James Gunn reportedly attached to new Suicide Squad movie

  • Written by Destructoid

In a surprising development for the increasingly-tumultuous career of James Gunn, the writer-director of Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy is jumping ship to DC Films with a new Suicide Squad film. This comes after Gunn was fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after alt-right figures unearthed inappropriate and offensive old tweets from Gunn, who is reported to write and possibly direct this DC movie.

The news comes from The Wrap—according to the report, this proposed Suicide Squad movie will not be a direct sequel to David Ayers's 2016 Academy Award-winning attempt, but will rather be a "completely new take" on the property. Whether this constitutes some sort of reboot, recasting, or just some sort of standalone sequel is unclear at this point.
