New York — James Gunn may have been fired from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, but DC Comics will welcome him with open arms.

Warner Bros. on Tuesday confirmed that Gunn will write the script to the studio's next instalment of Suicide Squad, the DC supervillain team-up franchise. In July, Disney fired Gunn after jokes involving rape and paedophilia he wrote years earlier on Twitter resurfaced.

I got him fired, the producers couldnt find a suitable replacement for me when I told them I will quit if Gunn is hired to direct the next movie.

Disney Reinstates Director James Gunn For ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 3’
The decision to rehire Gunn –he was fired last July by Disney after alt-right journalists made public a fusillade of decade old social media missives that made light of pedophilia and rape — was one that was mulled and actually made months ago, following conversations with Disney studio leadership and the team at Marvel Studios. Why the change of heart? After the firing, Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Hornmet with Gunn on multiple occasions to discuss the situation. Persuaded by Gunn’s public apology and his handling of the situation after, Horn decided to reverse course and reinstate Gunn.
