James Gunn would think of a crossover between ‘Scooby-Doo’ and ‘Suicide Squad’.
James Gunn would like to mix the universes of ‘Scooby-Doo’ and ‘Suicide Squad’ in a film.
The director, who is in charge of the second installment of ‘Suicide Squad’ and whose release is scheduled for 2021, went to Twitter to answer questions from fans. If he explained that a crossover between ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘Scooby-Doo’ could not be done for licensing problems, he nevertheless revealed that mixing the universes of ‘Suicide Squad’ and ‘ Scooby-Doo ‘could be considered.
In 2018 came out a crossover entitled ‘Scooby-Doo and Batman: The Alliance of heroes’, in which Scooby-Doo and his band teamed up with Batman and other heroes of the DC Comics universe to face a new enemy.
When a fan proposed a crossover between ‘Scooby-Doo’ and the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, Gunn replied: “It seems very unlikely for licensing reasons. However, a film with the Mystery Machine and the characters from Suicide Squad would still be possible. ”
Gunn had written the script for ‘Scooby-Doo’, released in 2002, and its sequel ‘Scooby-Doo 2: monsters go wild’, released two years later.
The animated film ‘Scooby!’, Which was released this year in cinemas, had received PG-13 certification (prohibited for children under 13), but this had to be modified following the anger of some parents.
He explained: “The film was supposed to have PG-13 certification initially but it was downgraded to PG because several parents complained about it during a test session in Sacramento. The studio decided to opt for a film that could appeal to the whole family.
“Some gritty jokes and some scenes involving sex have been removed, including a kiss between Daphne and Vera. Fortunately, we were able to keep the farts. ”
However, the American director admitted that he was disappointed with this change in certification.
He added, “I think changing the certification was not a good choice. I had the feeling that many young people had left the room without having seen what they wanted to see (and therefore they did not want to see more). But today, I don’t really know. Many children enjoyed the film. ”
