Rumors abound in Hollywood that Mel Gibson (actor from Mad Max and Lethal Weapon) is in talks to director Suicide Squad 2 for WB and DC. Gibson had some, uh, issues a few years ago and had been sort of ostracized, but recently he has been in the director's chair for Oscar-nominated Hacksaw Ridge. Other director credits include Braveheart and The Passion of the Christ.

One notable similarity between Hacksaw Ridge and Braveheart? Ensamble casts centered around military stories. This sounds like a good idea for Suicide Squad and, after David Ayer's disappointing (at least critcally) Suicide Squad, a change of pace may be a good plan. If anyone understands action films and acting, it's Mel Gibson.
Could this be his big Hollywood comeback? Or will it fizzle out?
