A Familiar Face Wants To Jump On Board With James Gunn When He Takes Over ‘Suicide Squad 2’

Without diving into the details, as everyone has already heard and had their conversations about the situation, there has been quite a bit of controversy and discussion about James Gunn and Marvel/Disney’s split. It has caused a major shift Marvel Studio’s plans for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and from all accounts, the relationship between at least one of the actors in the Guardians of the Galaxy family, Dave Bautista, and Marvel Studios’ parent company is rocky, to say the least. Now, as new news breaks about James Gunn’s future, Bautista is once again in the middle of the conversation.




The Wrap is reporting that James Gunn is in talks to write the script for the Warner Bros./DC Films’ upcoming production of Suicide Squad 2. All drama and controversy aside, as we saw with Guardians Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, it’s a huge grab for DC, especially considering their competition with Marvel. Whether or not that competition is simply perceived or real doesn’t actually matter, this will certainly be painted in that narrative. There is also word that he’s not only in talks to write, but they may have him direct the film as well. After news broke, Dave Bautista wasted no time in sharing his excitement and interest in the project…



Whether or not you agree with Disney’s decision to fire Gunn, there’s no denying the man’s talent as both a writer and director. He was able to take a relatively unknown team from Marvel Comics and shape them into the biggest film franchises in the world. A lot of that credit can also go to the cast as well, and Dave Bautista has been excellent in the role of Drax the Destroyer. His unhappiness with the way things have played out is well documented, but we can’t help but think that he would be a great addition to a Suicide Squad sequel. While the first Suicide Squad wasn’t the best-received comicbook film in history, it did do pretty well in its own right, and having Gunn behind the camera could push the sequel over the top.
