The 76-year-old director and producer has a long-standing partnership with the now world-famous comic book director.

Forming a close relationship with Kaufman over the course of their collaborations, Gunn made his studio directorial debut with his 2006 horror film, To glide.
Turning now to Instagram, Gunn shared a look at his former mentor and friend on the set of his recently released feature film, The suicide squad. I wish him a happy 76e birthday, Gunn posted four behind-the-scenes photos of Kaufman posing alongside several of the DCEU’s new stars, including John Cena, David Dastmalchian and Daniela Melchior.
