Now I bet you’re thinking that Ava DuVernay would not be a good fit for the DC cinematic universe that is being created, but that is exactly why she is needed. DuVernay has always favored unconventional, more socially conscious approaches to film, and with Suicide Squad being the most diverse superhero film DC/Warner Bros has put out, DuVernay could put her skill to make the sequel finally worthy of that accomplishment. Nothing in her filmography screams “action movie”, but you can see glimpses of stylized action in Selma that shows you the potential she has. Having also just released an enlightening documentary about prison as a new form of racial slavery in America, I’m sure she can put some much needed social relevance into Suicide Squad. Also, I would love to see what she would do with Viola Davis and how that changes the character of Amanda Waller.
