In addition to Peacemaker, Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special in 2022, and then Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2023, as well as his prior writing commitments, Gunn is certainly in high demand!
In a fan Q&A on James Gunn’s Instagram Story, the director hinted that he’s working on another DC project apart from The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker.
After a fan asked Gunn if he’s “working on other projects at DC outside of Peacemaker / The Suicide Squad,” Gunn responded “Maybe just a little. One toe dipped in.”
Now, Gunn is one of the more active and transparent filmmakers on social media and well known for his willingness to interact with fans. While offering insight about his upcoming projects is nothing new for the director, this hint is surprising considering his current workload and that it will be yet another project for DC.
Due to his schedule, the director most likely won’t be able to tackle this potential DC project until after finishing GOTG Vol. 3 for Disney and Marvel. This then could mean Gunn will be one of the few writers and directors to cross back and forth between the two major comic book film studios and create content for rival universes.
