Ben Affleck Signs For New Movie With Gavin O'Connor

Suicide Squad			Warner Bros

Seeing how Suicide Squad is abhorred while the Academy Award-nominated/losing Guardians films are celebrated, this move is overall odd and a bit confusing, but seeing how DC and WB also got the freaking Avengers director in an attempt to "fix" Justice League, it makes sense from the studio's perspective.

In an unusual film-news announcement, Warner Bros.

Warner Bros.is taking advantage of director James Gunn's ugly departure from Marvel Studios by hiring the filmmaker to write the script for Suicide Squad 2, The Wrap is reporting.

To many fans, it appeared as if Suicide Squad simply attempted to replicate the success of Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy, a film that also featured a band of merry criminals forging a bond through (cosmic) fire.

And Suicide Squad, unlike Guardians, was considered a total critical disappointment. Under Gunn's watch, the Guardians became household names nearly overnight.

According to eyewitnesses, unknown men arrived in two vehicles and parked at the hotel before Mr Dewji got there. News of the incident spread fast as social media users shared the development, sending shockwaves the country.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that "inside sources" claim that Gunn is now not wanting to develop a "sequel" to the franchise, rather, he will be creating a new take on the DC film entirely.

Throughout the ordeal, Gunn's girlfriend of three years - Sun Records actress Jennifer Holland - has remained by his side. What do you think about James Gunn's addition to Suicide Squad 2? "Gunn has closed a deal to pen the script".

Since then the disappointment of Justice League sent shockwaves through the DC brand, and Warner Bros. has been rapidly retooling their slate of superhero fare.

That movie's writer and director David Ayer had originally been lined up to also take on the sequel, but he dropped out around the same time his Netflix movie Bright was bashed with the critical bat.

Most intriguing is how From the Ashes was essentially a relaunch of the Suicide Squad comic franchise within DC Comics. And we bet there will be a catchy tune or two in there somewhere, as well.
