The Suicide Squad: James Gunn Shares Gifts From Marvel And Urges Comic Fans To Unite

The Suicide Squad

The concept of pointless feuds isn’t really a new one. We’ve seen it take shape in countless different ways over the years, and fans of comics, video games, tech, movies, and everything in between have been especially guilty of this. You need only look at fans of stuff like Marvel and DC comics and movies to see the vitriol take hold and tear fans apart.

And yet, there are plenty of creatives who have switched between the two comic giants. Brian Michael Bendis recently left Marvel for DC, plenty of actors have made the leap between properties, and now, James Gunn has his feet squarely in both camps with properties like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Suicide Squad.

Gunn has started production on the latter film, and as a show of good faith, Marvel Studios has sent him a gift.

“Starting production on #TheSuicideSquad, I received perhaps the coolest & sweetest start-of-production gift ever, along with a note of how excited they are for the movie from Kevin, Lou, Victoria, Mary & Jonathan at @marvelstudios”

Gunn went on to urge fans to quit the silly feud between the Marvel and DC fan camps, saying:

“As I’ve said so many times, at the end of the day, Marvel & DC fans have a lot more in common than they do not. I am now & have been for almost all my life, both.

“Maybe you like one more than the other – that’s cool – but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them all or that you have to tear the other down.

“I know I & my partners at both Marvel & DC believe what’s good for one studio is generally good for all: spurring each other on daily with heartfelt, spectacular & innovative entertainment that keeps audiences around the world loving movies based on or inspired by sequential art.

“#marvel #dc Let’s go, team(s). ❤️”
