Fanning’s answer was surprising but also an exciting prospect. One that could lead to a collision of two epic franchises.

“There is James Gunn who wrote the Scooby Doo movies and is the President of DC as you know so if there is anyone you can bring this back to life in some way shape or form it’s probably him and I am very willing to involved if that is what they want to do.”

Fanning then added, “it would be fun to do some crossover between those characters and Scooby Doo and solving a mystery or whatever.”

The Scooby-Doo voice actor even teased the return of the original cast but says there is always room to bring in a younger group of actors. “Why not. There are worlds that would be really interesting for the Scooby Doo gang to explore. I’d be happy if Matt, Linda, Freddie and Sarah came back but not sure if they’re up for that. There is a lot of talent out there.”
