James Gunn revealed what he was most excited about when working with DC Films and how Suicide squad will be different from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Suicide squad It is scheduled to launch in a month and the excitement surrounding the project is second to none. The team-up supervillain movie looks like a lot of fun and is probably the most colorful thing DC Films has on its list, with director James Gunn having the time of his life with the project. But with the color and fun came the comparisons to another of Gunn’s films: Guardians of the Galaxy.
In 2019, Heroic Hollywood visited the set of Suicide squad and I spoke with James Gunn about how he got on board the project, as well as the Guardians of the Galaxy comparisons. “Well, I mean, it was, you know, basically DC came in and said, ‘Hey, what do you want to do? Anything? “And at first, honestly, I didn’t think it was going to be the Suicide Squad,” Gunn told reporters on set. “I was playing with some different ideas of some different DC properties, and this was the one that just took off and I fell in love with this particular story that we are telling right now. And I fell in love with some of the characters and the way we can do it and being able to tell a supervillain movie like this in a completely different way. “
With James Gunn directing a Marvel and DC Comics movie, there would surely be some comparisons between Suicide squad other Guardians of the Galaxy, but don’t worry because the two are totally different things. While on set, Gunn revealed what makes the two movies different. “It really is a war movie. I mean, it’s just a more grounded story. It’s a sad story. And one of the funniest things I think at the end of the day, even though we did kill in Guardians of the Galaxy, in this movie, it’s really about you not knowing who they’re going to kill, ”Gunn said. “And I think with Guardians, you start off knowing that these are, you know, guys who can have different problems, but at the end of the day, they’re all really good people. And that is not the case with this. This is a much more complicated story. Some of these characters may end up being good, some of them definitely aren’t, and some of them, most of them, are somewhere in between different shades of gray. “
