What DC Comics characters could the Guardians of the Galaxy cast play? Here are some do’s and don’ts when casting them in the DCU.
James Gunn has been in the headlines a lit over the past year, particularly since he and Peter Safran took over as co-chairmen and CEOs of DC Studios. Among the announcements they made are what movies and shows will be the focus of DC Comics/Warner Bros in the near future, with titles like The Brave and the Bold, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, and Booster Gold coming in the future. The DC Studios reset hasn’t been met with a 100% positivity. However, if you’ve followed Gunn’s work with Marvel Studios, you’ll have faith in what he’s doing because he did a fantastic job.
Gunn took the Guardians of the Galaxy (a Marvel Comics team that were not familiar to a mainstream audience) and turned them into a billion-dollar franchise. Because of what the franchise did for him, he hasn’t forgotten the cast that made him popular. So much so that he plans to work with them again.
In an interview with Empire, Gunn said that he was close to all of the Guardians of the Galaxy cast saying, “This cast are like my family.” He also went on to say, “But I also know I will work again with all those people individually again”, suggesting he could do so at DC Studios. Considering how successful the Guardians franchise was, this makes sense. Plus, if the Guardians of the Galaxy did so well, working with the cast again is a smart move. The question is who would they play? Here are some DC Comics characters the cast of the GotG should and should *not* play.
