James Gunn is writing and directing the new ‘The Suicide Squad’ in the DCEU, which stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, and others. DC fans are super excited to see what colours Gunn brings to the squad. However, well in advance of completing ‘The Suicide Squad’, James Gunn announced a new project ‘Peacemaker’ for HBO Max.

James Gunn to delay ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3’ for ‘Peacemaker’?
James Gunn directed DC’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ is scheduled to release on August 6, 2021. Previously, it was rumoured that the movie might be delayed due to the pandemic restrictions. However, during the filming restrictions, James Gunn revealed that the film is in post-production and won’t be delayed.
But what was delayed was MCU’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3’. GOTG Vol 3 was delayed initially when Marvel and Disney fired Gunn from the director’s seat over some old controversial tweets.
Meanwhile, DC and Warner Bros. grabbed the opportunity and hired James Gunn to create ‘The Suicide Squad’. Later, amid the protest and rage from the cast of GOTG and the fans, Disney had to rehire James Gunn.

However, this led to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3’ getting delayed, as James Gunn could begin working on the MCU project only after he completes ‘The Suicide Squad’. Fans were extremely disappointed. But for the fact that James Gunn was back as the creator of the project, it was a worthy trade-off.
However, a recent announcement by James Gunn regarding the new HBO project ‘Peacemaker’ has worried the fans of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. Gunn announced the new project and allotted it to the dates before GOTG Vol 3. This has fans freaking out all over the internet. Fans believe that this will lead to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3’ getting further delayed.
Gunn announces ‘The Suicide Squad’ spinoff
Recently, James Gunn took to Twitter to announce a new HBO Max project which is a character spin-off to ‘The Suicide Squad’ Gunn is directing.
James Gunn wrote:
‘Peacemaker’ is going to be an eight-episode series created by James Gunn for HBO Max. John Cena, who plays the character in ‘The Suicide Squad’, will be reprising his role as the peace-loving superhero in the spin-off series.
While it stunned the DC fans, including us, it worried the MCU fans, again including us. It’s a bitter-sweet feeling at the moment. ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3’ has already had its share of injustice, and if James Gunn decides to delay it further for ‘Peacemaker’, then it definitely calls for a WW3.
However, fortunately, that’s not the case. We know Gunn loves Guardians and Rocket Raccoon more than anything, and he has clarified that the movie won’t be delayed for ‘Peacemaker’.
GOTG Vol 3 won’t be delayed due to ‘Peacemaker’?
James Gunn has clarified that ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3’ won’t be delayed due to ‘Peacemaker’. Indeed, he will be working on ‘Peacemaker’ after ‘The Suicide Squad’ and before GOTG3, but it will be during the time allotted to him between the two movies.
A fan asked on Twitter in reply to James Gunn’s ‘Peacemaker’ tweet: “Will working on this delay Guardians at all? Selfish question. Looking forward to SS and this. Just can’t wait to see Groot again!”.
James Gunn replied: “I’m doing #Peacemaker in the time always allotted between #TheSuicideSquad & #GotGVol3. Normally I would have been taking more of a break in this space but it’s COVID, I’m stuck at home, so I wrote a TV series.”
However, even after clarifying this much, fans weren’t certain of Gunn’s intention towards GOTG Vol 3. Another fan tweeted to Gunn saying, “I can’t believe you’re taking up another project. You should be starting with Guardians3 right after The Suicide Squad. You’ve already delayed the movie for like ever.”
To this, Gunn replied rather specifically. He tweeted: “I haven’t delayed it a single day. It’s been on the exact same schedule it’s been on since I was rehired.”
So, there you go MCU and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ fans. Gunn has clarified that GOTG Vol 3 isn’t going to get affected by ‘Peacemaker’.
While we can’t bear any further delays for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, we are also dying to see James Gunn blowing up DC with his magic in ‘The Suicide Squad’ and ‘Peacemaker’.
