DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

- Black Zero (@superwonderdc) October 9, 2018I will not be excited for a Suicide Squad 2 under James Gun.

Disney fired the two-time Grammy nominee in July after offensive tweets he wrote between 2008-2012 joking about rape, child abuse, and pedophilia resurfaced in the #MeToo movement. The first Suicide Squad movie notably tried to ape the success of Guardians Of The Galaxy in its marketing and with its soundtrack, taking a random selection of classic rock tunes and throwing them over scenes seemingly at random.

According to Variety film reporter Justin Kroll, there's another reason why O'Connor is no longer behind the helm: his story for Suicide Squad 2 apparently "ended up being nearly identical to the Birds of Prey story". 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. The film was previously going to be written and directed by Gavin O'Connor, but he has since moved on to other projects.

Then again, Gunn's fresh perspective on the DC IP might simply result in some quirky humor reminiscent of the wit found in the Guardians of the Galaxy duology.

io9's report includes phrases like "reportedly", which suggests that the outlet may have cobbled together enough inside info about the pending Gunn deal to elicit a clear response from Warner Bros.

In September, CEO Bob Iger told THR, "The James Gunn decision was brought to me as a unanimous decision of a variety of executives at the studio, and I supported it ..." Gunn is expected to take an entirely new approach, and potentially direct the new Suicide Squad instalment.

Ayer's return to the franchise was never on the table following the director's creative differences with the studio during the film's post-production process.
