Marvel's Kevin Feige regrets whitewashing in Doctor Strange

  Marvel's Kevin Feige regrets whitewashing in Doctor Strange "It was a wake-up call."The 2016 film received heavy backlash over the casting of The Ancient One, a Tibetan man in the comics. The source material's portrayal leaned into racist tropes, and so Marvel decided to cast Tilda Swinton, a white woman, as Stephen Strange's mentor instead – which came with its own problems.

James Gunn has said that he ' s had talks with the heads of both Marvel and DC about the possibility of a crossover . "I’ve casually talked to the powers-that-be at both Marvel & DC about it. I would love for it to happen. I don’t think it’s likely, but I don’t think it’s an impossibility either." However, Gunn is personally not a fan of crossovers for the sake of them and would rather focus on the story and characters, rather than inserting various cameos and references

James Gunn says he spoke to Marvel and DC Comics executives about making a potential crossover film between Guardians of the Galaxy and Suicide Squad. Though Gunn mentions that he just " casually talked to the powers-that-be " about the crossover , he goes on to say that while it' s very unlikely to actually happen, it isn't exactly an impossibility either. Gunn also followed up his tweet stating that he prefers a strong story rather than seeing constant crossovers and mashups.

James Gunn has disclosed that he “casually” spoke to people in charge at Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and DC regarding a big blockbuster crossover.

“I would love for it to happen,” he wrote during a Q&A on Twitter, adding that he doesn’t think it’s likely but at the same time he doesn’t think it’s an impossibility, either.

The 50-year-old Guardians of the Galaxy director also mentioned that “constantly seeing crossovers & mashups is less enchanting” to him than “a strong story.”

In a subsequent tweet, he revealed that he finds it “disconcerting” that many people seem more interested in “crossovers, cameos, references & post-credit scenes than they do the actual story & characters of a specific film”.

I like people to know when I'm drinking coffee, so I joined Twitter. Along this lines, do you think there' s even a remote chance we ever see a big blockbuster crossover between the MCU and DC ? I find it disconcerting at times that many folks seem more interested in crossovers , cameos

Marvel and DC are separate multiverses inside the omniverse.

“When making a film I spend 99.9 per cent of my time thinking about story and character and 0.1 per cent the rest,” he wrote.

Gunn has previously directed superhero films for both MCU and DC Comics. He directed The Suicide Squad for DC and Guardians of the Galaxy for MCU.

When a fan asked the director who would win if he were given the green light and complete creative control over a Guardians of the Galaxy vs Suicide Squad movie. He replied saying: “The Fans.”

Another fan questioned Gunn about post-credit scenes in Suicide Squad, to which he replied that the movie does have a post-credit scene and that he “loves” them.

“I think they give the audience a reason to sit through all the folks who worked so hard on the show. But they’re always an afterthought, a snack, not the main course,” he wrote.

There have been crossovers between DC and Marvel in comic books before. The first time characters from both universes were used together was in Superman vs The Amazing Spider-Man comic published in the Seventies.

The Suicide Squad director James Gunn teases how his version compares to original .
This one's got a creepy weasel in it.Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis and Joel Kinnaman may all be returning in their respective roles, but Gunn has enlisted a seriously powerful ensemble cast to separate his vision from David Ayer's critical bomb – not to mention a "war caper" vibe.
