James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad will be a soft reboot. Some of the cast from the original like Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller will return to reprise their respective roles. Others like Idris Elba will play new characters that were never before seen in a DCEU franchise.

Now, Task Force X might be adding some more muscle to the group. Literally. According to new reports, John Cena is in talks to join the team. More on the report below.

The Dark Tower Idris Elba as Roland Deschain

The fact that we are getting James Gunn films from both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DCEU is a gift. After the director was fired by Disney on their third Guardian of the Galaxy film – but before he was subsequently reinstated – Gunn was brought in to write and direct The Suicide Squad. The new film, which was considered to be a soft reboot at the time, is not loosely using the term, as characters and actors from David Ayer‘s original film are returning. Jai Courtney will be back to play Captain Boomerang, and now Viola Davis will return as Amanda Waller.

However, Idris Elba, who was tapped to replace Will Smith as Deadshot, is no longer being considered for the role of the assassin with deadly accuracy. More on the report here below.

Captain Boomerang

Before James Gunn can sail through space with the Guardians of the Galaxy for the third time, he’s going to be directing a different kind of misfits in the DC Extended Universe film The Suicide Squad. And though the film is being considered a reboot, with actors like the departing Will Smith being replaced by Idris Elba as Deadshot and other actors like Margot Robbie being rumored to return, it looks like the filmmaker will be mixing in some memorable rogues with very obscure criminals.

According to new reports, Jai Courtney is said be coming back to play as Captain Boomerang. At least that’s what he’s telling us. Find out what he had to say about his “return” below.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Team

Eight months after Disney fired James Gunn over decade-old distasteful tweets, the studio has reversed its decision and has officially reinstated the filmmaker as the director of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3.

Deadline says Gunn will still continue to work on The Suicide Squad before moving on to Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3, a film, which was supposed to start production earlier this year. The next sequel would have ushered in Phase 4 of the MCU, something that we are still unclear about.

The Dark Tower

It looks like Deadshot will be coming back for Suicide Squad 2, which is now going by the title The Suicide Squad. Just not the Deadshot you know. Will Smith, who was the first to play Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot, was forced to exit the role because of scheduling conflicts. But it didn’t take too long for Warner Bros. to find his replacement. According to new reports, the studio is eyeing Idris Elba to play the role of the sharp shooting assassin.

Not only that, Warner Bros. is “barreling towards the casting process,” as the studio is loving what screenwriter James Gunn has turned in. More on the report below.

Brightburn Trailer

Sony Pictures Entertainment has released a new trailer for Brightburn, a superhero horror flick.

The movie comes from producer James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Slither), and offers a twisted take on the superhero tale. It tells a Superman-like story of a young boy with super powers from another planet who ends up on Earth. But as he discovers his special gifts, he passes up the opportunity to do good with them and instead opts for very dark deeds.

You can find more info on Brightburn and check out the new trailer below.

Will Smith Exits ‘Suicide Squad 2’ Due To Scheduling Conflicts

Will Smith

Sorry folks, it looks like you won’t be seeing Floyd Lawton take another contract in Suicide Squad 2. Will Smith, who introduced us to the cinematic version of the character, won’t be coming back. While the script was one of the weakest parts of the first film, Deadshot himself was one of the best parts of the film.

Sure, we’ve seen some key actors stay and others leave before. But Smith is not leaving for the reasons that Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill (…maybe) exited. Scheduling conflicts contributed to this parting of ways. More on the report below.

Chris Pratt Says James Gunn’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’ Script Will Be Used

Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is in a state of limbo right now. The film, which was set to begin production this month for a 2021 release, has been put on an indefinite hold after Disney fired James Gunn for tasteless jokes he posted on Twitter over a decade ago. Even though the director has repeatedly apologized for these tweets, the studio felt that they could not be associated with anyone who made awful jokes and terminated their relationship despite him giving the studio two successful films and the keys to developing a comic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While Gunn is no longer working on the film, there are talks that his script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 could still be used. Sean Gunn, his brother, stated that it would be. And now Star Lord himself, Chris Pratt, is saying that it will be used, and that the script is “off the chain.” More on the report below.

James Gunn

After being fired as the director of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for highly controversial tweets that were made over a decade ago, James Gunn made a significant return to superhero movies by being hired by Warner Bros. to write the script for DC’s Suicide Squad 2 this past October.

The script he was writing wouldn’t be considered a true sequel but rather a soft relaunch of the franchise, so the title has been changed to The Suicide Squad. Now, he’s making the move to direct the film as well. More on the report below.
