Ousted Guardians of the Galaxy director switches camps, tied to new DC Comics film

James Gunn to Write & Possibly Direct New Suicide Squad Movie

Warner has been looking for somebody to take control of the new Suicide Squad flick, taking a look at original director David Ayer, Mel Gibson, Daniel Espinosa, and others.

As Gunn wrote the screenplays for both the first and second installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy films it'll be interesting to see what he brings to Marvel's rivals as he is considered to be a major steal from the company.

Months after Disney suddenly fired the Guardians of the Galaxy director in light of old, disturbing tweets resurfacing, Gunn is reportedly heading to the world of the DCEU.

The first Suicide Squad film, which was released in 2016 and directed by David Ayer, received mixed reviews, but did earn almost $750 million worldwide - massive in comparison to its $175 million budget, before promotion and advertising.

Rick Scott expanded a state of emergency declaration Tuesday to include 35 counties in preparation for the storm. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency on Tuesday for 92 counties in his state.


James Gunn has found his footing in Hollywood again. The Guardians of the Galaxy cast came to Gunn's support, but apparently to no avail.

With Suicide Squad, Gunn has a chance to work a similar magic as he did on Guardians.

This is, in other words, possibly big news for Warner Bros., whose superhero films are for obvious reasons in direct and perpetual competition with Marvel and Disney's.

And Suicide Squad, unlike Guardians, was considered a total critical disappointment. According to Deadline, he's already signed on to write the script.

They can still say Drax is in the third movie - he's just invisible.

io9's report includes phrases like "reportedly", which suggests that the outlet may have cobbled together enough inside info about the pending Gunn deal to elicit a clear response from Warner Bros.
