THE SUICIDE SQUAD: James Gunn Says The Movie Is Finished; Praises WB For Being "Creatively Amazing"

The Suicide Squad director James Gunn has confirmed that his upcoming DC Comics sequel/reboot is "fully finished," while praising Warner Bros. for allowing him to complete the movie without interfering.

It's fair to say Warner Bros. has gained a bit of a reputation for "studio interference" over the years (you'll find Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan's recent thoughts on the matter here), which has resulted in some filmmakers' original takes on certain properties being changed, if not outright compromised.

When Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn signed on to helm The Suicide Squad, fans were concerned that he may not be given the creative freedom to fully realize his vision for Task Force X, but it doesn't sound like he ran into many problems in that regard.

While responding to a question via Twitter, Gunn confirmed that The Suicide Squad is now "fully finished and cut," while praising WB for allowing him to complete the film his way with little to no meddling.

Based on everything we've seen and heard so far, Gunn is not simply towing the studio line here. His Suicide Squad "requel" will be R-rated, and several members of the cast have promised that we're in for a wild, insane ride.

We'll find out for ourselves when the movie premieres in theatres and on HBO Max on August 6. For now, you can check out a revealing new synopsis right here.
