Looks as James Gunn’s new DC directing gig was far from a controversial move in the eyes of Marvel Studios. It’s nice to hear that Kevin Feige was fully supportive of Gunn’s new venture, and that the studio executive wanted the same thing fans do from these films: a good movie.
It’s no surprise that Marvel Studios did not hold any resentment for James Gunn taking on The Suicide Squad. Gunn has already been announced to return for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and the director has confirmed that the film’s production and release schedule has not changed in the slightest over the last year.
In one of James Gunn’s Instagram posts, where the director revealed a look at the table read for The Suicide Squad, a fan took to the comments to ask Gunn “How did marvel react when you told them you were working with DC as well?”
James Gunn responded by saying:
I told Kevin Feige before I took the job and he was very cool and supportive as he always is. He just wanted me to make a good movie. He and Lou D’Esposito even came to visit the set and watched us shoot. There isn’t the enmity behind the scenes like there is in the fan community.
