James Gunn recently took to Instagram to explain how he’s doing both The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
“How can James Gunn juggle both Marvel and DC movies?” you may wonder. However, the answer is a lot less complex than you’d think. Warner Bros. took advantage of James Gunn having an opening in his schedule due to corporate drama over Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and then Disney agreed to hire him back after he’d finished work on The Suicide Squad. Simple as that!
Check out James Gunn’s Instagram response below.
As it stands, James Gunn is likely to keep making more comic book movies past both The Suicide Squad (which just started filming in the past month) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (which has a completed script that will need some changes to account for The Eternals and Thor: Love and Thunder now preceding it in terms of release order). That being said, James Gunn has also noted that he’s not making plans anytime soon, and he has also stated that the third Guardians will be his last movie in that series.
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a dangerous black ops mission in exchange for reduced sentences. The sequel will see the return of four cast members from that film –Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag.
James Gunn is expected to deliver on the fresh take on the supervillain team in his upcoming movie, with Idris Elba playing a new character on the team, David Dastmalchian starring as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, and Steve Agee voicing King Shark. Other cast members confirmed for the ensemble picture include John Cena, Storm Reid, Flula Borg, Nathan Fillion, Taika Waititi, Peter Capaldi, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Mayling Ng, Jennifer Holland, Pete Davidson, Juan Diego Botto, Alice Braga, Tinashe Kajese, Julio Ruiz, and Joaquín Cosío.
James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad will be released in theaters on August 6, 2021. Stay tuned to us for the latest news regarding James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and The Suicide Squad.
