'The Suicide Squad' director James Gunn denies Marvel vs DC rivalry, says both are 'in similar boats'
The "who's better?" war between Marvel and DC fans has raged on for years and in what comes as a more concrete opinion, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'The Suicide Squad' director James Gunn said there was probably "less competition between the two powerhouses" while talking about DC Films and Marvel Studios.
Gun took to Twitter where he wrote: "Honest to God, I can't remember anyone at either Marvel or DC ever condemning the other company," in response to a fan asking about the supposed rivalry.
"I think there's probably slightly less competition between Marvel & DC than between Marvel or DC & all other movies. After all, we are in very similar boats, relatively speaking." A CBR report stated. Gunn has even gone on the record to say he thinks a DC/Marvel crossover film could happen one day.
Gunn has been involved in helming projects for both Marvel and DC. It was 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' for Marvel. For DC, he will be directing 'The Suicide Squad'. He is also slated to direct the third installment of 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.
'The Suicide Squad' has an ensemble cast starring Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Idris Elba and Michael Rooker.
'The Suicide Squad' arrives in theaters in August 6, 2021, while 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3' is slated to hit the screens in 2022.
