DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

10 October 2018, 03:27 | Elsie Buchanan

Gunn's Suicide Squad could conceivably differ from Ayer's in terms of story alone, thereby employing numerous first film's same cast members and characters. "Apparently, the writer/director "[will] have a completely new take on the property".

The most tantalizing news is a confirmation that Gunn is "in discussions to write, with an eye to direct", whatever Suicide Squad film comes next.

I've seen some baller moves in my day but man, DC grabbing James Gunn to write/maybe direct Suicide Squad 2, after Disney/Marvel stupidly kicked him to the curb, is one of the most baller moves I've ever witnessed.

Other performers include Jennifer Lopez , Mariah Carey , Cardi B , Camila Cabello , Shawn Mendes and Post Malone . The singer made her first awards show performance at the AMAs in three years with " I Did Something Bad ".

Earlier this year, director James Gunn revealed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 would be released in 2020.

The first film, written and directed by David Ayer, earned US$747 million in 2016 but drew withering reviews. Not to answer out of turn, but considering Warners made the trailer for the first film resemble a Guardians of the Galaxy film, it seems like a good fit. O'Connor had been hired to both write and direct the film and was hard at work on the project for the past year.

Suicide Squad, which starred Margot Robbie was a commercial success, despite being a critical failure.

China slashes bank reserve requirements amid trade war
Yields of China's 10-year central government bonds have been trending lower this year, standing at 3.633 per cent on Monday. At present, the interest rate on China's benchmark bond is about 60 basis points higher than on the USA one.

Back in July Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn confirmed Gunn's firing in a statement that said: "The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James" Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio's values and we have severed our business relationship with him'. Maybe, Gunn can improve the series in his sequel.

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.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Gunn "has closed a deal to pen the script but, at this stage, there is no director deal".
