James Gunn, the director of the next Marvel Cinematic Universe film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, has responded to a fan’s post about him directing Loki season 2. The Suicide Squad, directed by Gunn, was released in theatres and on HBO Max in August. Despite positive reviews from reviewers and audiences, the picture underperformed at the box office. After being sacked (and then soon rehired) from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Gunn took on this project as his next project. The release date for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was not altered when Marvel Studios shuffled certain movie release dates.
After Loki grabbed the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame, the first season of Loki explored what happened to him. This launched him on a merry chase into a different timeline while also allowing him to explore the enormous Marvel cosmos. The Time Variance Authority apprehended him and compelled him to team up with Agent Mobius to stop a version Loki dubbed Sylvie. Loki had to deal with his and Sylvie’s encounter with He Who Remains before the end of the programme, which resulted in the multiverse collapsing. Following Loki, the MCU appears to be shifting its focus to the Marvel multiverse, with films like Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness dealing with the subject.
Gunn Has Talked About Directing Loki
Now that the show’s previous director, Kate Herron, is leaving down, Gunn has expressed interest in directing Loki season 2. Gunn reacted to a tweet from a fan who asked if he would take the position. He replied to the fan, claiming he was too busy to locate Herron’s replacement, but that he trusted Marvel Studios to do so.

Loki’s direction was one of the most lauded aspects of his performance. Herron truly brought all of the show’s elements together to help create a unique MCU show. Gunn is known for having a particular style, and the show has one as well. Because it deals with the cosmic aspects of the MCU, the programme would be a perfect fit for him. Gunn has had a significant role in establishing the MCU’s cosmic aspect, so Loki would be exactly up his alley. However, given his present commitment to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it’s understandable that he won’t be able to direct.
