James Gunn may no longer be working on Guardians of the Galaxy 3, but he’s landed on his feet and will be penning Suicide Squad 2.
Read on to get more details on James Gunn writing the upcoming Suicide Squad 2…
CelebNMovies247.com has learned that James Gunn will be writing the upcoming Suicide Squad 2 and possibly directing as well.
Warner Bros. revealed that the Guardians of the Galaxy helmsman is indeed “writing the next installment in the Suicide Squad franchise.”
Warner’s statement to Polygon didn’t specify if the movie will be a direct sequel to 2016’s critically panned but commercially successful Suicide Squad.
There is just one problem and that is the history between Jared Leto and James Gunn.
Speaking of casting, the tense history between Gunn and Jared Leto has led some to speculate that the former’s involvement in the DCEU could provoke the latter to step down from his role as the Joker.
This would likely mark a major change in the planned course for the saga, given Leto’s plans for future outings as the Clown Prince of Crime, but it’s pretty evident that this franchise is currently going through a period of transition and potential recasts, so we certainly can’t rule out this possibility, reports WGTC.
