    I think it is funny when people act like they are the end all if a movie is good or not. I get toxic replies when I say I like The Last Jedi and Force Awakens

    Gunn is a (potential) ticking time bomb and who really knows for certain what else could come out about him during or after a movie is made with WB/DC. I say pass. He can find work elsewhere.

  • Transformersguy On The Hunt

    I think he should try his hands at another small budget horror film before moving to a big budget production. Maybe get in touch with Blumhouse.

    Don't let him near Shazam! There are little kids in it!

    Right now, I feel James Gunn ought to come over to Warner Bros and do a DC movie. Doesn't necessarily have to be a superhero movie but a DC Vertigo property. I Think he'd jump at that.

  • Sauvage Ascension

    Gunn doesn’t needs to direct movies for a few years. Take the severance 10 mil. & work on building his own production company.

    GIve Gunn Suicide Squad 2, and then let's make an homage to the super deep cut, minor DC character "The Funland Serial Killer" (AKA Nathaniel Diskin) the one that likes to abduct children in his "favorite spot," where no body knows about him because the owners like to cover it up because they want every one to think of it as a "happy" place. And even if he can't find children to "play with him," he can always just go on the rides. Maybe show him wearing a Star Wars shirt.
    It's not like he has to show loyalty to the corporation that showed him no loyalty to begin with.

    Ruby Rose’s crying scene in The Meg, when her friend died, was awful. She was NOT the best actor in that movie.

    Gunn should obviously direct a young Robin movie. Maybe have Bryan Singer produce.

      Except for having Bryan Singer around, that is actually a good suggestion.

    Crazy Rich Asians looks like the worst movie ever made. If it really is good, then giving the movie a review embargo isn't helping change anyone's mind. Judging from the trailer. you'd need an ounce of weed and a xanax to watch Crazy Rich Asians.

  • dancingdog60

    I think Gunn should take Bautista to DC and direct an adaptation of LOBO!

    People have been losing their jobs over tweets for awhile now but because its James gunn now u all think its unfair

    • remliqa

      Case by case basis. It was unfair that some those people who lost their jobs to social media and now you can include Gunn as one of those people who should never been fired.

    • Techno Bacon

      Well it's a case by case thing. Just because other people have lost their jobs over tweets doesn't make the James Gunn situation not bullshit.

    very unlikely. cernovich has been holding back new info, you'd know this john if you researched a bit or DM'd him.
    Basically cernovich and his crew are waiting for major announcements and then they release info.

    I still can't wrap my head around pouring liquid butter on popcorn.
    I can't seeing it bringing out more of the flavor of the popcorn itself since with all that salt you have more than enough flavor carrier. That leaves just adding the taste of butter, which is just bland and fatty. Is there something else in the butter? I do remember trying some American butter popcorn seasoning. It was absolutely dreadful but I can't say that it tasted like butter.
    On top of that it has to make the popcorn soggy, which doesn't sound pleasing at all.

    • Nobody No One
      Nobody No One 10 months ago

      I'm with you Evil Peter. The popcorn flavor alone is enough for me. No need to make it messy, give it more calories, and add unhealthy saturated fat.

    • Siedious Swift

      They compliment each other. It’s not for everyone I guess.

    • SuperShanko
      SuperShanko 10 months ago

      Evil Peter
      I know. In more general popcorn making you add the butter and roll it around to coat it, I don’t like just pouring butter onto it because it makes it soggy and poopy.

    Sony should get him to direct the Uncharted movie and THEN use that leverage to persuade Chris Pratt to reconsider the role of Nathan Drake.

    DC/Warner Bros won't hire James Gunn -- Jame Gunn has issue and baggage, which WB can do with out - they have enough issues to deal.

    • Siedious Swift
      Siedious Swift 10 months ago +1

      John Castiel I’ll give it a year-never before WB hires him. That’s my humble prediction. xD

    • John Castiel

      Eliza Gaskell it was reported that they and other studios already tried to get him.

    • Siedious Swift

  • Nathan
    Nathan 10 months ago

    The toxicity has gone down because it's SEEMS, not is, like things are going their way. With the failure of Solo, rumors of Kathleen being in hot water, and serious belief that Johnson will not get a trilogy. Plus the Clone Wars announcement probably helped. And Dave not being heavily involved with Resistance suggest he might be taking on more responsibility. I'm not a big believer in the "people are inherently good" argument, especially when there are other possible explanations.

    If it were me, I’d write that the snap reunited Drax with his family and he chose not to return.

      Jamal Salih exactly

    • Jamal Salih
      Jamal Salih 10 months ago +1

      Wade Wilson I could role with that. You’re saying Drax can be content, being that revenge against Thanos was his motivating drive to fight.

    • Wade Wilson
      Wade Wilson 10 months ago

      Jamal Salih yea unfortunately hahah drax could easily just be content with thanos being defeated after it’s all said and done

    • Jamal Salih
      Jamal Salih 10 months ago

      Wade Wilson dang it! He did say that, didn’t he?

    • Wade Wilson
      Wade Wilson 10 months ago

      Except thanos didn’t say that people would die..he said they would cease to exist. That doesn’t sound like you go to an afterlife. Gamora is in the soul stone but that’s a special instance

  • Lawrence Kin

    I'd like to see James Gunn direct the "Green Lantern Corps" movie next. He's the best guy to helm a superhero ensemble film.

    • hiddenstoner

      DayTripper couldnt have said it better. Gunn will make the corp a joke.

    • DayTripper
      DayTripper 10 months ago +1

      Lawrence Kin but why do I feel like he will just try to make it like Guardians? Which yes that is a bad thing considering how much more serious the Corp is. I want a director who will focus on willpower.

    • Benerji

    Easy fix on the drax situation he chooses not to come back cause in the snap universe he is already reunited with his family.

      Nice but his contract snaps on a different tune

    • The Loud Bostonian
      The Loud Bostonian 10 months ago

      SuperShanko oh I totally agree, just probably the easiest way to write off the one character that may not want to return. But I am fairly sure that at the end of the day Bautista will return regardless.

    • SuperShanko
      SuperShanko 10 months ago +2

      The Loud Bostonian
      Yea, but then that depends on how the snap works, and then it gets iffy on having to explain why one person “chooses” not to return while trillions of others do.

  • hiddenstoner

    This is a bad move if WB/DC want him. They can find better directors.

      WB won't feel like they struck a goldmine if yet another weird and disturbing thing comes out about Gunn. I say pass on WB hiring Gunn and allow this guy to work somewhere else. DC/WB doesn't need a potential ticking time bomb like Gunn (Talent or no talent).

    • DayTripper
      DayTripper 10 months ago

      TimbulaTheSpidermonkey yeah that’s exactly what I’m saying. Swamp thing has never been know for humor. He’s got more of dark, horror, and mystical elements to him, all things that other directors can do better than Gunn.

    • TimbulaTheSpidermonkey
      TimbulaTheSpidermonkey 10 months ago

      Gotta agree. I love James’ work and Swamp Thing is in my top 5 comic book characters, but NOOOO!!!!! I want a dark fairytale Swamp Thing movie. Someone like a Guillermo del Toro. Plastic Man would work because of the sense of humour he has. It would be a perfect fit for Gunn’s style.

    • DayTripper
      DayTripper 10 months ago

    • Dark&Twisted
      Dark&Twisted 10 months ago

      From what I've been reading from on-line articles to his updates on twitter, He's pretty much had it with Disney/Marvel, I honestly think after GoTG#3 he will be on his way, given the level of positive appraisals he recieved for his BladeRunner2049 Sapper, I think he might just explore such type of characters heading into the future.

    • SuperShanko
