Guardians of the Galaxy actor Sean Gunn is unsure if he’ll be appearing in James Gunn’s upcoming movie The Suicide Squad.
Sean Gunn plays Kraglin in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy and it’s sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. That isn’t Sean Gunn’s only role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe though. The actor also played the on-set substitute for the CGI-character Rocket Raccoon in both Guardians of the Galaxy films, as well as the two most recent Avengers films, Infinity War and Endgame.
James Gunn was removed as director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 last summer, following the resurgence of a series of controversial social media posts that the director made years prior. Since then, James Gunn has been hired to write and direct the upcoming DC Extended Universe film The Suicide Squad. To the excitement of many Marvel fans, he has also been re-hired as writer/director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which will head into production when James Gunn is done with The Suicide Squad.
The Suicide Squad is slated for release in 2021 and according to Sean Gunn, he has yet to find out if he’ll be making an appearance in the film. This is what the actor had to say about the topic during a recent interview with ComicBook.com.
“You know, I have no idea.”
Although he isn’t sure if he’ll appear in the film yet, Sean Gunn is definitely up for appearing in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
“I’m always willing to do anything he [James] needs me to do. I’m also very, very respectful of the creative process from the point of view of the people who are writing and coming up with the story. I’ve been in the business long enough to know that story is king.”
Sean Gunn explained why he’d rather have James Gunn worry about The Suicide Squad‘s story and not fitting him into it.
“You know, in order for the movie to be good, the story has to be great, and it’s hard to make a great story if you’re thinking, ‘Hmm, I have to work this person in there somewhere.'”
The actor further discussed why he’s so respectful of James Gunn’s creative process.
“So I just let him do his thing. If he has a role for me, to let me know and I’ll do it. And if he doesn’t, I have no doubt that it’s because he’s serving a different kind of story where there is not a role for me and I’m totally respectful of that too.”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to star Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Sean Gunn.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
