DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

James Gunn James Gunn to write Suicide Squad 2, possibly direct

After James Gunn was unceremoniously fired from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise due to old Tweets that, without question, were insensitive and out of line, many wondered what project Gunn would grab next.

Now he has to make Suicide Squad 2.

James Gunn may have been fired from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, but DC Comics will welcome him with open arms.

The creative force between the two hugely popular Guardians films, Gunn's firing prompted its own backlash. He was on board to make the third when he was sacked in July after a bad faith campaign against him resurfaced a series of old tweets in which he had joked about pedophilia, rape, and other ugly topics.

Io9 adds that Gunn will have "a completely new take on the property", so it's possible we could be looking at a new cast or a soft reboot of sorts that better situates Suicide Squad inside WB's new vision for the DCEU (less connectivity, stronger individual stories). Despite support from his cast members and fans, Disney chose not to rehire him, although his script for the third Guardians film will still reportedly be used.

Taking to Twitter, he shared an article announcing Gunn's new role and wrote: "Where do I sign up!" It seems he is among those who have been sidelined as part of Warner Bros.' reshufflings of the DC movie universe, but if that is the case, he is still on board for Gunn's take.

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.

If Gunn slides into the director's seat for Suicide Squad 2, he'll take over the spot that filmmaker Gavin O'Connor (Miracle, Warrior, The Accountant) once occupied.

Ayer welcomed Gunn aboard and wrote, "I think it's an incredibly fearless and smart move by the studio".
