Ever since it was announced that James Gunn, he of the very successful Guardians of the Galaxy films, was working on the script to the follow up to DC’s successful and somewhat polarizing Suicide Squad, it was wondered if he might direct the film as well.
The answer to that question might be yes as Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Gunn’s representatives are indeed talking to Warner Bros. about directing this new version of Suicide Squad, which at this time is called The Suicide Squad. This would be good news to those who thought Gunn got a raw deal with his outing from Marvel over some old tweets that surfaced.
Gunn is thought to be taking the film in a different direction with a new cast and different characters. As of this moment, Suicide Squad 2 is tentatively scheduled for an August 2021 release. Do you think the hiring of Gunn is a good move? One thing is for certain, he has experience making successful films in the genre. Share your thoughts with us at GVNation.
