DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

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.

While everyone certainly had their own thoughts on the subject, one of DC's Suicide Squad writers felt that Gunn's work on Guardians of the Galaxy made him a flawless fit for the team of DC villains.

"Sign me up too", Rosenbaum replied, who happens to be a good friend to Gunn.

'What are we, some kinda suicide squad reboot?'

Taylor Swift sets new American Music Award record, urges people to vote
Jim Cooper running in their Senate and House races respectively. "Every award was voted on by the people", Swift said of the AMAs. She also condemned Republican senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn for her voting record on women's rights and equal marriage.

Suicide Squad, which was directed by David Ayer, has spawned the spinoff Birds of Prey, featuring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

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. 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. The studio is likely going to experiment with an R-rating for the upcoming Joker solo movie, so perhaps it'll give Gunn a chance to take the Suicide Squad to some even more mature places with this sequel. Are you in favor of Gunn writing and directing Suicide Squad or would you rather him stay very far away from the franchise?

- 3NegroNerds (@3BlackGeeks) October 9, 2018I'll just say my interest in Suicide Squad 2 has increased following this news. Nothing but originality from this guy.

To many fans, it appeared as if Suicide Squad simply attempted to replicate the success of Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy, a film that also featured a band of merry criminals forging a bond through (cosmic) fire. The publication writes that the directing gig could be decided once his script is complete.
