Yesterday, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Suicide Squad director James Gunn was announced as co-chairman and co-CEO of the newly formed DC Studios with producer Peter Safran. The director is already working on Peacemaker season 2 and will now head up the DC Universe, formally known as the DC Extended Universe at Warner Bros. Fans are more hopeful than ever that a crossover will finally happen, especially given what he and Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has spoken about the idea.
Hollywood insider Daniel Richtman simply tweeted, “A DC/Marvel crossover is now more possible than ever.”
Comic book movie fans noted that when The Suicide Squad was released, Gunn confessed to Collider, “I’ve actually talked about it with the heads of Marvel and DC, but, you know, it’s like, they, you know everyone is interested.” open to everything, but if something would ever happen, who knows? But the idea of being able to bring Marvel and DC together in one movie would be a lot of fun for me.”
Despite the potential legal complications of bridging the two worlds, Gunn added, “I know it’s exciting to think about even for the heads of Marvel and DC, Kevin Feige at Marvel and Toby Emmerich at Warner Bros. You know, it’s something that everyone loves. likes to dream. If we could ever get past the barrage, the Berlin Wall of lawyers that we would have to go through to make something like that happen, I don’t know, but it would be great.”
Plus, the MCU boss has admitted that he’s certainly open to the idea as well. Given his working relationship with Gunn and the direction of the multiverse both studios are headed in, this would also make a lot of narrative sense.

Feige previously told Comic Book: “Well, look, my standard response to things is ‘never say never.’ I never thought we’d get this far.”

And having finished the spectacular The Suicide Squad and selling that movie, he’s fine.” preparation for Guardians 3 is underway now.”
Still, one fan tweeted: “Kevin Feige said ‘never say never’ to a Marvel and DC crossover. Now James Gunn is the president of DC Studios. Will we ever see The Avengers with Justice League?
Dwayne Johnson, who used his production power to bring back Henry Cavill’s Superman in a Black Adam cameo, certainly thinks they can make it work between the two studios to bring the two superhero teams together in one epic.

And if the ultimate goal is to have some kind of crossover that can be compelling and smart and cool for the fans,” Johnson said. “Let’s get a temperature gauge if you’d like to see something like that. And then if they do, then we’re going to create it. I run my business like this. I really believe that anything can happen.
