James Gunn Says He Would Never Direct An ‘Avengers’ Film

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has said that he would never direct an Avengers film for Marvel Studios.

Before the Russo Brothers signed on to direct what was originally Avengers: Infinity War parts one and two, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was rumored to be the director of the two movies. Following Endgame, it’s unclear when the next Avengers film will come out, but Gunn is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to close out his Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy.

The Russo Brothers have said that they would be open to directing another Avengers film, especially if it was following the Secret Wars storyline. During an Instagram Story Q&A, James Gunn was asked if he would ever do an Avengers film, to which he responded:

“I haven’t been asked, but I wouldn’t do it if I was.”

Here is the plot synopsis for Avengers: Endgame:

The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
