Ben Affleck Signs For New Movie With Gavin O'Connor

  • James Gunn to Write & Possibly Direct New Suicide Squad Movie

Also, according to i09, Gunn has plans to take this next Suicide Squad movie in a new direction, which is probably a good idea since, as discussed, the last one stank up the place.

Gavin O'Connor (The Accountant) had previously been announced to direct and he was expected to co-write the script with Todd Stashwick. The first film, written and directed by David Ayer, earned $747 million in 2016 but drew withering reviews.

This is Gunn's first assignment since Disney removed him from the money-spinning Guardians franchise.

We should reiterate that, at the moment, Gunn has only been hired to write the next Suicide Squad.

A "completely new take" could see a shaking-up of the supervillain squad roster, so perhaps moviegoers will get to see characters like Doctor Light, Nightshade, or Bronze Tiger in Suicide Squad 2. The wrestler-turned-actor has been continuously supporting Gunn throughout the Marvel vs James Gunn controversy. But it also looked like O'Connor was moving on to reteam with Ben Affleck on the sports drama The Has-Been.

'What are we, some kinda suicide squad reboot?'

While Rosenbaum wasn't a major member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he had a brief appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, teasing a potential return in a future film.

The Marvel to DC move comes after Gunn was sacked by Disney - just months before filming started on his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 - after controversial tweets he made between 2009 and 2012 were found and shared by conservative provocateurs in an effort to discredit Gunn. Nothing but originality from this guy.

What are your thoughts about DC hiring Gunn for the SUICIDE SQUAD sequel? The former WWE star has been working with Gunn on the Guardians movies and when the news broke of his Suicide Squad involvement, Bautista doubled-down on his Disney protest by publicly asking where he could sign up. 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.
