DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

Suicide Squad was a huge hit for DC and established Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, who will appear in Birds of Prey as a main character.

With Gunn on board, the filmmaker is expected to deliver a completely new take on DC's ragtag group of ne'er do wells, as they continue to fight for their lives while working for Amanda Waller, a ruthless strategist who uses the comic company's "worst of the worst" to carry out unsafe missions that other outfits are otherwise too green to handle on their own.

We don't want James Gunn near any DC movie, especially Suicide Squad 2.

According toThe Hollywood Reporter, the 52-year-old director has struck a deal with Warner Bros to write Suicide Squad sequel and will possibly direct as well.

Disney refused to U-turn on his dismissal despite pressure from stars including, most prominently, Bautista - and now that Gunn has joined Suicide Squad 2, it seems he wants to jump ship. He will presumably still work with Warner Bros. on the sequel to Ben Affleck's The Accountant if that gets off the ground.

Taking to Twitter, he shared an article announcing Gunn's new role and wrote: "Where do I sign up!"

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.

Bautista has been a very vocal defender of Gunn since his removal from Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3. What Gunn did with Guardians had a ripple effect on the whole of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, influencing how filmmakers approached their projects in the years following Vol. 1's release.

The director was sacked from the Disney franchise of films after tweets from years ago saw revealed jokes in poor taste, concerning rape and pedophilia - since then, Gunn has apologised and said he had grown as a person in the years since the jokes. Nothing but originality from this guy.

The film adaptation of Suicide Squad was already a bit of a Guardians of the Galaxy knock-off: you have a ragtag team full of scoundrels, banding together as unlikely friends to defeat a more powerful evil, all while classic songs play in the background.
