James Gunn reveals 'Guardians of Galaxy' star Chris Pratt may join DC universe
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Only a few months remain until the epic 'Guardians of the Galaxy' trilogy finale, which has been anticipated for years. James Gunn, who will leave Marvel Studios after the release of the next chapter, has said in an exclusive interview with Empire Magazine that he might work with the cast of the movie again at DC Studios in the future.
During the interaction, Gunn said, “This cast is like my family. I cannot tell you how close I am to Chris Pratt and Pom [Klementieff] and Dave [Bautista] and Zoe [Saldaña] and Karen [Gillan]. But I also know I will work again with all those people individually again. Probably at my other job.”
Working with the same people repeatedly comes naturally to Gunn, especially those he has gotten to know well over time, like Michael Rooker and Nathan Fillion. Since the DCU will keep him busy for the next few years, it stands to reason that he will try to cast the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' cast in DC projects that he is currently working on. However, this does not imply that each and every Guardian will die suddenly in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3'. While a few significant deaths have been hinted at in the past, Gunn is proof that talent can exist in both the MCU and DCU at the same time.
When Gunn first took the jump over to DC, he brought 'Guardians of the Galaxy' veterans Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn with him for 'The Suicide Squad'. Subsequently, he took DC collaborators Chukwudi Iwuji and Daniela Melchior to Marvel for Guardians Vol 3. Therefore, it isn't exactly surprising that he will be open to working with the Guardians cast once more in the future.
“What a bunch of a-holes.” A great line from the first trailer that hooked fans on the little-known 'Guardians of the Galaxy'. Nearly a decade later, those same a-holes have become household names and are about to go on their last mission together in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3'.
