The fact of the matter is, I don't know why James feels that way.It's not really my job to investigate what that is.com/87rbhBaumd — James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 9, 2022 Click Here to View the Original Post Peacemaker is written and mostly directed by Gunn, who recognized his titular character's potential from the jump.What I do know is that when someone puts that amount of trust and belief in you, your responsibility, your only job is to make sure it's requited.So I feel James and I have a great collaboration, even on the project we're doing now, which stretches me even further.And he really does stretch me.Peacemaker, which is set to be more grounded than The Suicide Squad, may just be the perfect vehicle for Gunn's signature brand of irreverence.By submitting your information you agree to the.

I feel we have this wonderful combination of him trusting my choices, but him also seeing my choices and recognizing when I can go much further, and surprising me with how much further he can make me get.It feels like a wonderful reciprocal collaboration and I'm having a ball.The time of my life.The Suicide Squad didn't do well at the box office, but the film was a hit with fans and critics."

But then I read the sides, and [what was] on the page was just hilarious.Josh would accredit characters such as Goku, Han Solo, Simba, and Maximus Decimus Meridius for instilling within him an affinity for storytelling.I immediately knew, rhythmically, how this guy should speak.

Emotionally, how he keeps everything in check.All the clues were in the writing.Contact Josh directly: plainse(at)gmail(dot)com." 0comments"My wife and I did a tape together, and it was the first take, because it was very clear to me from James's layout and how he wrote it," Iwuji continued."And James loved it.Whatever the ideas, or the sort of characteristic of that kind of character in the comics are, all I know is — I gave what I, instinctively, felt James was asking for on the page.

I just loved playing [someone with] so much emotion being in check, and I loved flashes of extreme anger and violence.They were just fun to play.But really, I was led by the script.Good writers tend to direct you that way through the dialogue."
