James Gunn is the first and only one filmmaker so far get the chance to receive directing credits from both Marvel and DC universe.
Director James Gunn finds himself a space in working in Marvel and DC Universe. He briefly explains the difference in working in both studios with the recent interview of THR. Here is what he shares about it:
“I do find, because of the ability to do different stuff in the DC multiverse, it’s fun. They’re starting to really resemble their comic books,”. “The Marvel Universe has always been a little more cohesive, and DC has always had more great single runs. They had The Dark Knight Returns. They had Watchmen. They had The Killing Joke. They had Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing. The fact that they did Joker, which is a totally different type of movie, that to me is cool. I’m very excited about Matt’s movie [The Batman]. They’re getting some really good filmmakers involved. They’re always going to be hit or miss — I just don’t want them to get boring.”
Honest to God, I can't remember anyone at either Marvel or DC ever condemning the other company. I think there's probably slightly less competition between Marvel & DC than between Marvel or DC & all other movies. After all, we are in very similar boats, relatively speaking. https://t.co/dlmoSfDfsT— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 26, 2020
