James Gunn prods more spinoffs of DCEU after Peacemaker. However his most late projects have been for the DC Extended Universe, the superhero auteur is best known for his Guardians of the Galaxy series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the wake of being momentarily discharged from the creation in 2018, Gunn is presently working diligently on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, set for release in 2023, as well as a Guardians-themed occasion special coming to Disney+ in 2022.
Presently, with just a month to go until Peacemaker debuts on HBO Max, Gunn hints that some more The Suicide Squad spinoffs may be coming. In response to a fan asking about the possibility of more shows after Peacemaker, Gunn answered with a smirking emoticon joined by a GIF of a mischievous raccoon secretively inscribed “he, he, he, he, he, he, he.” Check out the trade that happened on Twitter underneath:
While Gunn’s GIF decision promptly brings to mind the Guardians of the Galaxy character voiced by Bradley Cooper, Rocket Raccoon, he was specifically asked about DC spinoffs, not Marvel. In the replies, Gunn even addressed the point that his post may be alluding to a Rocket series, saying “That would be a truly strange The Suicide Squad spinoff.” While there have been rumors in the past of a Guardians of the Galaxy spinoff based on Rocket, nothing at any point solidified, so that doesn’t seem, by all accounts, to be the thing Gunn is indicating here.
Gunn as of late affirmed he’s fostering another DC project past Peacemaker, and this post seems to suggest it is another spinoff of The Suicide Squad. In terms of which characters could be next in line for a solo trip, Gunn has expressed interest numerous times in a stand-alone task for Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. Whether or not these spinoff ideas at any point come into fulfillment will probably rely on the success of Peacemaker.
