The Suicide Squad director James Gunn confirms he’s developing another DCEU project to make after Peacemaker, but it is in the early stages.
James Gunn confirms he’s developing another DC Extended Universe project to make after Peacemaker. Although Gunn got his big break by making Guardians of the Galaxy as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, his most recent comic book projects have been with DC. The Suicide Squad was his first foray into the DCEU and gave the writer/director a chance to make a big-budget R-rated movie with obscure DC characters. This included John Cena’s Peacemaker, who will star in a spinoff series for HBO Max.
On top of making Peacemaker for HBO Max, Gunn is in high demand across Hollywood. He’s nearing the start of production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and the Disney+ holiday special that arrives in 2022. However, Gunn is also someone Warner Bros., DC Films, and HBO Max want to continue working with. The Suicide Squad earned rave reviews and became the most-watched DC movie on the streaming service, despite underwhelming at the box office. With Peacemaker slated to arrive early next year, fans are quite interested to know if Gunn will do another DCEU project in the future.
