According to The Hollywood Reporter, the filmmaker was contacted by DC Films and Warner Bros.to work on the sequel to Suicide Squad. Pictures. The studio has confirmed previously unconfirmed reports by io9, The Wrap, and Deadline that Gunn, whom Disney had fired from the third Guardians production over controversial tweets that had resurfaced, would be writing - and possibly directing - a followup to 2016's Suicide Squad.

Yet Bautista also posted several messages of support for Gunn, sharing a video criticising Alt-Right personality Mike Cernovich, who reported first dug up Gunn's old tweets.

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.

Of course, this comes months after Gunn was sacked from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for comments he made on Twitter several years back.

Californians from Los Angeles to Sacramento - more than 547 kilometres from the launch site - also posted their confusion. Some of the visuals came from the launch itself, which put an Argentinian Earth-observation satellite into orbit.

Looks like James Gunn might be switching from Marvel to DC.

The new Suicide Squad movie is going to be produced by Peter Safran who is famously known for producing films from the highly-successful Conjuringfilm franchise, including the 2018 film The Nun. Despite an outcry from fans (as well as members of the cast), Disney's decision was final, and Gunn was sacked out of the airlock into the cold vacuum of space.

"I think it's an incredibly fearless and smart move by the studio".

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. We are left to wonder what happened to the Suicide Squad 2 that WB hired The Accountant director Gavin O'Connor for, but I seriously doubt anyone will miss that project.
