Earlier this year, James Gunn was fired from directing Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after some inappropriate tweets surfaced, and since we fired Roseanne for it, we have to fire James Gunn for it as well (I guess that's the standard now, thanks?)
It was announced today that James Gunn is in negotiations to write and direct Suicide Squad 2. Which is DC's answer...to...Guardians of the Galaxy. Suicide Squad revolves around a gang of anti-heroes who fight crime and save the day. Sound familiar?
The hire could be a jolt in the arm to much maligned DC Cinematic Universe which has stumbled out of the gates and never quite recovered. Batista who plays Drax in the Guardians of the Galaxy series has already tweeted out his support for Gunn, asking where one would sign up to appear in that movie.
The DC vs. Marvel battle rages on!
