Ousted Guardians of the Galaxy director switches camps, tied to new DC Comics film

He was sacked from Guardians 3 in July after old tweets emerged, where he appeared to joke about paedophilia and rape.

Which is exactly what is happening as Polygon reports that James Gunn has been hired to write the script for Suicide Squad 2 along with the chance of possibly directing as well.

Shortly after news of Gunn's hiring surfaced, Bautista took to Twitter to offer a ringing endorsement, writing, "Where do I sign up!".

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. The cast issued a statement of support for their writer-director, imploring Disney to reinstate him.

Suicide Squad, like Guardians, was a superhero team-up movie with an ensemble cast of less-than-heroic characters.

Princess Eugenie's wedding day weather forecast is rainy
Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, had the same number of bridesmaids , while Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge only had four. Supporting Eugenie will be her elder sister, Princess Beatrice , who has been chosen to be her Maid of Honour .

Regarding Guardians of the Galaxy 3, it is presently on permanent hold, and Disney has yet to announce a replacement director and release date.

Gunn was ditched from the Guardians of the Galaxy series over a series of offensive old tweets, which he insisted do not reflect his attitudes today.

Joss Whedon - who directed the first two Avengers films - made a similar move, although in very different circumstances.

Whether or not Gunn pens the script and directs the film, the new deal with Warner Bros.is Gunn's first project since leaving Disney/Marvel Studio. Gunn responded with a lengthy apology on his social media. In comments he posted following his firing from Disney, Gunn himself wrote: "My words of almost a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative". Let's just say, it.did not work as well as Gunn's curated approach to music in the Guardians movies, and leave it at that. The first Guardians grossed $773 million and the sequel grossed $863 million.
