Long before James Gunn brought us some of the comic book films in existence, the Marvel and DC director is best known for his work on the live-action Scooby-Doo films from the early 2000s. Sure, they weren't box office juggernauts but it can't be denied that both films — Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed have fallen under the "cult classics" category throughout the years.

James Gunn hasn't shut down the idea of doing a third Scooby-Doo film featuring the returning cast of Matthew Lillard, Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Linda Cardellini but what if the project is set in the DC Extended Universe?

On Twitter, a fan caught the attention of the Guardians of the Galaxy director after he proposed the ambitious concept of the Scooby-Doo and The Suicide Squad franchises coming together for a wacky crossover. Normally, Gunn would turn down an idea from a fan if he thinks it's absurd but surprisingly, he seems to be down with the idea.

While he said that a potential crossover project isn't exactly on his list of priorities, it's not something that he would count out. He wrote: "I don’t see it being at the top of my queue but never say never."

On paper, the idea of Scoob's gang crossing paths with Task Force X sounds too silly but if there's anyone who can make such an ambitious project work, it's definitely Gunn. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing it happen even if it's a non-canon crossover.

The Suicide Squad is available to stream on HBO Max.
