DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

Additionally, Gizmodo reported it had confirmed with Warner Bros. that Gunn is in talks to write, with "an eye to direct" the yet-to-be-named Suicide Squad 2.

If it all pans out, a Gunn-directed Suicide Squad could give the limping franchise a much-needed boost of credibility.

Gunn moving from Marvel to DC isn't exactly a surprise, but it sure happened quickly, and the project in question is perhaps the most ideal fit for his sensibilities: Suicide Squad 2. Not to answer out of turn, but considering Warners made the trailer for the first film resemble a Guardians of the Galaxy film, it seems like a good fit.

As of yet, no replacement director has been announced for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Despite this, the Guardians of the Galaxy's main cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn and Bautista, who all still supported him and asked for Disney to reinstate Gunn as the film's director.

A buyer would not normally be expected to go through with the purchase if a work is damaged while in the care of an auction house. Geneva-based artist Pierre Koukjian, who was at the auction , said the buyer was "very lucky" to own a now-historic piece.

It's not clear which members of the cast will return, but you have to expect Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn (who will next be seen in 2020's Birds Of Prey movie) is a lock, as well as Will Smith's Deadshot.

Gunn will reportedly have a "completely new take" on the franchise, though exactly what that means is unclear. We are left to wonder what happened to the Suicide Squad 2 that WB hired The Accountant director Gavin O'Connor for, but I seriously doubt anyone will miss that project.

They can still say Drax is in the third movie - he's just invisible. All I can do now, beyond my honest and heartfelt regret, is to be the best human being I can be: accepting, understanding, committed to equality, and far more thoughtful about my public statements and my obligations to our public discourse.
