DC Comics hires James Gunn after Disney fires him

This seems to suggest that Gunn's Suicide Squad sequel will be different in every possible way to David Ayer's much-maligned 2016 original, which pulled in $746.8 million at the global box office. "Apparently, the writer/director "[will] have a completely new take on the property".

It's not clear which members of the cast will return, but you have to expect Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn (who will next be seen in 2020's Birds Of Prey movie) is a lock, as well as Will Smith's Deadshot.

Multiple reports indicate that former Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn will be helming a new Suicide Squad movie.

Deadline says that Gunn is writing the sequel to Suicide Squad, and WB has asked him to consider directing it.

According to Justin Kroll of Variety, O'Connor - who initially joined the project a little over a year ago - opted to exit Suicide Squad 2 following frustrations he had with the studio. O'Connor was previously attached to the sequel pic, but eventually dropped out to work on The Has-Been, a Ben Affleck-led drama written by Brad Ingelsby, for Warner Bros.

The cast of Guardians Of The Galaxy have defended Gunn since the tweets were unearthed.

Suicide Squad 2 does not yet have a release date.

As of yet, no replacement director has been announced for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

The director was sacked from the Disney franchise of films after tweets from years ago saw revealed jokes in poor taste, concerning rape and pedophilia - since then, Gunn has apologised and said he had grown as a person in the years since the jokes. Word on the street is that Warners has been keeping a close eye on Gunn for the job since the moment that his firing from the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY franchise was made public. As of right now, it sounds like they'll be using his script, but they have yet to find a director.
