James Gunn Shares Disappointing News For ‘Brightburn’ Fans: The Sequel Won’t Happen

Gunn explained why fans shouldn’t wait for a follow-up to 2019’s superhero horror film.

James Gunn previously confirmed that there were no plans for ‘Brightburn 2’ at the moment. He recently re-stressed his stance on Threads and cast doubt on the project’s future.

A fan asked the director:

“Were there ever any plans for ‘Brightburn 2’ or just no plans to move forward?”

He wrote:

“I mean, we talked about it early on. But the rights are all f*cked up (I only own half), so it’s unlikely that it will ever happen.”

First Film’s Success

‘Brightburn’ focuses on an alien child raised on Earth. The child uses his superpowers for evil and becomes a villain without a hero in the film.

David Yarovesky sat in the director’s seat for the 2019 original written by Brian and Mark Gunn. James Gunn produced it with Kenneth Huang, and Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, and Jackson A. Dunn led the cast.

The film grossed $33 million at the box office against a $6–12 million budget.

A Follow-Up Written By AI

There were whispers in 2023 about a possible sequel from a new studio integrating ‘the Metaverse, Web3, and AI into a slate of films.’ However, Gunn dismissed them as ‘fake news’ on social media.

Currently, the director is focused on reshaping the DC Universe alongside Peter Safran. The new franchise is kicking off with the animated series ‘Creature Commandos’ later in 2024. Its first live-action film will be ‘Superman’ on July 11, 2025.
