James Gunn is trying his best to not make his own superhero movies “boring.” The Suicide Squad director spoke to SFX Magazine about the upcoming sequel and why he tried to made it different than other superhero films.
“They’re mostly boring to me right now!” Gunn, 54, said. “I loved them at the beginning and there are still people trying to do different things [with them], so it’s not a 100% rule, but a lot of them are boring. So I think it’s about bringing in other elements from different genres.”
“I loved the idea of making a supervillain war caper film,” continues Gunn. “Films like The Dirty Dozen and Where Eagles Dare, those are of different elements from the backdrop of war and the caper heist element, to the sneaking around, the high stakes, the adventure. It gave me a great excuse to be able to create a film a genre I’ve loved since I was a little kid, and do it in a big way and not have to hold back,” the filmmaker added.
