Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has shared an iconic photo of some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most prominent directors at a discussion roundtable.
In the wake of all of the exciting news surrounding the MCU, Gunn shared the image to his Instagram. The photo features Gunn himself -- who helmed both Guardians films -- alongside Peyton Reed (Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp), Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame), Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Iron Man 2), Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) and Joss Whedon (Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron).
"Just came across this photo from the Marvel Directors’ roundtable we recorded around Infinity War time," Gunn writes. The roundtable discussion was featured as a part of the special features on Infinity War's home video release.
Gunn is working towards the development of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. During Comic-Con International in San Diego, he confirmed it takes place before the events of Thor: Love and Thunder. However, according to his brother Sean Gunn, the film's script has not yet been finalized. Guardians 3 also does not yet have an official release date.
In the meantime, Gunn is working on The Suicide Squad, which he recently revealed the cast for. Much like the Guardians films, the upcoming DC reboot will be both written and directed by Gunn.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters Aug. 6, 2021. Several cast members from 2016's Suicide Squad will reprise their roles, including Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang. Also joining the cast are David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Joaquin Cosio, Nathan Fillion, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Idris Elba and Michael Rooker.
