David Ayer has hinted at several potential Suicide Squad plot points on Twitter.
Ayer will direct the DC Comics adaptation, which unites super-villains Deadshot (Will Smith), Rick Flag and Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) on a mission of redemption.
Suicide Squad will also feature Jared Leto as iconic DC Comics villain The Joker and Margot Robbie as his sidekick/love interest Harley Quinn.
Ayer has made a series of cryptic tweets over the last week, hinting at the overall storyline and Harley Quinn's motives for joining the Suicide Squad.
"The case of Harley Quinn: Her madness defines her. Is she mad because of WHO she loves or because she loves him so much? #skwad," the director tweeted.
Ayer followed with a pair of tweets about whether Suicide Squad will adhere to the DC Comics canon.
"The eternal question: To canon, or not to canon? ;-)," he initially wrote, before sharing a photo of the comics along with the caption: "Canon #skwad - The DC universe is too rich to go very far astray."
Tom Hardy was initially cast as Suicide Squad leader Rick Flag, although he has since dropped out.
Warner Bros is apparently eyeing Jon Bernthal and Joel Edgerton to replace Hardy, while Viola Davis will portray government operative Amanda Waller and Cara Delevingne will play Enchantress.
