James Gunn Boards ‘Suicide Squad 2’ To Write And Possibly Direct

Postby Blue Jackets » Wed Oct 10, 2018 6:22 am

James Gunn has been hired by Warner Bros and DC to write with an eye to direct the next installment of the Suicide Squad franchise. It’s the first job he’s taken since he parted ways with Disney, which let him go from the lucrative Guardians of the Galaxy franchise in July in the wake of old controversial tweets that had been compiled by alt-right journalists and sent to Disney.

Being told that Gunn's SUICIDE SQUAD will not be a sequel, he will have a whole new take on it. But whether that means a total recasting or not is unclear.

I came here to say I wasn't interested, but if it's a whole new thing and not a continuation of the original train wreck of a movie, I may see it.

Dave Bautista wants to be in the movie to show his support for Gunn...and I imagine because he wants to be in more movies

But also for Gunn! He said he would break his contract to leave GotG3 before after Gunn was dropped.

I didn't think the first one was bad. It could have beena lot better, sure

First, you're wrong.
Second, you're right. It is Oscar winning after all.
