Since Gunn is adding his own spin to Suicide Squad, don't be surprised if he finds room for Dave Bautista, who played the brawny deadpan Drax in the first two films.

TheWrap reported "three insiders" have said Gunn will introduce a whole new take to the superhero film franchise, which features some of DC's most famous villains, including Harley Quinn, The Joker, Deadshot, Enchantress and Killer Croc, among others. It's not like they're standing around waiting for his approval.

Gunn directed the first two "Guardians of the Galaxy" movies, but was sacked from the franchise this summer due to the re-emergence of old, offensive tweets.

He was sacked from Guardians 3 in July after old tweets emerged, where he appeared to joke about paedophilia and rape. The first movie was panned by critics when it debuted under the direction of David Ayer in August 2016. The gig with DC marks the first time that Gunn has been tapped for a project since the filmmaker was unceremoniously ousted from Disney's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY franchise due to a series of controversial tweets unearthed by alt-right journalists.

James Gunn is joining the DC bandwagon with the director being all set to pen the sequel of Suicide Squad.

Warner Bros had director Gavin O'Connor attached to that film, but he is now engaged in directing Ben Affleck in the Brad Ingelsby-scripted drama Torrance, which is also at the studio.

"I think it's an incredibly courageous and smart move by the studio", he wrote. Gunn moving from Marvel to DC isn't exactly a surprise, but it sure happened quickly, and the project in question is perhaps the most ideal fit for his sensibilities: Suicide Squad 2.

To many fans, it appeared as if Suicide Squad simply attempted to replicate the success of Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy, a film that also featured a band of merry criminals forging a bond through (cosmic) fire. I've shot most of it already.

We should reiterate that, at the moment, Gunn has only been hired to write the next Suicide Squad.
