Suicide Squad reboot is said to be good

With James Gunn at the helm, many are expecting a good run at the box office

The original Suicide Squad movie by David Ayer was a total flop.

It had immense potential with its star-studded cast and director, David Ayer who was responsible for Fury and End of Watch.

Sadly, Suicide Squad turned out to be a failure that not only received poor reviews but failed to live up to its box office promise as well.

Things are different now at the DC division over at Warner Bros.

A couple of months ago it was announced that James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) would be the director of the next Suicide Squad movie, which is set to be a reboot and not a sequel.

It is reported to be called The Suicide Squad.

Perhaps with Gunn in charge, we might get a Suicide Squad movie that is worthwhile.

James Gunn’s screenplay appears to be really solid.

In an interview with ComicBook.com, Guardians of the Galaxy actor and brother to James Gunn, Sean Gunn, shared his thoughts on his brother’s script:

“I know that he’s [James] very excited about shooting and now that I have read the script for it and I will say nothing other than that it’s really good. And I know that he’s pretty jazzed about it, so I’m definitely excited to hear what happens next. But they start shooting soon.”

While Sean Gunn was never going to come out and say anything negative about his brother’s screenplay, it’s still great to hear more positive news surrounding the project.

James Gunn previously mentioned that he will be drawing heavily from the John Ostrander run of the Suicide Squad comics.

“I have been an enormous fan of [Suicide Squad] in all its [DC Comics] incarnations – but to me there will always be something special about the [John Ostrander] run. Black ops military tales with disposable, often forgotten super villains?! Pure perfection.”

The Suicide Squad is set to hit the big screens on 6 August 2021. -/TISG
