James Gunn Teases "Secret" DC Project
James Gunn has recently broken the news that he is currently working on a secret TV project for DC as we speak. During an exclusive interview with Steven Weintraub (https://twitter.com/colliderfrosty) from Collider, Gunn broke the news that he will carry on working with Warner Bros. and DC after the release of the Peacemaker series. Although the acclaimed director didn’t reveal exactly what the upcoming project is, he was asked by Weintraub if he was involved in any more DC projects after Peacemaker and had this to say:
“You know, we’re stepping forward. It keeps happening. We’ll see what’s happening very shortly. I dealt with it last night and this morning.” Although when asked directly if the secret project would be a movie or TV show, Gunn said: “It’s TV, there you go”.
With the success of The Suicide Squad, Gunn was given free reigns to do what he’d like with a TV series for John Cena’s Peacemaker where he is producer and writer of the entire series whilst stepping into the director’s chair for some episodes too.

It is unclear if his secret project involves anymore of the characters used within The Suicide Squad however, Gunn has stated on numerous occasions that he’d love to explore the characters he used in the aforementioned Suicide Squad movie as we know that he has a soft spot for giving the more obscure comic characters the spotlight.
It is worth mentioning that Gunn stated he has been working on this project “this morning” meaning that this could be the next project in his career right after he wraps both Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3 and Guardians of The Galaxy Holiday Special which are currently in production.
It is a fantastic move to keep James Gunn on at Warner Bros. and continuing to develop more DC projects and we can’t wait to find out what this secret project is.
Peacemaker will debut its first three episodes on HBO Max on January 13, with new episodes arriving weekly. Catch the official trailer here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIdbMgGHlsQ
Guardians of The Galaxy Holiday Special is set to debut on Disney+ in December 2022 and Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3 is set to hit theatres in May 2023.
