You can bet somewhere in Hollywood, someone has a script for a crossover, an amazing, outstanding, original script. Like nothing else you’ve ever seen, and James Gunn would be the perfect director for it.
James Gunn has worked with both companies, making Guardians of the Galaxy and the soon to be released Suicide Squad 2. A fan asked on Twitter if we would ever be lucky enough to see “a big blockbuster crossover between the MCU and DC.” Gunn replied:
I’ve casually talked to the powers-that-be at both Marvel & DC about it. I would love for it to happen.
However, it wasn’t like this was in the cards, he then went on to say:
I don’t think it’s likely, but I don’t think it’s an impossibility either. THAT SAID, just constantly seeing crossovers & mashups is less enchanting to me than a strong story.
He didn’t say who he spoke to and what type of crossover it could be, The Guardians Vs Suicide Squad, Justice League vs The Avengers, but he talked to someone.
The topic then came up during one of Gunn’s infamous Q&A sessions with fans on Twitter, when another fan asked “So, @JamesGunn… let’s say in an alternate reality, universes collided and you were given the green light and complete creative control over a Guardians of the Galaxy vs Suicide Squad movie. Which team would win?”
Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is due out on 30th July 2021.
