No plot details have been announced yet, but Jared Leto has also signed on to be an executive producer for the movie, which could be... interesting.
A Suicide Squad sequel is also in the post, due to go into production in 2019, and that's aside from the now in-development The Batman from Matt Reeves, helmsman of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes.
