Gunn had an equally endearing response to the sweet gesture of his Marvel friends. He shared pictures of the scrapbook on Twitter with a long emotional caption. He thanked his friends for the gift. According to him, Marvel and DC fans have a lot in common. He considers himself as one of them. He also mentioned that it is possible to like one of the two more than the other, but that does not mean you have to pull one down for the other. The supposed rivalry between Marvel and DC only brings out the best in both and helps them dish out the best entertainment for fans. James Gunn ended with a motivating “Let’s go, team(s)”.

The Suicide Squad is set to hit theatres on August 6, 2021. No date is set for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, but a late 2021 or an early 2022 release seems likely.
