If there’s anyone you can trust to have a rock solid opinion about the best films out there, it’s gonna be a director. Even better, is when that director takes his opinions to Twitter and starts a fantastic dialogue about what a great film looks like. Recently, James Gunn, who’s busy editing The Suicide Squad and prepping Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 shared a tweet listing the sequels that he thinks far surpassed their originals.
To be honest, there are very few surprises here, and a lot of superhero films. He’s got a good reason though. He notes, in a follow up tweet, that he’s got a disproportionate amount because “origin stories are often boring and can be an extra element jammed into a story about a superhero vs. a bad guy, instead of being an organic part of the story.’
