for best director. The box office collection for the movie is also lofty as it made $164 million worldwide till date.
In contempt of his drunk driving arrest and anti-Semitic comments in the 2000s, Gibson started to lose studio work but Hacksaw Ridge turned out to be the game changer for him. By directing the forthcoming sequel to Suicide Squad, the The Academy Award winning director will step into the club of making superhero movies for the first time.
Ayer, on the other hand, is now developing Gotham City Sirens, a project that reunites him with Robbie and focuses on the female villains of the DC Universe.
