DC's Suicide Squad sequel/reboot is finally entering into its pre-production phase, and to mark the milestone director James Gunn has shared a number of photos of the film's behind-the-scenes downtime set-up.

Oh, and he also dropped a pretty big hint about the possible return of Harley Quinn in the film too.

With The Suicide Squad being described as more of a reboot than a sequel in recent months, the film has been keeping fans guessing over which of the original Suicide Squad stars would be coming back for the movie.

While the likes of Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang will both be back, for example, Will Smith won't be returning as Deadshot and although it's been reported that it's likely Margot Robbie will be back as Harley Quinn, there hasn't been any official confirmation.

Sadly, there's still nothing official on that front, but while James Gunn's latest Instagram post mainly teased the arrival of King Shark to the Worlds of DC, if you scroll across to picture number three you can see that 'Harley' gets a pretty big mention too.

Margot Robbie herself has been working on another Harley Quinn movie this year in the form of Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) which wrapped filming in April this year ahead of its currently scheduled release on February 7, 2020.

With Gunn's The Suicide Squad scheduled to start production in September, Margot Robbie should be fine to slip back into the shorts and baseball bat get-up in time to film scenes for the reboot – unless, of course, this is all just one big fake-out.

Meanwhile, we already know that The Suicide Squad will definitely feature David Dastmalchian as obscure Batman baddie Polka-Dot Man, Michael Rooker as King Shark and Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, as well as John Cena, Idris Elba and Storm Reid.

As for any more details, we'll just have to wait and see.

The Suicide Squad is released in cinemas on August 6, 2021.
