MCU DC Crossover Is Possible Says James Gunn
James Gunn has spoken to Marvel and DC about their respective cinematic universes crossing over and admits it’s improbable, but not impossible.
The MCU is about to move back onto the big screen after a two-year hiatus via Black Widow a few weeks from now. Meanwhile, new life was breathed into the DCEU via the home release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Both universes have busy slates lined up for the next two years, and with Marvel busy re-establishing its own potential multiverse after the end of phase three, the pair could be on a more level playing field than ever.
James Gunn is one of the few people lucky enough to have big things to look forward to in both worlds. The Suicide Squad hits theaters and HBO Max on August 6, 2021, and now that’s done, Gunn can return to work on Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3. After that, perhaps a crossover between the two rogue groups.
No, that isn’t just a fantasy, it’s an idea Gunn has actually floated by his bosses at both Marvel and DC. “I’ve casually talked to the powers-that-be at both Marvel and DC about it. I would love for it to happen,” Gunn replied to fan questions about potential crossovers. “I don’t think it’s likely, but I don’t think it’s an impossibility either.”
The question Gunn is answering specifically asks about the Guardians and the Suicide Squad meeting on screen. The two groups have never officially met in any form, as far as we know, but plenty of heroes from either side of the comic book fence have done in the past. Superman and Spider-Man, Batman and Captain America, Darkseid has even worn the Infinity Gauntlet.
Despite the lore both Marvel and DC have to choose from, as Gunn says, a crossover is incredibly unlikely. The logistics of it all would be one very big headache. Between contracts, screen time, and different studios, it’s hard to imagine a world in which everyone that would need to be involved could agree on enough to make it happen. Sony and Disney have a hard enough time sharing Marvel heroes, let alone adding Warner Bros. and DC into the mix.
