Ousted Guardians of the Galaxy director switches camps, tied to new DC Comics film

Warner Bros. just hired ex-Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn to write - and possibly direct - its Suicide Squad sequel.

The Marvel to DC move comes after Gunn was sacked by Disney - just months before filming started on his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 - after controversial tweets he made between 2009 and 2012 were found and shared by conservative provocateurs in an effort to discredit Gunn.

TheWrap dropped the bombshell on Tuesday, adding that Gunn will have a "completely new take on the property".

Gunn was dismissed from writing/directing Guardians of the Galaxy 3 earlier this year after a concentrated online campaigned publicized a series of tasteless jokes he made years ago about rape and pedophilia on Twitter. O'Connor was previously attached to the sequel pic, but eventually dropped out to work on The Has-Been, a Ben Affleck-led drama written by Brad Ingelsby, for Warner Bros.

Ayer was originally set to direct Gotham City Sirens, which seems to have gone by the wayside, and to chip in on Suicide Squad 2, which was greenlit nearly immediately after the first movie overperformed box office expectations despite poor reviews.

The cast of Guardians Of The Galaxy have defended Gunn since the tweets were unearthed. 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. 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.

Suicide Squad 2 has suffered many setbacks since it was initially announced.

Ayer is likely preoccupied working on Bright 2, which follows up the Netflix feature film starring Suicide Squad veteran Will Smith. Nothing but originality from this guy. As of right now, it sounds like they'll be using his script, but they have yet to find a director.
