James Gunn Signs On To Direct Suicide Squad 2!

The Hollywood Reporter reports that James Gunn has been hired by Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment to direct Suicide Squad 2! The writer/director/producer was hired to pen the screenplay back in 2018, and now it seems as though the studio wants the Guardians of the Galaxy helmer to take over directing duties. He's the perfect choice for this team of misfits and hopefully goes a bit darker with the subject material than David Ayer's film did. The film will take place in the DCEU, but will feature mostly new characters. The studio has set the film for a August 6, 2021 release date.
