DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

James Gunn

There is now no release date for Suicide Squad 2.

James Gunn is joining the DC bandwagon with the director being all set to pen the sequel of Suicide Squad.

As of yet, no replacement director has been announced for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

There were plenty of people who were not happy to see Gunn back in the director's chair after he had been fired from Disney after dozens or Tweets resurfaced involving child rape and pedophilia. Fans have mixed emotions about Gunn directing the film and they made sure their opinions were voiced.

While everyone is inevitably excited and Dave Bautista's enthusiasm to join him has kicked off reams of speculation, it seems that Gunn might not be forced to make his movie into a sequel at all.

Trump decries calls to impeach Kavanaugh as an ‘insult to American public’
Some analysts said the court's reputation could suffer as it becomes perceived as a political, rather than a legal, institution. Kavanaugh on Monday said he was proud his newly hired law clerks are all women, a first for a Supreme Court justice.

io9's report includes phrases like "reportedly", which suggests that the outlet may have cobbled together enough inside info about the pending Gunn deal to elicit a clear response from Warner Bros. He has said that working for Disney has been "pretty nauseating" and has questioned his return to the third installment of the Guardians franchise, which has been put on hold since Gunn's firing. The comic book adaptation was written and directed by David Ayer for Warner Bros.

This is, in other words, possibly big news for Warner Bros., whose superhero films are for obvious reasons in direct and perpetual competition with Marvel and Disney's.

In September, CEO Bob Iger told THR, "The James Gunn decision was brought to me as a unanimous decision of a variety of executives at the studio, and I supported it ..."

Ayer was originally set to direct Gotham City Sirens, which seems to have gone by the wayside, and to chip in on Suicide Squad 2, which was greenlit nearly immediately after the first movie overperformed box office expectations despite poor reviews.
