James Gunn says that these sequels are better than its predecessor in the film


The director James Gunn is in full development The Suicide Squadthe second movie of the team of anti-heroes, DC Comics, and the truth is that since we do not know well if it will be a sequel or a rebootbecause both things have been denied to the tiredness. One thing is for sure, it will not be a third party (that is a joke, ok?).

As part of their preparation and for people to trust him – that this second movie will be good- Gunn made a list of second parts in the film that exceed the original. On his Twitter account listed them in the following way.

  • Toy Story 2
  • Godfather II
  • Spider-Man 2
  • Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans
  • Evil Dead 2
  • Shrek 2
  • The Dark Knight
  • Bride of Frankenstein
  • Hellboy II
  • Road Warrior (Mad Max 2)
  • For a Few Dollars More
  • Paddington 2
  • X2
  • Empire Strikes Back
  • Wrath of Kahn
  • Superman II
    Batman Returns
  • Gremlins 2
  • Blade II
  • Legend of the Drunken Master
  • Desperado
  • Blade Runner 2049
  • Magnum Force
    Final Destination 2
  • Captain America Winter Soldier
  • Swordsman II

In a second tweet said that he lacked to mention Terminator 2movie , with which we agree, but perhaps with Shrek 2 not so much. It was felt that Alien and its sequel, Aliens, were tied.

“You’ll notice a disproportionate amount of films of superheroes in this list. The reason is that the stories of origin are often boring and can be an additional element in a story about a superhero against a bad guy, instead of being an organic part of the story”, he explained on his Twitter account.

A user asked him if he considered to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 boring (by being an origin story) in comparison with the sequel to what the director said no. “I don’t really have an origin story in Guardians 1. We told how the group can gather, but with luck is a part, intrinsic and organic to the story itself,” he said.

Do you agree with the list of James Gunn? What other sequels are considered superior to the original film?
