Despite Gunn announced back in February that filming was wrapped on the sequel, and regardless of the encouraging news, however, Gunn pointed out that we might not get any Suicide Squad trailers for the moment.

Answering a Twitter user question regarding a first official image for the movie, Gunn replied, "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."

Disney originally fired Gunn from “GotG” movie over resurfaced controversial tweets, then re-hired, which delayed the movie's development, in the meantime, Warner Bros. also hired him to direct “The Suicide Squad” sequel, which he agreed to shoot “GotG” after the DC Comics movie is finished.

Not much is known about “The Suicide Squad,” sequel except that it’s a standalone sequel to 2016’s “Suicide Squad”, as well as it will witness the return of stars from the 2016 movie including, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, and Joel Kinnaman.

The sequel also features newcomers Idris Elba, John Cena, Peter Capaldi, Taika Waititi, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Nathan Fillion, Michael Rooker, and Pete Davidson, and others.
