James Gunn Reveals Hopes For RAVAGERS TV Show In The MCU; Confirms He Wants To Do PEACEMAKER Season 2
The Suicide Squad director James Gunn has revealed that he'd love to spotlight the Ravagers in a potential Disney+ series while confirming that he hopes to return for a second season of Peacemaker.
When Vol. 2 was released, there were rumours that Marvel Studios planned to have Gunn spearhead an entire slate of cosmic adventures, with the Ravagers we met in that sequel a possible priority. Some big names, like Sylvester Stallone and Michelle Yeoh, were enlisted to play those "original" Guardians, and the director has now said he'd love to see them get their own Disney+ series.
"I always thought The Ravagers would be a great show," he said on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast. "Whether that was with Sly Stallone's Ravagers or even more in-depth with just the pirates and what they were doing. I told Kevin Feige that when he first visited set when we were on the Ravagers ship for Guardians 1, I said we should make a Ravagers show. He said if this movie's a hit you can do whatever you want. Still no Ravagers show, so I don't know what happened."
Marvel Studios is putting together a huge slate of TV shows for Disney+, so we can only hope this becomes a reality somewhere down the line. In the meantine, Gunn appears to be eyeing a return to the small screen for an eventual second season of HBO Max's Peacemaker (which launches next January).
"The truth is, I'm awful busy," the director said of that possible Ravagers TV show. "I want to do a Peacemaker Season 2 so that's the only thing I'm committed to if it happens right now."
This is a character Gunn clearly has big plans for beyond The Suicide Squad, and it definitely sounds like he's keen to do more in the DCEU after his return to the MCU for the next Guardians movie.
