James Gunn calls Suicide Squad 2 the ultimate comic book movie of all time
Writer / director James Gunn, who has made a name for himself in the genre, has said that The Suicide Squad is the ultimate comic book movie of all time.
Writer / Director James Gunn says The suicide squad is the ultimate comic book movie of all time. Gunn began writing independent horror films and working on films such as the live-action Warner Bros. Scooby doo and that of Zack Snyder Dawn of the Dead. After making his directorial debut with horror comedy, To glide (2006), and making his first superhero outing with Great (2010), Gunn brought in a motley group of misfits, aka the guardians of the galaxy to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Due to his work on the guardians of the galaxy franchise, Gunn is now best known for overturning expectations associated with comic book movies. Prior to the release of this first film, causal moviegoers were not familiar with the names Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, Gamora, and Drax. That’s why, when Marvel / Disney randomly (and briefly) decided to fire Gunn, Warner Bros. hired Gunn to write and direct a DC project of his choosing. Given his affinity for eccentric outcasts, Gunn was drawn to John Ostrander The suicide squad. The reboot / sequel by David Ayers Suicide Squad (2016) sees Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Task Force X and welcomes little-known newcomers including Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Peacemaker (John Cena), Weasel (Sean Gunn), Polka Dot Man (David Dastmalchian), King Shark (Sylvester Stallone) and TDK (Nathan Fillion).
Promote The suicide squadReleased in August on HBO Max and in theaters, Gunn, Robbie, and Cena, sporting their peacemaker costume, recently took a break Jimmy Kimmel Live! During the conversation, Gunn spoke of wanting to do the “ultimate comic book movie of all time. “Read what he had to say below:
“Really, I just wanted to make the ultimate comic book movie of all time, and I’m creatingd The suicide squad based on one of my all-time favorite John Ostrander books about a bunch of really crappy supervillains being used as fodder by the US government for Black Ops, putting them on a suicide visit where most of them die. This group of Suicide Squad members travel to Corto Maltese, a fictional island off the coast of Argentina, in an attempt to stop an insurgency.
Gunn’s villainous ensemble is set to honor the Ostrander comic book by being an unpredictable, R-rated game. Having complete creative control over the project, Gunn teased on several occasions The suicide squad will have a devastating toll. He cautioned fans not to get too attached to characters. On this press tour, Gunn also said he thinks contemporary comic book movies are boring; saying “if they don’t change they will get really, really boring. That said, movies set within the MCU have often been criticized for their form.
The suicide squad seems to live up to its hype and be one of the most exciting comic book movies in quite some time. Obviously, WB trusts Gunn ultimate comic book movie of all time because they already produced the HBO Max spin-off Peacemaker which was created, written and primarily directed by Gunn. Following his work in the DC Extended Universe, Gunn will begin production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The third Guardians the entry is set to another “ultimate comic book movie of all time“and will likely be his last collaboration with Marvel Studios.
