DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

James Gunn, the writer-director behind Marvel's mega-hit Guardians of the Galaxy films, has been tapped to write the sequel to 2016's Suicide Squad, ET has confirmed.

According to Variety film reporter Justin Kroll, there's another reason why O'Connor is no longer behind the helm: his story for Suicide Squad 2 apparently "ended up being nearly identical to the Birds of Prey story".

When James Gunn was announced as the new leading contender to both write and direct Suicide Squad 2 in the wake of David Ayer's departure and the unexpected (and unreported) news that Gavin O'Connor has also stepped down, the hype factor was immediately turned up.

"Sign me up too", Rosenbaum replied, who happens to be a good friend to Gunn.

What McGregor/Khabib Camps Are Saying After Fight-Night In Las Vegas
Fights broke out in and around the cage, with a red-shirted fan landing several blows on McGregor before security intervened. He also held that Khabib's performance "legitimized every criticism anyone has ever had" in regards to McGregor's career.

Since then the disappointment of Justice League sent shockwaves through the DC brand, and Warner Bros. has been rapidly retooling their slate of superhero fare. Gunn's Suicide Squad could conceivably differ from Ayer's in terms of story alone, thereby employing numerous first film's same cast members and characters. Either way, Gunn has already proven himself more than capable of making comic book-adapted movies about big dysfunctional groups of characters.

Gunn's Guardians films were well-reviewed, but that didn't save his job when the old tweets, which were sent between 2008 and 2012, were made public. Gunn, particularly if he ends up directing the film, has the chops to do the Suicide Squad justice, allowing them to have a whole lot of devilish fun while discovering, and earning, a sense of kinship.

"As I have discussed publicly many times, as I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humour". Since Gunn's firing, the status of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 remains unclear. If Bautista does end up in the second Suicide Squad film, Bane would be a great choice for the performer to play. The Guardians and Suicide Squad share a number of similarities, after all, and Gunn will once again dig into what he knows and does best: off-beat, high-concept films.

Shortly after news of Gunn's departure from the Guardians franchise broke, the now-controversial filmmaker issued a statement with regard to his online actions that had occured several years prior to Disney asking him to construct the journey of Marvel's favorite space-faring a-holes.
