James Gunn recently debunked a rumor that he forced DC to bring back the character Emilia Harcourt from his movie “The Suicide Squad”. The rumor claimed that Gunn was so fond of the character, played by Jennifer Holland, that he made DC executives bring her back in the comics. However, Gunn took to Twitter to deny the rumor, saying that he had nothing to do with Harcourt’s return to the comics. He also said that he was not aware of any plans to bring her back in the movies.
The rumor appears to have originated from a comment made by comic book writer Tom Taylor. Taylor, who is writing the current Suicide Squad comic book series, said that he was “excited” to be working with Harcourt again. However, he did not say that Gunn had anything to do with her return.
It is possible that Taylor’s comment was misinterpreted by some fans, who then spread the rumor that Gunn was responsible for Harcourt’s return. However, there is no evidence to support this claim.
It is worth noting that Gunn has a history of denying rumors about his work. In the past, he has denied rumors that he was fired from Marvel Studios, that he was working on a “Guardians of the Galaxy” spin-off, and that he was planning to make a “Suicide Squad” sequel.
In this case, it seems likely that the rumor about Gunn forcing DC to bring back Emilia Harcourt is simply not true.
