  • James Gunn

The wrestler-turned-actor took to Twitter and said "Where do I sign up!" when Gunn's new gig was announced. But when Gunn was sacked by Disney for offensive tweets that resurfaced, Bautista became a very vocal supporter of Gunn.

According to The Wrap, Gunn is in talks to write the script for Suicide Squad 2 and also direct it.

Shortly after news of Gunn's departure from the Guardians franchise broke, the now-controversial filmmaker issued a statement with regard to his online actions that had occured several years prior to Disney asking him to construct the journey of Marvel's favorite space-faring a-holes.

Following Disney's dismissal of Gunn, which happened just as San Diego Comic-Con was getting underway, his Guardians cast members all spoke out in favor of the director, imploring Disney to reconsider.

The creative force between the two hugely popular Guardians films, Gunn's firing prompted its own backlash. The comic book adaptation was written and directed by David Ayer for Warner Bros.

Once established, Batwoman will receive her own standalone series overseen by Greg Berlanti, and scripted by Caroline Dries . Though the iconic comic-book city has been mentioned time and time again in the Arrowverse , it never appeared on screen.

In comments he posted following his firing from Disney, Gunn himself wrote: "My words of almost a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative".

The Suicide Squad job is the first Gunn has taken since departing Guardians, for which he had been expected to make a third film.

'I have regretted them for many years since - not just because they were stupid, not at all amusing, wildly insensitive, and certainly not provocative like I had hoped, but also because they don't reflect the person I am today or have been for some time'. It seems he is among those who have been sidelined as part of Warner Bros.' reshufflings of the DC movie universe, but if that is the case, he is still on board for Gunn's take.

There is now no release date for Suicide Squad 2.
