Ben Affleck Signs For New Movie With Gavin O'Connor

Suicide Squad			Warner Bros

However, director David Ayer wasn't brought back for the sequel and the studio started looking elsewhere.

The first film was critiqued heavily by critics and audience members alike, scoring a measly 28% on Rotten Tomatoes. Word rapidly spread about its troubled post-production, which included re-shoots and, reportedly, competing edits.

"As I have discussed publicly many times, as I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humour".

In an unusual film-news announcement, Warner Bros. The result was a cut-and-paste film that tried to be something it was not: a lighthearted film that was colorful, action-filled and humorous despite its lead characters being unsafe killers.

The first Suicide Squad film featured a motley crew of antiheroes played by, clockwise from left, Margot Robbie, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Joel Kinnaman, Will Smith, Jai Courtney and Karen Fukuhara.

Bangladesh sentences 19 to death for political rally attack
Nuruddin said the attack was meant to eliminate the Awami League's leadership, including Hasina. "God knows everything. The BNP says the case was politically motivated and aimed at destroying the image of party leaders.

And Suicide Squad, unlike Guardians, was considered a total critical disappointment.

James Gunn, who you might remember was sacked from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, has just penned a deal with Warner Bros. and DC to write, and possibly direct, the new Suicide Squad movie.

This is Gunn's first assignment since Disney removed him from the money-spinning Guardians franchise. Under Gunn's watch, the Guardians became household names nearly overnight.

While it's unclear what will come of the situation, Marvel Studios might be feeling some pangs of regret over parting ways with the Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker due to the comments he made on Twitter earlier in his career. But Bautista was the most vocal of the bunch in defending Gunn, and in insisting he would rather not be involved with a company that would bow to an online troll mob and fire a guy for tasteless jokes. Disney quickly dropped Gunn from the planned sequel, though it appears his script may yet be used when a new director is named.

Warner Bros has let nary a detail slip about the potential plot and with James Gunn on board to write, whatever was rumoured to be included could go out the window. io9 also reports Gunn's sequel would not necessarily be a sequel to Ayer's movie, but a completely new direction using the same or similar characters. What do you think about James Gunn's addition to Suicide Squad 2? Then again, Gunn's fresh perspective on the DC IP might simply result in some quirky humor reminiscent of the wit found in the Guardians of the Galaxy duology.
