Now it's being said Suicide Squad 2 may start filming the Fall of 2018 due to Will Smith's schedule.
A reporter for Variety tweeted out that that he is hearing at the earliest, Suicide Squad 2 won't go into production until at least the Fall of 2018 due to Will Smith having to film on Aladdin and Gemini.

Will Smith is also involved with Bad Boy 3, but recently Martin Lawrence stated he doesn't think it will be happening, so at least that won't be interfering with Suicide Squad 2.
No plot details or release date is known for Suicide Squad 2, but the latest is it has been said Jared Leto will be back as Joker, and that It director Andy Muschietti is being eyed to direct.
