Director James Gunn has donated items from ‘The Suicide Squad’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ to a charity auction. Gunn originally began his career as a screenwriter, creating the screenplays for horror-tinged films like ‘Romeo and Juliet’, ‘Scooby-Doo’, and Zack Snyder's ‘Dawn of the Dead’. After making his feature directorial debut with 2006's Slither, Gunn almost immediately jumped into the world of superheroes. His sophomore feature was 2010's ‘Super’ starring Rainn Wilson as a regular guy who decides to become a hero called the Crimson Bolt. ‘Super’ became the calling card that launched Gunn into the comic book big leagues.

In 2014, his third film was the massively successful ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, applying his typical sarcastic humor to a lesser-known Marvel property about a motley crew of spacefarers. He went on to direct that film's sequel in 2017. Most recently, he helmed the DC universe sequel/reboot The Suicide Squad, which premiered in theaters and simultaneously on HBO Max this August. He will also direct seven episodes of the Peacemaker spinoff series for HBO Max. Although James Gunn was fired from Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after some distasteful old tweets resurfaced, he was later reinstated and will be helming that film as well, which is set for release in May 2023.
On his Instagram, Gunn detailed the items he has donated to a Veteran's Day eBay charity auction for Homes for Our Troops, an organization that builds custom homes for injured veterans. The first is a Star-Lord Zune signed by Gunn, Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Kurt Russell (Ego), Michael Rooker (Yondu), Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha), Sean Gunn (Rocket Racoon on set), and Pom Klementieff (Mantis). -We Got This Covered
