Suicide Squad 2 Might Get James Gunn As Writer & Director!
The Wrap is reporting that multiple source have confirmed that former Marvel Studios writer & director James Gunn is in talks to helm Suicide Squad 2 for Warner Bros and DC Entertainment. Gunn wrote and directed Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for Marvel before being fired recently for offensive tweets he posted years ago. This rumor says that Gunn will have a totally new take on the team of anti-heroes and villains from DC Comics, so it remains unclear if the team will be recast or simply introduce new characters. Gavin O'Conner, director of The Accountant, was hired to take the reigns of the film, but it seems as though he has left the project.
Currently, there are many DC properties being developed into films. This December will see the release of Aquaman, Shazam! is set to arrive in April of 2019, and Wonder Woman 1984 will also arrive next summer. Others movies on the way include Lobo, Justice League Dark, Justice League 2, Man of Steel 2, Booster Gold & Blue Beetle, Gotham City Sirens, Birds of Prey, Deadshot, Black Adam, Nightwing, Batgirl, Harley Quinn vs. Joker, Deathstroke, New Gods, The Joker, Blackhawks, and Supergirl. They also have a standalone film titled Joker set for release in October of 2019.
