James Gunn Was Offered DC Movies: Talks Shazam, Batgirl, Suicide Squad & More

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 director James Gunn reveals he was offered to direct DC movies, though exactly when is unclear.

Gunn recently participated in a Facebook Q&A where he mentioned his favorite DC characters he would like to direct.

“I thought there was some amazing action sequences in Man of Steel, but I haven’t seen the other two films [Batman Vs Superman and Suicide Squad]. I’ve had opportunities to make DC films, but I haven’t said yes to anything, and not sure I would at this time,” Gunn said. “I’ve talked before about which projects appeal to me the most IF I was into making one, and it’s always Shazam and Metal Men and Swamp Thing and [Jonah] Hex and a few other DC IPs I’ve enjoyed for a great deal of my life.”

Gunn also let it be known that the Cassandra Cain version of Batgirl is one of his favorite female superheroes, and he talked about the fact that Suicide Squad topped his 2014 Guardians of the Galaxy movie at the August box office.

“It beat us first weekend,” Gunn said. “We almost made more money second weekend. And there is a very likely chance we’ll make more money at the end of the day (we made more domestically than BvS even). The great thing about Guardians wasn’t that it came in and made a ton of money but that so many people went and told their friends about the movie, who went to see it, and that people kept coming back again and again. By the time we were in the later weeks, we were making more money than any comic book film EVER, which was such an amazing feeling for those of us who put our hearts into it.”

Regarding the DC movies, Dwayne Johnson is attached to the Shazam movie as both a producer and the villain Black Adam; Justice League Dark (Swamp Thing) looks to have been axed in favor of an animated movie; Jonah Hex did just appear on DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow last season, and a Metal Men movie was said to be in the works a few years ago directed by Barry Sonnefeld, which looks to have never gotten off the ground floor or is still waiting for the full green light.

James Gunn also said Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will probably get made, but he’s unsure if he will return to direct the third movie.

Watch: Swamp Thing Animation Test For Live-Action Justice League Dark Movie

Following the Justice League Dark animated sneak peek, now test animation featuring Swamp Thing for a live-action Justice League Dark movie has hit the net.

At one time, WB was going to go forward with Guillermo Del Toro’s live-action Justice League Dark movie; however, now with the animated version coming out, it’s thought the live-action project is DOA.

Director Joseph Khan, known for Torque, Detention and Power/Rangers, posted a video on Vimeo of a Swamp Thing animation test he used to pitch Justice League Dark to WB.

“I pitched on Dark Universe before it became an animated movie. Here’s an 8 second test of Swamp Thing I designed,” Khan added.

At one time it was said Colin Farrell was going to play John Constantine in the JLD movie, with Ben Mendelsohn as the villain Anton Arcane.

Matt Ryan, the Constantine from the TV series, voices the character in the animated Justice League Dark movie.
