Now, the word is dropping that James Gunn is in talks to write Suicide Squad 2 for Warner Bros and DC, and is also being eyed to direct the property. Eager to scoop him up as soon as his exit was signed, sealed, and delivered, it appears that Gunn will now be lending his talents to the other half of the Big Two.

As of yet, no replacement director has been announced for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. According to Deadline, he'll bring "a completely new take on the property to Suicide Squad" which, despite Margot Robbie's ideal performance as Harley Quinn, is probably for the best.

TheWrap reported "three insiders" have said Gunn will introduce a whole new take to the superhero film franchise, which features some of DC's most famous villains, including Harley Quinn, The Joker, Deadshot, Enchantress and Killer Croc, among others. We are left to wonder what happened to the Suicide Squad 2 that WB hired The Accountant director Gavin O'Connor for, but I seriously doubt anyone will miss that project.

The cast of Guardians Of The Galaxy have defended Gunn since the tweets were unearthed. Not to answer out of turn, but considering Warners made the trailer for the first film resemble a Guardians of the Galaxy film, it seems like a good fit.

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.

Suicide Squad was released in 2016 and earned about $750 million worldwide.

The Suicide Squad job is the first Gunn has taken since departing Guardians, for which he had been expected to make a third film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Gunn "has closed a deal to pen the script but, at this stage, there is no director deal".
