Ousted Guardians of the Galaxy director switches camps, tied to new DC Comics film

If you've been keeping up to date with this story, we are sure you're aware that James Gunn was sacked as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3.

James Gunn has closed a deal to write Suicide Squad 2 and will possibly direct as well, sources say. The big question here is whether the cast of Ayer's Suicide Squad - namely Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jared Leto as the Joker - will be in the Gunn-penned Suicide Squad film.

Warner has been looking for somebody to take control of the new Suicide Squad flick, taking a look at original director David Ayer, Mel Gibson, Daniel Espinosa, and others.

In the world of comic book movies, this is super indeed: James Gunn, who was sacked from Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy movies after old offensive tweets of his resurfaced, may be jumping to DC to work on the next Suicide Squad movie, io9 reported Tuesday. It is possible that it could be a continuation of the franchise with a new cast of incarcerated supervillains. O'Connor was previously attached to the sequel pic, but eventually dropped out to work on The Has-Been, a Ben Affleck-led drama written by Brad Ingelsby, for Warner Bros. Bautista, who plays Drax, said he would ask Disney to release him from his "Guardians 3" contract if they didn't at least use James Gunn's script.

There is now no release date for Suicide Squad 2.


At Disney, Gunn helmed both Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

Shortly after news of Gunn's departure from the Guardians franchise broke, the now-controversial filmmaker issued a statement with regard to his online actions that had occured several years prior to Disney asking him to construct the journey of Marvel's favorite space-faring a-holes.

Suicide Squad 2 has suffered many setbacks since it was initially announced.

The Suicide Squad job is the first Gunn has taken since departing Guardians, for which he had been expected to make a third film.
