James Gunn might have been fired by Disney, but he could be making his return to the big screen sooner than most anticipated.
As reported by The Wrap earlier today, director James Gunn will write Warner Bros.’s Suicide Squad 2 sequel and although it hasn’t been confirmed, the word is Gunn will likely be tagged to direct the film as well. After being fired by Disney in the summer, it was only matter of time the Guardian of the Galaxy director was hired by one of Disney’s competitors. Gunn was fired by Disney after controversial tweets from his past resurfaced online.
So, what do you think of Gunn getting a second chance so quickly? Are you looking forward to his take on the Suicide Squad? Let us know in the comments below.

Ranking Every Marvel Cinematic Universe Movie From Worst To Best
20. The Incredible Hulk (2008)
For a film about a man who transforms into a giant green rage monster, The Incredible Hulk is surprisingly boring. Most of the film revolves around Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) trying to keep his heart rate under his control so that he doesn’t transform into the Hulk. Logically, this makes sense, since the Hulk is an uncontrollable, destructive force, but that doesn’t mean that watching a man deliberately avoid turning into the creature we all came to see makes for good storytelling.
The other thing working against The Incredible Hulk — and the reason it’s the worst entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — is that it doesn’t feel like it fits with the rest of the franchise. A lot of that has to do with the fact that it was made at a time when the MCU wasn’t yet established and the replacement of Norton with Mark Ruffalo afterward, but regardless, The Incredible Hulk remains the oft-forgotten black sheep of the franchise and for good reason.
