Director James Gunn Teases a Marvel Studios 'Thunderbolts' Movie

Last year Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn revealed that if he got to pick another Marvel movie he would like to make he would want to do the Thunderbolts. The Thunderbolts are a group of villains and anti-hero's that come together for the greater good. Of course the lineup has changed over the years including such villains like Red Hulk, The Punisher and Deadpool. Obviously the Marvel Studios line up would be specific to the characters Marvel owns...

Well with the recent announcement that Sony will release the very first villain spin-off team up movie The Sinister Six in 2016. A new door could possibly open with villain lead comic book films that we have to yet to see. Now James Gunn at the press junket for his next movie Guardians of the Galaxy reveals that Kevin Feige has said if Guardians turns out be a hit....Gunn can make any movie he wants at Marvel including Thunderbolts:
 "I will tell you, one time I was saying to Kevin [Feige], we were sitting on set together on one of the days he visited and I said, ‘You know, I really want to make Thunderbolts,' and he said, 'James, if Guardians does well you'll be able to do whatever you want.' So we'll see what happens."
If The Sinister Six is a hit at Sony expect a lot more villain movies or villain team-ups like The Thunderbolts or at DC The Suicide Squad! But first we need to get Punisher in the Marvel Cinematic Universe officially Mr. Gunn..
