GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY's James Gunn In Talks Write And Direct SUICIDE SQUAD 2...But It May Be A Reboot

Disney and Marvel Studios have chosen to sever ties with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn but Warner Bros. has now snapped the filmmaker up for Suicide Squad 2 with an eye to write and direct...

Ever since Disney fired James Gunn for offensive Tweets which were recently dug up from a number of years ago, fans have joked that Warner Bros. should snap him up for the DC Extended Universe. Well, it's happening! According to The Wrap and a number of other outlets, Warner Bros. has confirmed that the Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn is in talks to write Suicide Squad 2.

That's not all, though, because the studio is also eyeing him to direct the DC Comics adaptation and that's obviously going to be a gamechanger for the franchise. The first instalment was a success with someone like David Ayer at the helm, so the mind boggles at what someone as talented as Gunn will be able to do with characters like Harley Quinn and Deadshot (just imagine the epic soundtrack). 

Last we heard, Gavin O'Connor was set to direct Suicide Squad 2, while a number of different writers were said to be working on rejigging the screenplay. Warner Bros. is clearly confident with what Gunn can deliver, though, so they're going back to the drawing board for what you have to imagine will be a movie featuring the same characters but with a very different feel.
