Ben Affleck Signs For New Movie With Gavin O'Connor

Dave Bautista has heard the news about James Gunn and 'Suicide Squad 2'. And he wants

Gunn moving from Marvel to DC isn't exactly a surprise, but it sure happened quickly, and the project in question is perhaps the most flawless fit for his sensibilities: Suicide Squad 2. The report also uses clear language to indicate that Gunn is definitely writing a film but has not been so clearly tied to its directing duties.

In July, Gunn was sacking from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, after offensive tweets from a decade earlier were unearthed, following his criticism of US President Donald Trump. The comic book adaptation was written and directed by David Ayer for Warner Bros. Dave Bautista, who plays the literally minded alien Drax in those movies, was vocally supportive of Gunn in the aftermath of his firing from Disney, and sounded excited that his friend had scored a new gig. Despite its box office success, Suicide Squad was skewered by critics, who lamented the film's lack of cohesion.

The first Suicide Squad followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a risky black ops mission in exchange for reduced sentences. Still, I feel tempted to buy tickets already and they haven't even started working on the film. That said, we wouldn't be surprised if Gunn got a promotion, as Warner Bros. tries to make the most of him.

Throughout the ordeal, Gunn's girlfriend of three years - Sun Records actress Jennifer Holland - has remained by his side.

Hit movie: The Warner Bros. What do you think about James Gunn's addition to Suicide Squad 2?

The filmmaker has now been revealed as script writer for the second Suicide Squad installment, which is expected to see Will Smith and Margot Robbie reprise their roles. The film is listed as a sequel, so it does not sound like a reboot. Gunn, particularly if he ends up directing the film, has the chops to do the Suicide Squad justice, allowing them to have a whole lot of devilish fun while discovering, and earning, a sense of kinship.
