Warner Bros. has confirmed that James Gunn will write "Suicide Squad 2."
According to TheWrap and io9, Gunn could potentially direct the film, as well.
Gunn was fired by Disney in July from directing the third "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie after years-old offensive tweets from Gunn were uncovered.
Nearly three months after being fired by Disney from Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy 3," director James Gunn will write and possibly direct "Suicide Squad 2" for DC and Warner Bros.
Business Insider was able to confirm with Warner Bros. that Gunn will indeed write "Suicide Squad 2," though it's not certain if he'll also direct the film.
TheWrap first reported the news on Tuesday, citing anonymous sources.
