James Gunn To Write & Possibly Direct DC’s ‘Suicide Squad 2’ After Being Fired From Marvel’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

Switching Sides

James Gunn To Write & Possibly Direct DC's 'Suicide Squad 2'

Looks like James Gunn might be switching from Marvel to DC.

As you’ll probably remember, the director of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy series was fired from the franchise’s third installment back in July.

The decision was the result of a viral alt-right campaign against the outspoken Donald Trump resistor — a campaign that involved resurfacing gross, disgusting, old tweets from Gunn’s past. Despite petitions from friends and actors to reinstate him, Gunn was never rehired.

But it looks like he won’t be out of a job much longer! Three insiders just revealed to TheWrap that James is in talks with DC to direct the next installment of the Suicide Squad series, starring celebs like Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto. According to Deadline, he’s already signed on to write the script.

This would be a huge get for DC as the first film wasn’t exactly considered a critical darling, but if Gunn gets at the helm, anything is possible.

We’d like to see him back in action. What do you think?

Scarlett Johansson Is Playing Yet ANOTHER Problematic Character…

Scarlett Johansson Is Playing Yet ANOTHER Problematic Character…

no title

UPDATE! 10:43 P.M. EST: Johansson’s rep released the following statement to Bustle from the actress herself:

“Tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman‘s reps for comment.”

All three cisgender actors have played transgender roles to great acclaim.


Scarlett Johansson has clearly not learned from her Ghost in the Shell whitewashing controversy

According to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday, the 33-year-old will play Jean Marie Gill in Rub & Tug, described by the publication as “a drama about a real-life transgender massage parlor owner.” Coincidentally, Johansson is re-teaming with her Ghost director Rupert Sanders.

Jean Marie Gill, who was assigned female at birth, thrived in the 1970s and 1980s massage parlor and prostitution business by assuming the identity of a man, Dante “Tex” Gill.

The only problem? The new flick features a cisgender actress portraying a role that could’ve gone to someone who is actually transgender.

Back in 2016, Michelle Rodriguez faced similar backlash for her movie The Assignment, formerly (Re) Assignment. In the crime thriller, Rodriguez plays a male assassin who is forced to undergo sex-reassignment surgery, as if it was a punishment.

When Johansson’s casting news went viral, Twitter users were FURIOUS! See all the reactions (below): (more…)

Despite reports last month, Jared Leto has NOT signed on to portray Hugh Hefner in the late Playboy founder’s biopic — in fact, it was never official in the first place!

More so, the 45-year-old actor’s rep says Jared will not be working with director-producer Brett Ratner in the future in light of the sexual harassment allegations against him.

A Hugh Hefner biopic has been in the works for the past 10 years. Now, all of the stars are aligning to actually get it made — well, one star in particular…

Jared Leto has signed on to portray the Playboy founder, who died late September at age 91, in an upcoming film from director-producer Brett Ratner.

Ratner, who will direct the film, revealed that Leto has been eyeing the role of the magazine honcho for quite some time, telling The Hollywood Reporter:

“Jared is an old friend. When he heard I got the rights to Hef’s story, he told me, ‘I want to play him. I want to understand him.’ And I really believe Jared can do it. He’s one of the great actors of today.”

The Oscar winner may be a great choice to don the old silk robe, but he isn’t the first actor set to play Hef on the big screen. In fact, (more…)

30 Seconds To Mars Brings Back Hypercolor With Experimental Walk On Water Performance At The 2017 MTV VMAs!

On the MTV VMAs red carpet, Jared Leto teased that his band’s performance would utilize brand new technology.

Apparently that technology was infrared cameras?

30 Seconds To Mars performed Walk On Water with Travis Scott while looking like living hypercolor t-shirts from the ’90s.

Only, they didn’t look unique because of anything they were doing, they just let themselves be filmed with heat sensitive cameras. They didn’t even do anything special with them. So who cares?

See the heat-based performance that left us cold (above)!
