The Marvel Cinematic Universe resides at Disney while DC Entertainment has its home at Warner Bros. Both franchises make bucketloads of money for their respective corporate overlords so there is little incentive for Disney and WB to combine forces and share the wealth. But in the spirit of Marvel’s latest Disney+ series: What if…there was a filmmaker, nay a hero, strong enough to make such a crossover happen?
James Gunn is one of the few creatives to have made a home in both Marvel and DC’s sandboxes. The writer-director scored his first major hit with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy (followed up by Vol. 2 and the upcoming Vol. 3) and is now working with DC on their latest supervillain team-up effort The Suicide Squad.
