Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has claimed on Twitter that he was "given the opportunity" to direct a DC Comics based movie.
"I’ve been given the opportunity," Gunn said on twitter in response to a fan asking if he'd ever direct a DC film. "But who knows. Maybe?"
Gunn was careful not to rule out the possibility of directing a DC film, but that doesn't mean any specific offer or film has ever been in the works with the filmmaker and DC. Gunn made the same claim in 2016, saying "I've had opportunities to make DC films, but I haven't said yes to anything, and not sure I would at this time," in a fan Q&A on his personal Facebook page.
Gunn has given no indication about which properties he may or may not have met with Warner Bros. about, or been offered a chance to direct.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been confirmed as Gunn's next film for Marvel Studios.
