In a surprising development for the increasingly-tumultuous career of James Gunn, the writer-director of Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy is jumping ship to DC Films with a new Suicide Squad film.
There is now no release date for Suicide Squad 2.
Of course, this comes months after Gunn was sacked from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for comments he made on Twitter several years back. Despite support from his cast members and fans, Disney chose not to rehire him, although his script for the third Guardians film will still reportedly be used.
The directing gig then passed on to Gavin O'Connor (The Accountant, Warrior), but according to IMDb, he has no less than SIX projects that he is now signed on to direct, and with Gunn coming on board as writer, it would make sense for him to take on directing duties, too.

The tweet, since deleted, had been widely shared, immediately casting Hanson as the poster boy for the #HimToo movement. "I've been working for years to support the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Society", he said. "He graduated #1 in boot camp".
Following Dave Bautista, now Michael Rosenbaum is apparently interested in a role for James Gunn's Suicide Squad 2.
With Suicide Squad, Gunn has a chance to work a similar magic as he did on Guardians.
Sony also announced today that its Gunn-produced project BrightBurn has been moved from November 30, 2018 to May 24, 2019 - a plum Memorial Day spot that seems to indicate the studio is optimistic about the movie.
Shortly after news of Gunn's departure from the Guardians franchise broke, the now-controversial filmmaker issued a statement with regard to his online actions that had occured several years prior to Disney asking him to construct the journey of Marvel's favorite space-faring a-holes.
