DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

And Suicide Squad, unlike Guardians, was considered a total critical disappointment.

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.

Upon news of his firing, fans immediately called on Warner Bros. and DC to recruit the director, and now that it's happened, most seem pleased with his first project. According to the outlet, O'Connor is now set to direct Ben Affleck in the film Torrance.

- Black Zero (@superwonderdc) October 9, 2018I will not be excited for a Suicide Squad 2 under James Gun. Our first-blush thought is a one-word "duh", as Gunn's propensity for dark, profane humor and redemption seems like a flawless fit for DC Comics' most blatant anti-hero collection of bad-guys-gone-good. Gavin O' Connor is more than capable of handling this movie.

James Gunn has found his footing in Hollywood again.

The film adaptation of Suicide Squad was already a bit of a Guardians of the Galaxy knock-off: you have a ragtag team full of scoundrels, banding together as unlikely friends to defeat a more powerful evil, all while classic songs play in the background.


- John Squires (@FreddyInSpace) October 9, 2018Suicide Squad 2 Yay! That's a lot of wasted effort on the sequel, but one that is necessary a the studio will want to go in a completely different direction now and hopefully Gunn can provide this for him.

Warner has been looking for somebody to take control of the new Suicide Squad flick, taking a look at original director David Ayer, Mel Gibson, Daniel Espinosa, and others.

That would obviously require a odd casting and while you'd probably prefer someone with a little more thespian experience behind them than Bautista, but he makes it here as a suggestion based exclusively on the modern design of the character.

- 3NegroNerds (@3BlackGeeks) October 9, 2018I'll just say my interest in Suicide Squad 2 has increased following this news.

What do you think about this news?

As you'll probably remember, the director of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy series was sacked from the franchise's third installment back in July.
