James Gunn Posts Suicide Squad Pics and Love for DC and Marvel

-

Today, James Gunn posted some cast pictures from the upcoming film The Suicide Squad on his Instagram page, as well as a scrapbook he received from co-workers at Marvel Studios. You can check out the posts below. In the first one, he spoke about his love for both Marvel and DC, and how he loves both franchises. The second features a cast photo from after a screening of the new Warner Bros./DC film Joker.

In the first post he says, “Starting production on #TheSuicideSquad, I received perhaps the coolest and sweetest start-of-production gift ever, along with a note of how excited they are for the movie from Kevin, Lou, Victoria, Mary and Jonathan at @marvelstudios. They made me this incredible scrapbook of our journey so far on #GuardiansoftheGalaxy. It’s a thick tome packed with memories that brought a tear to my eye. As I’ve said so many times, at the end of the day, Marvel and DC fans have a lot more in common than they do not. I am now and have been for almost all my life, both. Maybe you like one more than the other – that’s cool – but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them all or that you have to tear the other down. I know that I and my partners at both Marvel and DC believe that what’s good for one studio is generally good for all: spurring each other on daily with heartfelt, spectacular, and innovative entertainment that keeps audiences around the world loving movies based on or inspired by sequential art.”
