Walter Hamada says James Gunn will return for another DC project

It seems that DC Films isn’t quite done with James Gunn yet if Walter Hamada has anything to say about it.

Gunn is an in-demand director at the moment, and it seems like he is only becoming more so. With The Suicide Squad opening in more countries this week, everyone is speaking about his future, and it seems DC Films wants to work with him again.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, DC Films president Walter Hamada said, “Gunn is always welcome back, whatever he wants to do. He really has a vision and he’s a great partner with us. Whenever he wants to come back, we’re ready for him.” Hamada went on to add, “He’ll be back. We have more stuff planned.”

Gunn is currently editing the HBO Max Peacemaker series while also prepping both the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for Marvel Studios.

From comments Gunn has made over the press circuit for The Suicide Squad you shouldn’t immediately suspect it will be another outing for Task Force X. Gunn has said it will be something “unexpected,” so you can let your imaginations run wild on what that could possibly mean.

The Suicide Squad is due to hit theaters and HBO Max on Aug. 5, 2021 in the U.S.
