Why the Suicide Squad Sequel Director Might Be a Good Fit

Remember all the talk about Mel Gibson directing a Suicide Squad sequel? They haven't come to pass. And here's why...

It looks like Ben Affleck may have had a hand in hooking up a previous director pal, The Accountant's Gavin O'Connor, whose film may have been preposterous at times, but did pull a very different performance than usual out of the Aff-able One.

Does this mean Batman will appear in the franchise again? We don't know that, though since the Warner Bros. default setting is to put Batman in everything they can, that seems likely. But we do have at least one other demand, er, request. And it has nothing to do with Jared Leto...for now.

If they ignore it, it's not gonna kill us...it's just gonna hurt us really, really bad. In the feels.
