James Gunn Would Direct a Marvel Netflix Show Under One Condition
After the debut of the Luke Cage exactly one month ago, there is just one more of the first wave of Marvel Netflix shows left, Iron Fist, which has been given a March 17 premiere date on the streaming service. After that, we know that the streaming service is currently in production on a Punisher spin-off, but no other shows have been officially announced yet. Today we learn that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 director James Gunn would be interested in directing an episode of a Marvel Netflix show, under the right condition.
James Gunn recently held a Facebook Live Q&A session, where he was asked if he'd ever consider directing a Marvel Netflix TV series. The filmmaker said he would consider it, but he wouldn't direct a show that has already debuted. Here's what he had to say below.
"If it was in the right circumstances, maybe, but it would never be one that was preexisting. It would have to be the pilot of a new show."
There was recently a report that the superhero studio recently shot four Marvel pilots in secret, but that report was shot down by Heroic Hollywood's Umberto Gonzalez. One of the shows that was reportedly shot was White Tiger, but we have never gotten any confirmation that show was even in development. Still, there are a number of other possible shows that James Gunn could direct.
We previously reported that Marvel is considering new shows based on Ghost Rider, Moon Knight and Blade, but none of those shows have been officially announced. Ghost Rider made his MCU debut on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this season, with Gabriel Luna playing Robbie Reyes. Take a look at James Gunn's Facebook Live video below as we wait for more details on Marvel's Netflix slate.
