By now you have heard Disney have fired James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, about some tweets he made between 2008-2012. Some big names came out to support James but to no avail. There was an online petition to get Disney to hire him back.
In July 30, 2018 the cast of GOTG released a joint statement in support of him. Disney also took a courtesy meeting with James and his agent. However Disney was staying firm on their decision. Back in August, Disney said to put the 3rd GOTG on hold, telling all the pre-production workers to find another job.
Bad news for fans of Guardians of Galaxy but great news for DC as they have hired him to be a writer for Suicide Squad and perhaps directed by him. Suicide Squad came out in 2016. That movie was trashed by critics but I actually enjoyed the movie. This movie starred Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, etc. WB stated the new Suicide Squad movie will be out on August 6, 2021.
The new Suicide Squad movie will have Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, King Shark, Rat Catcher, Polka Dot Man and Peacemaker. Harley Quinn is an A list character. King Shark is a C list character. The rest of them are D list characters. The D list characters will probably die in the movie in my opinion.
This blog will talk about Rat Catcher, Check out my future blog for the other characters.
Rat Catcher first appeared in Detective Comics 585 (April 1988) published by DC Comics. Unfortunately, he is not on the cover of this issue. Rat Catcher has control of sewer rats. A similar character named Ratboy made an appearance of Batman Beyond show.
Copies of Detective Comics 585 sold for $30 to $45 on March 9-10, 2019. Back in March 2019, there weren’t many CGC of that book for sale. There is a recent copy of Detective Comics 585 CGC 9.8 sold for $167.50 on June 6, 2019.
