James Gunn has been replying to many of the trollers and has shut up quite a few salty fans since his newly appointed position. After holding it a secret for a long time, James Gunn revealed that Kevin Bacon was a part of the MCU. The protagonist Peter Quill had also mentioned several times that Footloose was his favorite movie. Kevin Bacon served as the protagonist in the movie. Although his role in the special hasn’t been confirmed yet, the actor will surely do something out of the ordinary considering James Gunn.

It was earlier reported that James Gunn will be done with the MCU as soon as the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise ends. The third part will also serve as the final part of James Gunn’s trilogy. Till now, there have been no such confirmed movies in the MCU where James Gunn is set as a director. It seems that following the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the director will probably solely focus on the DC side of things.

James Gunn essentially revived The Suicide Squad franchise by being the director of the 2021 released movie, The Suicide Squad. The director then associated himself with making the Peacemaker series which featured John Cena at the helm. James Gunn is truly a big name in the film-making business and DC acquiring him will certainly improve their situation amidst times of turmoil and chaos.
