What would a crossover between the Suicide Squad and Scooby-Doo look like? We have no idea, but director James Gunn has thought about it. This reveal came after fans expressed how much they’d like to see Scooby-Doo/Guardians of the Galaxy. Legal licensing issues probably make that impossible. But, it may be possible on the flip side of things over at Warner Bros. After all, in an animated sense; Scooby-Doo has teamed up with Batman and Robin before.
Scooby & the Guardians might be unlikely considering it's Warners/Disney. But, you know, an animated Mystery Ink/The Suicide Squad film is always possible. https://t.co/gK782sXk5X

Gunn was the writer for two Scooby-Doo films. This is what prompted fans even asking about a possible crossover. Gunn has expressed last year that he had originally wanted to make Scooby-Doo PG-13, but it ultimately was made into a PG film:
“The movie was originally meant to be PG-13 and was cut down to PG after like 3 parents were outraged at a test screening in Sacramento. The studio decided to go a more family friendly route. Language and jokes and sexual situations were removed, including a kiss between Daphne and Velma. Cleavage was CGI’d over. But, thankfully, the farting remained. I thought at the time the rating change was a mistake,” he continued. “I felt like a lot of teens came out for the first film and didn’t get what they wanted (and didn’t come back for the sequel). But today I don’t know. So many young kids loved those movies, which is pretty cool.”
Scoob! Has been the latest venture in the Scooby-Doo franchise, which was obviously kid friendly. If you’re looking for a more adult version of these characters, I would suggest turning to the comics as there’s been some interesting stuff going on there.
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
