Ever since the firing of James Gunn and the postponement of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, fans have been curious about the film’s status where it rests on Marvel’s slate of future projects.

And soon after came the word that Gunn would be likely jumping to handle Suicide Squad 2 for DC Comics and Warner Bros, and needless to mention, fans were split.
However, Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige stays supportive of DC and Gunn, as he said during a red carpet interview at Golden Globes with MTV News.
“I went to see Aquaman last night and I really, really enjoyed it. And you know me, I’ve always supported [them],” admitted Feige. “I don’t see a rivalry, I see cool films being made. And one thing you know about James Gunn, he makes cool films.”
As far as Guardians Vol. 3 is considered, its still on hold, but Feige hasn’t stopped working on it yet.
“Guardians will happen. When, where, how? For a later time,” Feige added.
After rumours of the project’s cancellation came after Gunn’s firing, Feige confirmed that the film would be postponed at a screening event for Black Panther and Nebula actress Karen Gillan revealed that she has read the script but is still unsure if its present status.
“Our director won’t be with us any longer but we are excited to continue the Guardians of the Galaxy story and keep delivering to the fans,” Gillan told People Magazine. “That’s the most important thing. I don’t have any details as to when [the next Guardians film will come out] but there’s a script in existence.”
“I may have had a little teeny peek, but I can’t say anything,” she added.
On the other side of the field, some fans may have questioned Gunn’s involvement in Suicide Squad 2, but Warner Bros have already confirmed Gunn’s presence during an episode of DC Daily.
“It’s official that we have got a new member of the DC family: acclaimed writer/director James Gunn has been attached to write Suicide Squad 2,” said host Tiffany Smith. “Gunn is poised to bring a completely fresh take to the franchise after the first film was written and directed by David Ayer.”
