Now that James Gunn and Peter Safran are in charge of the DCU, they’ve promised us some exciting interconnected projects for the future. Marvel offers Avengers: Secret Wars as their biggest crossover event in 2025. So what if DC counters it with Justice League 2, or maybe a Civil War type event where the Justice League faces off against a mix of Suicide Squad and JSA in 2026? It could be their End of Game!
Rumor has it that Waller is bringing in a new team called Checkmate which will include Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke. So, it’s likely his Suicide Squad will morph into this new team and they could be the ones to take on the Justice League in the proposed Royal Rumble event. Former Suicide Squad members and a few new surprises are hidden in Waller’s underwater prison (from black adam), who could be called upon to form the team.
Suicide Squad 3.0
Imagine the cast! There’s Dwayne Johnson playing Black Adam, Idris Elba playing Bloodsport, Joe Manganiello playing Deathstroke, Margot Robbie playing Harley Quinn, Sylvester Stallone’s King Shark, Daniella Melchior’s Ratcatcher II and maybe even John Cena’s Peacemaker! It’s an interesting prospect because the Rock and John Cena could give us a WWE reunion. That would be a total Alpha level team! And when they take on the Justice League, all the fascinating ideas we’ve dreamed up could come true.

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad
We could have our Superman vs. Black Adam moment, and even a Shazam vs. Black Adam fight could be covered in it. But at the same time, we would also have a Batfleck vs. Deathstroke battle that was promised but never happened. And imagine King Shark fighting King Arthur. Won’t that be so cool? Bloodsport took down Superman with a Kryptonian bullet. So what if he somehow finds a way to hurt Flash this time? A lot of those one-on-one matchups could happen.
The Justice League roster
But still, if you think about it, although the Suicide Squad has powerhouses like Black Adam and Ratcatcher 2… 3 masterful assassins… a talking bad boy Shark and a crazed Harley Quinn, the Justice League is still too overpowered for them. Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Shazam could take on Black Adam in a one-on-one battle and win if the writer sees fit. The 4 of them pressing a Black Adam would be too much even for him.

And then there’s Batman the master tactician, Barry Allen, Martian Manhunter, the mighty last survivor of Mars, and probably even Cyborg, a god of the digital age. Guess what, we haven’t even talked about a potential Green Lantern joining the team, or Sasha Calle’s Supergirl who’s supposed to become a DCEU regular after. the flash. So how will the inferior team manage to take on the DC Mavericks? Well, that’s where the JSA comes in.
JSA roster meets Suicide Squad
Suicide Squad 3.0 desperately needs a boost. But instead of picking up more new villains, imagine if the Justice Society of America could join their cause. They have connections with Amanda Waller who could call them. So Atom Smasher, Hawkman, Cyclone, and possibly a new Doctor Fate could join the ranks to fight the Justice League.

An all-in-one project
Not only would this project act as a DC Civil War-like event, but it could also act as a Black Adam vs. Shazam movie, a Black Adam vs. Superman movie, a Batman V Deathstroke movie, a Suicide Squad 3, and a Justice League 2. at once. And ultimately, that could lead us to the eventual Justice League 3 where all of these divided Earth-based characters unite against the evil forces of Darkseid. Keeping the current DCU situation in mind, this would be a good idea of what Zack Snyder originally wanted to do with his DCEU crossover events.
So if James Gunn starts by 2023 he could have all the upcoming projects like Shazam! 2, Aquaman 2, flash, and wonder woman 3 lead us into this mega-crossover event by 2026. And that’s how DC draws its first blood against Marvel’s Avengers: Secret Wars.
