James Gunn confirms new DCEU project at Warner Bros

October 5th, 2021 by Marc Comments

We’ve known for a while now (here) that Suicide Squad and Peacemaker writer and director James Gunn would be back at Warner Bros/Dc developing a new project and, after how good Suicide Squad was, we’d be more than happy to see it.

And now Gunn has revealed online that he is already developing a new project, saying quite explicitly: “Yes, I’m developing another DC project besides Peacemaker.”

Gunn’s Peacemaker series starring John Cena, is set for release on HBO Max early next year and today we got our first look at the series (here).

The show will be a continuation from his The Suicide Squad movie which, itself was a continuation from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie.

As for what the project is, we have no idea but Gunn did say a while ago that is he developed a new DC project “It’s not what anybody would expect, I’ll tell you that much”. He has also expressed interest in another project with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn (here).

We all know that The Suicide Squad performed poorly at the box-office but it seemed to perform very well for HBO Max as it was a dual release, so it appears Warners are still very happy for him to work with them once he is done with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 and the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special at Disney/Marvel.

Will we hear more at Dc Fandome on October 16th? Hard to say at this stage… but we certainly wouldn’t rule it out.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
