James Gunn Would Consider Directing a Marvel Netflix Episode

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" director James Gunn revealed he might be open to trying his hand at one of Marvel's small-screen projects, specifically an episode of a Netflix series.

"If it was in the right circumstances, maybe, but it would never be one that was preexisting," he told fans during a Facebook Live Q&A. "It would have to be the pilot of a new show."

As exciting as that possibility might be for fans of Gunn and his work, the Marvel/Netflix schedule makes it unlikely a pilot would open up anytime soon: The first season of "Iron Fist" is complete, production is already under way on "The Punisher," and cameras are expected to roll on "The Defenders" next month. After that, we can  expect additional seasons of "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage."

Gunn is busy with post-production of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," which opens May 5. The filmmaker has said he's unsure whether he will return to direct a third "Guardians" due to the time commitment and pressure required.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" will bring back all the lovable misfits from the first movie as the intergalactic team investigates the mystery of Peter Quill's parentage.

The film stars returning cast members Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn and Glenn Close, joined by Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.
