James Gunn Tries To Clarify How Marvel And DC Establish Canon In Their Universes

After the huge success of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, James Gunn has become one of Hollywood’s most acclaimed directors as well as one of the most active filmmakers on social media. In addition to providing constant updates on the production status of his projects and answering questions and curiosities from his followers, he also shares some background on the production process of the films once in a while to deny some rumors that spread online.

Yesterday Twitter user Lylexxxx asked James Gunn for some clarification about the way in which production companies establish canon – a narrative principle that allows us to understand which fictitious events are relevant and can be considered “official” in a given context – in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe.

“Hey James Gunn just curious, when you write something into a script that would become canon for the DCEU, what is that process? Meaning, do you just submit a script and WB either says ok or no, or are there convos about it? Obv the cameos from Jason and Ezra required some talks,” she tweeted.

In response, the director of Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), The Suicide Squad (2021) and Peacemaker (2022) explained that both Marvel Studios and Warner Bros./DC want the best for their projects’ narrations, pointing out that fans and enthusiasts “overestimate” the concept of canon.

“People overestimate the interaction of both DC & Marvel around this stuff – most notes have to do with making the story better. Except in extremely rare situations (such as a legal situation or if there’s a contradiction in another project I don’t know about), it doesn’t come up,” he replied.

James Gunn’s newest work – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been scheduled for May 5, 2023. The movie will star Chris Pratt as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel as Groot, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Will Poulter as Adam Warlock, Chukwudi Iwuji as High Evolutionary, Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha, Sean Gunn as Kraglin and Sylvester Stallone as Stakar Ogord.
