James Gunn director of Guardians of the Galaxy

James Gunn is ready for a comeback. The former Guardians of the Galaxy director who was fired by Disney for years old tweets that were unearthed by an ultra-conservative group has found a new gig at Warner Bros.

Gunn will now be writing a script for a Suicide Squad film. That’s right, according to new reports, this won’t be a sequel but rather a new take on the ensemble of criminals looking for shorter prison sentences. More on the report below.

Suicide Squad Jared Leto as The Joker header image

It’s no surprise that Jared Leto‘s Joker in Suicide Squad was one of the most interesting takes on the character. It wasn’t like the comic books or the dark and grungy Joker. And that is one thing you have to respect in David Ayer’s film. But it also wasn’t a well-received character.

That being said, he is a part of the DCEU now. And for those who have been dying to know if he would get his own film, well, the studio has answered that question. New reports are saying WB is putting a Joker movie into development with Leto starring and executive producing. More on the story below.

Jaume Collet-Serra Top Choice To Direct Suicide Squad 2

Ever since David Ayer opted to take the reins on Gotham City Sirens in lieu of the sequel to his 2016 comic book action blockbuster Suicide Squad, it looked like Task Force X would require a new commander to call the shots on their next big adventure if the DC Films sequel was to be ready in time for its undated 2019 release.

The search for Suicide Squad 2‘s new director has not yet ended, but the current front-runner for the job is now Jaume Collet-Serra. Best known for making modestly budgeted action and horror hits like Non-Stop and The Shallows, Collet-Serra has seized the top contender position from Mel Gibson. Previous candidates also included Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Daniel Espinosa (Life), and Blade: Trinity director David Goyer.

WB DC films Justice League team first look

Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe got off to a rocky start. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad has given the vast majority the confidence the franchise needs to believe that it can compete with Marvel Studios. Still, early reactions to Wonder Woman have given us some assurance that there can be a decent DCEU film. James Wan is behind the lens for Aquaman. And despite some of the creative fallout, The Batman seems to be headed in the right direction now that Matt Reeves is the director.

Now there is word that Warner Bros. wants to start shooting a DC film this year. With The Batman set for a possible 2018 shoot, the rumor is that the studio has narrowed it down to five possible choices. Check out which film it could be here below.

Yes, Suicide Squad was one of the most polarizing films of 2016, but its box office success was enough to warrant the obvious sequel. But with writer and director David Ayer moving on to helm Gotham City Sirens, Suicide Squad 2 is in need of a writer and director.

There is a rumor that the studio is eyeing Mel Gibson to direct, though we have yet to hear about it from either party. However, there is confirmation that The Legend of Tarzan scribe Adam Cozad is in talks to pen the script. Yeah, the sequel doesn’t sound promising, at all. More on the story below.

David Ayer Admits He Should Have Done ‘Suicide Squad’ Differently

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto

Suicide Squad may not be the most popular film amongst critics and some fans, but it was one of the top-grossing films of last year. Warner Bros. third entry of the DC Extended Universe was polarizing in more ways than one. The loyal fanbase supported the film even though critics eviscerated it for having too many plotholes and a lack of character motivation. But if there is one thing that Suicide Squad suffered from the most, it’s the fact that the marketing campaign failed to deliver its promise on giving us the Joker (Jared Leto). Sure the Clown Price of Crime was in the film, but trailers and TV spots had assured us he would be a vital plot point. Instead, he was an unnecessary factor. Even Leto voiced his displeasure saying that he shot enough footage for a Joker movie. The extended edition supports that fact.
