While it is easy to dismiss that quote as just a gut doing his job and promoting his project, you know he means it. That’s because last time he was this enthusiastic about a project, we got Peacemaker. That show was one of the – if not the – best things Gunn has done. Gunn seems to have enjoyed PeaceMaker so much he is sticking with DC for more TV projects.
Will This Be Gunn’s Last Movies?
For Gunn, the special will mark quite the reunion more than five years after he last directed the Guardians cast, which includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, and Dave Bautista as the spacefaring heroes-for-hire trying to do good across the galaxy. For the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, it is unlikely we will get much gore or jokes about superheroes being intimate with fish, but that doesn’t take away from the beautiful promise of, say, Groot wearing a Christmas hat.
Later on in the interview, Gunn added: “As somebody who’s been doing this professionally for 30 years, almost, there is a family feeling about a television show that I get. And I have that with my Guardians, but I only get to see them every two-and-a-half years, you know? I mean, I see Chris all the time and stuff like that. But the workplace – I really like the more workplace feeling of a TV show.”
