Marvel and DC’s heroes might belong to entirely different universes, but Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn believes that it’s possible that heroes from the DC Extended Universe and heroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe might share the same space on the big screen someday.

Taking to Instagram, Gunn decided to take the time to answer questions from his fans about his upcoming projects. One of the filmmaker’s followers decided to ask Gunn whether he thought there was a chance that a DC vs Marvel movie would ever happen someday. It seems like the director doesn’t rule out the possibility.


James Gunn answers a question... hmmm? from r/marvelstudios


It doesn’t seem that much of a surprise seeing Gunn respond the way he did on Instagram. Not only did the filmmaker have the opportunity to direct films in the MCU, but he’s also just recently directed DC’s newest project, The Suicide Squad.

Gunn is the living representation that Marvel and DC can exist in the same place. If it's possible to see a Marvel filmmaker to take up projects in DC, then we won’t close our minds to the idea of DC vs Marvel movie either. After all, DC and Marvel fans would probably love the idea of seeing a versus film as well.

Sure, versus movies might not exist in the MCU or in the DCEU today, however, there have been quite a number of versus comics that have brought Marvel and DC heroes together. It would be pretty cool to see a versus movie come to life on the big screen.

Avengers: Endgame is available on Digital HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
