“Hey James, quick question and correct me if I’m wrong. Are you filming Suicide Squad then going to do Guardians 3 afterwards?” a fan asked in the comments section on Gunn’s Instagram yesterday (September 29).
To which Gunn replied: “You are correct.” He then added, “But I won’t start on Vol 3 [of the Guardians] until after Squad is finished editing, not filming.”

Filming for The Suicide Squad began earlier this month, shortly after Gunn revealed the movie’s full cast, which includes SNL’s Pete Davidson, Idris Elba and former Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi.
Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney, who previously appeared as Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang respectively in David Ayer’s 2016 supervillain movie, will reprise their roles in Gunn’s reboot. Other previous cast members on board for Gunn’s film include Viola Davis and Joel Kinnaman.
