'Justice League' Movie News: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Director James Gunn Says Marvel Has 'More Of An Idea' Than DC With Upcoming Schedule [VIDEO]
It looks like Marvel may not be playing nice as recent comments made by one of their all-star directors hints that the studio isn't at all threatened by DC and their upcoming slate of superhero movies.
In an interview with IGN on Thursday, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn commented on the DC universe and how he thinks it will all shake out over the next few years.
"The truth is, it's a list of titles, and if they're done well they'll be good," the director said. "If they aren't, they won't be good. But I think we have a little bit more of an idea of what we're getting with Marvel," he said.
"I mean, we know the actors, we know the characters -- we've seen movies with these characters. You have some idea of what's going on already. We've told a big part of the story. With DC, they haven't told the story yet."
While that may seem harsh, it wasn't like Gunn was outwardly bashing DC. Instead, it seemed like he was just saying the facts: they have nothing to show yet and there is no reason to comment.
As for the likeness of both Thanos (for Marvel) and Darkseid (for DC), Gunn said that while Marvel has introduced their big bad first, it would be "pretty weird" to see DC going with Darkseid since he looks so similar. "That would be a strange choice," he said.
It is ironic since in the comics, Darkseid was created first. But with the Marvel movies ruling right now, all comic lore goes out the window when it comes to keeping up with the studio.
