DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

Gunn's new gig comes after he was sacked in July from directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 over old tweets from years ago in which he joked about rape and pedophilia.

While everyone certainly had their own thoughts on the subject, one of DC's Suicide Squad writers felt that Gunn's work on Guardians of the Galaxy made him a ideal fit for the team of DC villains. That's a lot of wasted effort on the sequel, but one that is necessary a the studio will want to go in a completely different direction now and hopefully Gunn can provide this for him. By comparison, Suicide Squad appeared to have been edited with a hatchet, with wildly different tones from scene-to-scene, a Harley Quinn and Joker arc that seemed like it had been abandoned midway through the film, and a boring, sky-portal climax that seemed out of place with the team's '80s action movie (and hyper-violent) roots. The film was written and directed by David Ayer in a story of imprisoned supervillains executing black ops missions to save the world in exchange for reduced sentences.

Taking to Twitter, he shared an article announcing Gunn's new role and wrote: "Where do I sign up!".

Additionally, you will have the option to display your old ID so that friends can become accustomed to the change. Here's the kicker, because with Sony there usually is one: the name change won't actually work for every game .

You may recall that Suicide Squad 2 has had a pretty turbulent road thus far.

Now Deadline reports that Warner Bros.is hiring Gunn to write for the (vastly inferior) D.C. cinematic universe.

The creative force between the two hugely popular Guardians films, Gunn's firing prompted its own backlash.

'We Have a Good, But Not Great, Flu Vaccine'
Check with your physician, your county health department, or use the department's Flu Shot Locator to schedule your flu vaccine. And while it seems like flu season is still a month or two away, some cases of the flu have already been reported in Minnesota.

Now with Gunn in the mix, it looks like O'Connor is off the project entirely.

- 3NegroNerds (@3BlackGeeks) October 9, 2018I'll just say my interest in Suicide Squad 2 has increased following this news.

No news has been issued on the Guardians threequel, although it is assumed that production on it is indefinitely delayed until a new director is hired. Nothing but originality from this guy. Maybe, Gunn can improve the series in his sequel.

Brett Kavanaugh hears first arguments as Supreme Court justice
Kavanaugh also noted the first group of clerks he's hired as a justice are all women, a first in the history of the Supreme Court. That's a sign that at least on the House side, the Kavanaugh fights may have had a negligible effect on the overall battle.

Gunn's Guardians films were well-reviewed, but that didn't save his job when the old tweets, which were sent between 2008 and 2012, were made public.
