Thor: Ragnarok Waititi Chris Hemsworth

Actors jumping between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe isn’t anything out of the ordinary.

Now, another filmmaker and actor has joined him, but just for a starring role.

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi is said to be joining the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy director Gunn’s DC project The Suicide Squad, where he will appear alongside the likes of returning stars from the first movie such as Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, and Viola Davis.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Dave Bautista was among the first of the Guardians of the Galaxy cast to voice his frustrations over Disney and Marvel Studios’ decision to fire James Gunn over offensive tweets that were made a decade ago. Bautista went as far as threatening to walk out of the final film entirely if the two studios did not rehire Gunn. Ultimately, they never found a replacement, and eventually they rehired Gunn.

Though it has taken some time, Bautista is now coming out to talk about his relationship with Disney and Marvel, along with his fierce loyalty to Gunn. Check it out below.

James Gunn

Last summer, James Gunn was in the midst of preparing for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the closing installment of the Guardians trilogy. What happened after that can only be described as a whirlwind of crazy. First he was fired by Disney for some old tweets that were dug up. Then he was hired by WB to write The Suicide Squad, which eventually led to him directing as well. Finally, he was rehired by Disney to finish the Guardians trilogy.

The filmmaker, who is usually vocal on social media, has been silent about those recent events. At least up until now. Gunn is now opening up about what has happened to him, how he thought he would never be rehired, and the status of both The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. See what he had to say below.

David Dastmalchian

It’s not unusual for James Gunn to include characters who might be considered misfits, outsiders, or troublemakers. That couldn’t have been truer in the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films. But now he is putting together a new cast of misfits in The Suicide Squad. The soft reboot will bring back Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller to reprise their respective characters. They will be joined by Idris Elba, who will reportedly play a new character and not be replacing Will Smith as Deadshot; and John Cena, who is said to be in negotiations for a role in the film as well.

Now there are reports that confirm David Dastmalchian and Daniela Melchior will be added. According to these reports, Dastmalchian will be playing Polka-Dot Man, while Melchior will play Ratcatcher. More on this below.
