‘The Suicide Squad’: James Gunn Explains Connection To David Ayer’s Film

‘The Suicide Squad’: James Gunn Explains Connection To David Ayer’s Film

James Gunn recently addressed whether or not The Suicide Squad will contradict David Ayer’s 2016 film.

Perhaps the biggest question surrounding James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is if it will be a sequel or a reboot. David Ayer’s Suicide Squad film wasn’t well-received, but it was still a success financially. Ayer himself isn’t even a fan of the film that hit theaters in 2016, but Gunn is bringing several actors back.

James Gunn Has Brought Up Marvel & DC Crossover At Both Studios

While we still might not have a clear answer and it might not even matter, James Gunn let it be known in an interview with Total Film that The Suicide Squad will not undo anything from David Ayer’s film:

“There’s nothing really in there that contradicts David’s [Ayer] movie. I think the original film did some amazing casting on those characters, in particular the ones I used… I changed what I wanted to and kind of didn’t fix what wasn’t broken.”

What would you call The Suicide Squad? A sequel or a reboot? Sound-off in the comments below!

James Gunn Reveals ‘The Suicide Squad’ Runtime

You can check out the synopsis for the James Gunn film below.

Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.

Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, and Michael Rooker.

The Suicide Squad is currently scheduled to hit theaters and HBO Max on August 6, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the James Gunn project, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!

New Direction For ‘The Batman’ Paved The Way For ‘The Long Halloween’ Films

Things change. The post New Direction For ‘The Batman’ Paved The Way For ‘The Long Halloween’ Films appeared first on Heroic Hollywood.

New Direction For ‘The Batman’ Paved The Way For ‘The Long Halloween’ Films

Batman: The Long Halloween adaptation apparently came to fruition after Robert Pattinson’s film went in a different direction.

The Long Halloween is one of the most influential Batman works ever, and elements of the story are notably felt in The Dark Knight. An early rumor about Robert Pattinson’s The Batman is that the comic book would heavily inspire that story as well, but it now sounds like things changed during the creative process.

Justice League Director Zack Snyder Reacts To Batman Controversy

We are finally getting an animated adaptation of Batman: The Long Halloween, in two parts, but new information from Entertainment Weekly suggests it was on hold at one point because of the Robert Pattinson film. It sounds like the animated films could only move forward once Matt Reeves decided to go in a different direction. That’s not to say the 2022 film won’t pull anything from the comic, but it might not be as influenced as some originally thought.

What do you make of this? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!

‘Batman: The Long Halloween Part 2’ Trailer Teases Two-Face & The Joker

The plot of The Batman is being kept under wraps, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger version of Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as the Dark Knight of Gotham City. The film will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the hero. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films with Pattinson.

Directed by Matt Reeves, the film stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.

The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022, while The Long Halloween, Part One will be available on digital and Blu-ray on June 22.
