The Suicide Squad director James Gunn went on to Twitter to clarifies what he said a day ago in regards to The Suicide Squad release date not being moved due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
As previously reported on April 10th, Gunn reassured fans that the move is still on schedule, then once again he tweeted a day ago that they were actually ahead of schedule and at the moment there’s no reason for the date to move, which even Suicide Squad director David Ayer responded to with “Beautiful to hear. This is the kind of resilience and creativity we all need right now.”
Though now that the media has picked up these tweets, Gunn went on to clarify he really didn’t assure anything, that the movie being delayed is not completely his call, but he goes on to say once again the coronavirus hasn’t slowed down any of his projects.
Well, I didn’t really assure anything: that’s not completely my call, and who knows what the future will bring. I just said coronavirus hasn’t slowed either project down in any considerable manner and right now all the plans for both remain exactly the same as they were. https://t.co/Fdw81bE9gR

Right now there’s no reason for #TheSuicideSquad release date to move. We are on or ahead of schedule. We were extremely fortunate to wrap shooting & set up editing from our homes (due to a post production team & studio with foresight) before quarantine. https://t.co/URRFXX58r3
