io9 reports that James Gunn, who was previously fired from Marvel and Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, is in talks to pen the script for DC’s Suicide Squad 2 and may also direct the untitled sequel.

When 2016’s Suicide Squad brought in more than $745 million at the worldwide box office, a sequel seemed like a sure thing. David Ayer decided not to come back for seconds, and both Jaume Collet-Serra (Jungle Cruise) and Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge) were courted to helm the next installment before The Accountant and Warrior director Gavin O’Connor signed on to write and direct Suicide Squad 2 in September of 2017.

Back in July, Walt Disney Studios fired Gunn from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 due to Gunn’s past controversial tweets. Despite this, the Guardians of the Galaxy‘s main cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn and Bautista, who all still supported him and requested Disney to reinstate Gunn as the film’s director.
