Neither Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice nor Suicide Squad have hit cinemas yet but already Warner Bros. are reportedly planning a sequel to latter.

In a report by The Wrap on David Ayer’s Will Smith starring thriller Bright, they casually mention that discussions have already begun on a sequel to the villain-led flick.

“Ayer hopes to fit the project into his fall schedule before Warner Bros. brings him and Smith back for a planned Suicide Squad sequel in 2017,” it reads.

If work does begin on the film in 2017, surely we should expect the sequel in 2018 - the same year both The Flash and Aquaman are expected to launch; two titles people are slightly skeptical about.

Shoehorning the film into the schedule could disrupt a number of things, including the release of a Ben Affleck starring Batman spin-off film, which currently does not have a release date. We have contacted Warner Bros for to comment but have yet to hear anything back.

Suicide Squad - which hits cinemas 5 August - stars Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Joel Kinnaman and Viola Davis as members of the squad, while Affleck will also appear as The Dark Knight.

Here's our guide to all the Suicide Squad members.
