A lot of bodies dropped in Suicide Squad last year, from faceless minions to FBI agents who saw information they weren't supposed to. Even a few main characters were killed off (as one can usually expect from a Suicide Squad tale), but Cara Delevingne's character, June Moone, managed to survive, while her evil alter-ego, The Enchantress, met a crushing end. With Suicide Squad 2 on the horizon, there's potential for June to return as an ally rather an adversary, but Delevingne doesn't believe she'll be back for the sequel. While talking about Suicide Squad, Delevingne said:
It was a life-changing experience and of course I'd do another one, but I don't think it would make sense for the character. I'll probably still be on the set hanging out with everyone.
Now that June Moone is freed from The Enchantress' curse and not trying to enslave the Earth while performing a weird dance, no doubt she would want to get as much distance between her and Task Force X as possible. The big question then is if Amanda Waller would comply with that wish, because even though June isn't Enchantress anymore, Waller is notoriously controlling and wouldn't want June revealing anything about her operations. Regardless, while Cara Delevingne may be up to appearing in Suicide Squad 2, she indicated to USA Today that she doesn't expect that to happen. If June doesn't appear in the sequel, then ideally we'll find out from her boyfriend, Rick Flagg, where she is (if there still together, that is). Maybe she managed to leave this life behind and resume her archaeology career.
When Suicide Squad ended, all of the surviving Squad members were locked back into Belle Reve and taking advantage of their new privileges (except for Captain Boomerang, who wasn't given any perks because couldn't keep his mouth shut). But in the final minute, Harley Quinn was broken out by The Joker, which paved the way for the upcoming Gotham City Sirens movie. As for Suicide Squad 2, no cast or character details have been announced yet, so it remains to be seen how many members from the first movie will be back and who will be recruited to the team. Behind the camera, The Shallows' Jaume Collett-Serra is reportedly the top candidate to succeed David Ayer as director. The Incredible Hulk's Zak Penn recently wrote a new Suicide Squad 2 treatment, which the new script will be based on.
Suicide Squad 2 doesn't have a set release date yet, but keep checking back with CinemaBlend for more updates. You can also look through what other DCEU movies are currently in development. Cara Delevingne will be back on the big screen in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets starting this Friday.
