Although the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be the last iteration of the team as we know it, director and co-CEO of DC Studios James Gunn teased that the crew could join him at DC at some point.
Talking to Empire MagazineGunn – who directed the third part of Guardians of the Galaxy franchise before moving to DC – praised Guardians cast and compare them to family. Gunn also teased that he knows he’ll be working with them in the future at some point, before joking that it might be at his “second job,” referring to his new role as co-head of DC Studios .
“This cast is like my family,” Gunn said. “I can’t tell you how close I am to Chris Pratt and Pom [Klementieff] and Dave [Bautista] and Zoe [Saldaña] and Karen [Gillan]. But I also know that I want to work again with all those people individually again. Probably at my other job.”
At the moment, the future of the DC Universe is relatively unknown, so it’s not impossible that Pratt and the others could find themselves working in it. While the plot of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 isn’t exactly known either, most of its core stars have all been very open about the fact that they won’t be returning to the series, calling the third film the last time we’ll see this iteration of the team together.
While much of the future of the DCU remains a mystery, Gunn recently announced that Henry Cavill would be leaving the role of Superman and that Gunn would write a new one Superman movie. In addition, several notable cameos have been removed from The lightning and Wonder Woman 3 is no longer under development. There are also reports that Jason Momoa will no longer be Aquaman and will instead be recast as another DC character.
