During an interview with Variety to promote The Belko Experiment, writer/director James Gunn discussed his position in the Marvel vs. DC feud. He said: “I just don’t find any room in my headspace for thinking my movies are superior or inferior to someone else’s. I really just think about how can I make, for instance right now, how can I make ‘Guardians Vol. 2’ the greatest spectacle film of all time? That’s all I care about so that’s what I concentrate on. I don’t really think about Marvel versus DC. And also any time a Marvel movie comes out that isn’t as good as I wished it was or anytime a DC movie comes out that isn’t as I wished it was, I’m disappointed because I love these characters. I grew up reading Marvel and DC comics. I want them all to be good.”
Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will hit theaters May 5, 2017.
