Ousted Guardians of the Galaxy director switches camps, tied to new DC Comics film

Ousted Guardians of the Galaxy director switches camps, tied to new DC Comics film

As Gunn wrote the screenplays for both the first and second installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy films it'll be interesting to see what he brings to Marvel's rivals as he is considered to be a major steal from the company.

The Marvel to DC move comes after Gunn was sacked by Disney - just months before filming started on his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 - after controversial tweets he made between 2009 and 2012 were found and shared by conservative provocateurs in an effort to discredit Gunn.

James Gunn is back, and poised to oversee a marquee franchise.

Suicide Squad, which starred Margot Robbie was a commercial success, despite being a critical failure. The film was written and directed by David Ayer in a story of imprisoned supervillains executing black ops missions to save the world in exchange for reduced sentences.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the filmmaker was contacted by DC Films and Warner Bros.to work on the sequel to Suicide Squad. Gunn's Suicide Squad could conceivably differ from Ayer's in terms of story alone, thereby employing numerous first film's same cast members and characters. Since Gunn's firing, the status of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 remains unclear.

No concrete evidence was produced to back up the searing accusations, which Republicans described as a dirty tricks campaign. Kavanaugh moved to the Supreme Court after spending 12 years as a judge on the influential U.S.

Ayer's return to the franchise was never on the table following the director's creative differences with the studio during the film's post-production process. As of right now, it sounds like they'll be using his script, but they have yet to find a director.

"My words of almost a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative", said Gunn.

They can still say Drax is in the third movie - he's just invisible.

Gunn gives Warner Bros. and DC Comics one of the most fan boy-approved voices in comic book films at a time when Warner Bros.is remaking much of its superhero operations.
