James Gunn is best known for directing big projects such as Guardians of the Galaxy spirit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for Marvel duck The Suicide Squad spirit Peacemaker for DC. Recently, the creator was named the new co-chair and co-CEO of DC Studios alongside Peter Safran, which means the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will likely be his last film with Marvel. Gunn has also confirmed that the movie will be the last to feature the original Guardians crew, and he’s also hinted that there will be some major deaths in the movie. In fact, Gunn often answers fan questions on Twitter, and he debunked a rumor that more Guardians movies are on the way.
“James Gunn seemingly confirms that there will be future ‘GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY’ movies,” @StreamrNews tweeted. The account shared a tweet of Gunn’s about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 that read, “It’s around that long, although that’s not yet exact. And, I promise, not a second is wasted. There’s no fat. It was necessary to experience the full arc for every major Guardians character, not only for this film, but for the trilogy (or, I should say, trilogy plus).” In the correction tweet, he added, “The ‘trilogy plus’ is the trilogy plus the Holiday Special, IW and Endgame.” You can check out the post below:

James Gunn Shuts Down Marvel Vs. DC Competition:
When The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special was released on Disney+ back in November, some DC fans were not happy that Gunn was still plugging his projects with Marvel. Gunn shared a behind-the-scenes photo from The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Twitter and someone commented, “You are of DC, NO Marvel!!!” Gunn replied, “As was made clear in all press, until May I am both DC & Marvel. I’ve dedicated the majority of the past 10 years of my life to the Guardians trilogy, & I’m not abandoning them or the thousands of people who worked on them at the 11th hour. The world won’t end if you love both.”
