It's Official: Warner Bros. Hired Gunn As 'Suicide Squad' Writer

Confirmed in a sort of offhand way…

Source: DC Officially Confirms James Gunn Writing 'Suicide Squad 2'

Word on the street yesterday was that former  Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn moved over to the Distinguished Competition to write, and possibly direct, the Suicide Squad cinematic follow up. Well, it didn't take that long, but it has been confirmed that Warner Bros. has hired Gunn to write the next Suicide Squad movie.

Despite the commotion this stirred up among genre fans, it wasn't a big celebratory roll out of Gunn for DC/WB fans though. Aside from a few websites saying WB confirmed the hire, the news was officially revealed by a few lines in the daily DC Daily new webseries:

"It's official that we have got a new member of the DC family: acclaimed writer/director James Gunn has been attached to write Suicide Squad 2"


The video also mentioned that Gunn will be bringing a "fresh take" to the property, making it seem that things will be very different from the first film.


A release date hasn't been announced for the Suicide Squad sequel. Note that Gunn hasn't been announced as the director of the film… yet.
