Multiple reports indicate that former [easyazon_link identifier=”B00OBW0IUU” locale=”US” tag=”boundingintocomics-20″]Guardians of the Galaxy[/easyazon_link] director James Gunn will be helming a new Suicide Squad movie. Fans have mixed emotions about Gunn directing the film and they made sure their opinions were voiced.
There were plenty of people who were not happy to see Gunn back in the director’s chair after he had been fired from Disney after dozens or Tweets resurfaced involving child rape and pedophilia.
JESUS CHRIST WTF. AS IF THE FIRST ONE WASNT BAD ENOUGH NOW THEY HAVE PEDO-PARTY DUDE DIRECTING.

If James Gunn comes anywhere near Suicide Squad 2, I won’t be. Just making that clear now.

James Gunn is officially writing and may possibly direct Suicide Squad 2
— Niander Wallace (@Nation__7) October 9, 2018
Dear @wbpictures and @DCComics ,
We don’t want James Gunn near any DC movie, especially Suicide Squad 2. Gavin O’ Connor is more than capable of handling this movie. Please quit burning bridges with us, DC fans.

Others thought the move by DC to hire James Gunn was fantastic.
I’ve seen some baller moves in my day but man, DC grabbing James Gunn to write/maybe direct Suicide Squad 2, after Disney/Marvel stupidly kicked him to the curb, is one of the most baller moves I’ve ever witnessed.
Suicide Squad 2 just went from “why?” to “HOLY SHIT YES.”

If that news of James Gunn writing and directing Suicide Squad 2 is legit then things are definitely looking up for DC/WB. Good fit for that property honestly.

I’ll just say my interest in Suicide Squad 2 has increased following this news. pic.twitter.com/TlutQCNjAt

One person isn’t interested in another Suicide Squad movie at all.
if jesus h. christ himself rose from the grave (again) and was like “i have an urgent message that will change the course of all humanity, but i can only share it with the world by directing this superhero movie” i *still* wouldn’t have any time in my life for a SUICIDE SQUAD 2.

What do you think about this news? Are you in favor of Gunn writing and directing Suicide Squad or would you rather him stay very far away from the franchise?
