These are uncertain times. In an attempt to round the curve of the spread of CO-VID 19, movie studios have delayed the big movie releases, halted productions, and fast-tracked new releases to digital platforms. However, the future of the entertainment industry remains in question. Director James Gunn has shined a bright light in this questionable future. During an interaction with a fan on Twitter, the filmmaker revealed that he is still hard at work on editing his upcoming DCEU film The Suicide Squad.
Take a look at the tweet below.
Working on The Suicide Squad edit (from home), writing, meditating, exercising, talking with my gf, talking with others on my phone, playing with my cat & dog, making a Spotify playlist for you guys, @criterionchannl, & doing what I can to help others while locked up in my house! https://t.co/862riRIJxV

James Gunn still working on the film’s edit from home should provide fans with hope that Hollywood will soon return to a semblance of normalcy. The upcoming film will reportedly be a soft reboot of the franchise. While it will feature characters from 2016’s David Ayer-led Suicide Squad, many fans except a completely different tone. Gunn recruited a litany of A-list talent for the film and spent many months filming scenes in Central America. Additionally, set footage and photos have provided fans with small glimpses of what to look forward to. Among them are Harley Quinn’s new look, John Cena as a bad guy, and Idris Elba taking the lead.
Despite the current state of the world, this remains a rather exciting time for DC movie fans. Following the reveal of Robert Pattinson’s Batman from director Matt Reeves, fans are looking forward to what the future of the DCEU will hold. Following the completion of The Suicide Squad, Gunn will next tackle Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
