James Gunn set to write and direct ‘Suicide Squad 2,’ may not be a sequel

In a post-Marvel era director James Gunn appears to be primed to go from helming the Guardians of the Galaxy to writing and directing Suicide Squad 2.

The Accountant director Gavin O’Connor had been previously been announced as the writer-director on the sequel, but things have changed. The Wrap reports that Gunn, the man behind Guardians and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, is in talks to takeover the follow-up to the 2016 anti-superhero film.

Suicide Squad director David Ayer originally expressed interest in helming an R-rated follow-up to the film, something Warner Bros. apparently didn’t appear to be interesting in doing. Suicide Squad 2 was put on hold so O’Connor could explore other projects.

Gunn exit from Marvel and Disney’s empire divided fans and created a ton of anxiety of politics, free speech and the effects of social media.

“Being told that Gunn’s SUICIDE SQUAD will not be a sequel, he will have a whole new take on it. But whether that means a total recasting or not is unclear.” – @borys_kit

While that may be true, the cast was NOT nearly the problem as the lame villain and bland script.

Suicide Squad starred Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, and Cara Delevingne.

The Suicide Squad is a team of super villains assembled to save the world. The film was panned by critics, but it made money – $750 million worldwide on a $175 million budget.
