THE SUICIDE SQUAD Director James Gunn Has More DC Projects Planned According To Walter Hamada
It doesn't sound like The Suicide Squad director James Gunn has any intention of parting ways with the DCEU once Peacemaker hits our screens. Walter Hamada has confirmed that there's "more stuff planned."
The Suicide Squad marks Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn's first trip to the DC Films Universe, but it won't be his last. We know a Peacemaker spinoff is on the way to HBO Max, and from the sounds of things, Gunn will be returning for more adventures in this shared world at some point in the future.
The filmmaker will soon be returning to the MCU for GOTG Vol. 3, but while speaking to THR, DC Films president Walter Hamada confirmed that Gunn and DC will be reteaming before too long.
“Gunn is always welcome back, whatever he wants to do. He really has a vision and he’s a great partner with us. Whenever he wants to come back, we’re ready for him,” said Hamada. “He’ll be back. We have more stuff planned.”
What could that "stuff" be? Another Suicide Squad movie is certainly possible (depending on how this one performs, of course), but Gunn did reveal that Warner Bros. basically offered him his choice of projects when he made the jump from Marvel, so it's probably safe to assume that the director has options.
What do you guys think? Any particular DC characters you'd like to see James Gunn tackle next?
