Regarding the music for The Suicide Squad, James Gunn responded to fan questions on social media.

Responding to another fan’s question if The Suicide Squad will be music-heavy, too, Gunn tweeted: “Music is an incredibly important part of ALL of my films, both soundtrack and score. So, yeah. But it will be a lot different than Guardians musically – and in so many other ways.”
