After being sacked by Marvel, James Gunn now looks set to write Suicide Squad 2 for DC
The saga continues...
If you've been keeping up to date with this story, we are sure you're aware that James Gunn was fired as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3.
Gunn was sacked following the uncovering of a number of vulgar tweets that he posted in jest. Some of the tweets were from as early as 2008.
Since then, there has been a number of theories suggesting that he may return to Guardians, and others suggesting he was done with it for good.
But as developments go, this most recent piece of news is a big one.
Gunn is currently in talks with DC to tackle the sequel to Suicide Squad.
According to Hollywood Reporter he has already agreed to write the script for the movie, with a potential deal that would include him directing it too.
It wouldn't be the first time that someone made the switch from Marvel to DC either...
Patty Jenkins left Marvel following creative differences regarding Thor 2, and went on to make Wonder Woman, and Josh Whedon did something similar when he took over Justice League.
The first Suicide Squad was fairly slated by critics, but it did gross nearly $750 million worldwide on a $175 million budget.
