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 stay firm on their decision. Back in August 2018, 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 and director for Suicide Squad. The original 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. The new Suicide Squad movie is out on August 6, 2021 in movie theaters and/or HBO Max.
The comic book to purchased is Suicide Squad New 52 issue 1, this is the first issue having Harley Quinn as a member of Suicide Squad. There have been some earlier versions of Suicide Squad but no Harley Quinn in it. The price of Suicide Squad New 52 issue 1 won’t go up too high since Harley was introduced to use in the 2016 movie but I heard this new movie might a reboot. I am pretty sure WB will have Harley Quinn in future movies and cartoons.
