Hamada confirmed the news to THR, saying that Gunn is always welcome back to DC.
“Gunn is always welcome back, whatever he wants to do. He really has a vision, and he’s a great partner with us. Whenever he wants to come back, we’re ready for him,” said Hamada, who added, “He’ll be back. We have more stuff planned.”
It’s been confirmed that Gunn is writing and directing several episodes of “The Suicide Squad” spin-off Peacemaker, which is set to star John Cena, but it appears there may be bigger plans for Gunn and DC in the future.
Cena was not only excited over the prospect of working with Gunn once again, but he also expressed content over the fact that he’s going to keep working with DC, a sentiment that was also shared by “The Suicide Squad’s” Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) during the film’s premiere at Westwood.
“If I read the script and didn’t know James Gunn was going to direct it, it would have been a straight-up ‘no,’” Robbie said. “I was like, ‘No one could pull this off.’ It’s so specific in its brand of comedy and violence. But it came out of his imagination. He knew exactly what to do with it.”
Though his next major DC project is still shrouded in mystery, he did tease fans on Instagram with the suggestion that another “The Suicide Squad” spin-off could be in the works.
Thus far, “The Suicide Squad’s” has been met with nothing but positive critical reviews, averaging a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes and already dubbed one of the best DC films to date.
“This movie could exist without any of us here. There is one person it wouldn’t exist without … That is John Ostrander,” Gunn said to massive applause as he stood up and waved to the crowd ahead of the film’s screening at the premiere. “He is the man that deserves all the accolades.”
“The Suicide Squad” will arrive in theatres on August 6, but the film is already available to watch on HBO Max, where it’ll stay on the platform for one month.
