Well, it looks like Marvel and DC's film universes have intersected in a unique way.
According to new reporting, James Gunn is being brought on to write - and possibly direct - DC Films' Suicide Squad 2. This comes after Gunn was fired from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 earlier this year, after a deluge of his past tweets about pedophilia and rape were uncovered.
While there's no telling what Gunn's future on the project could be, the thought of the director jumping from Marvel to DC - much less being brought on to direct another high-profile superhero project - has created quite a stir online. For the most part, fans are pretty divided about the news, and aren't sure if this will end up being a good or a bad decision. Here's a round-up of some of those responses.
I would have been slightly interested in the Suicide Squad sequel, but if WB hires James Gunn to write or direct it, no way I'm seeing it in theaters. Not supporting that. I know Americans love redemption stories, but no thank you.— Lucas Rémoussin (@LucasRemoussin) October 9, 2018
