During an Instagram Q&A with fans, a fan asked, “Would you accept The Man of Steel if it were offered to you? Plus has it been offered?” The filmmaker responded: “As has been reported many times, DC offered me whatever film I wanted to do, including some sort of Superman movie (not specifically Man of Steel 2 as I’ve seen reported). I chose The Suicide Squad because it’s one of my favorite properties in the world. It’s the story I wanted to tell more than any other.”
