DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn has long engaged with fans on Twitter, both as the director of films such as: Guardians of the Galaxy and Warner Bros. in his new executive role at Discovery. But some of her recent responses have taken a sharper tone after fans began reacting to the news that Patty Jenkins’ show Wonder Woman 3 didn’t move forward and, more specifically, revealed that Henry Cavill will not be returning as Superman.
“One of the things that Peter and I were aware of when we took over as head of DC Studios was a certain minority of people online that could be loud and unfriendly, to say the least,” Gunn tweeted today. at noon: . “Nobody likes to be hounded or called names, but frankly, we’ve been through a lot worse. A disrespectful complaint will never and will never affect our actions.”
Many on Twitter questioned Gunn’s use of the word “minority”, arguing that most fans don’t fit the bill.
Gunn reiterated that his decisions with DC CEO James Safran were based on the story, which Gunn himself is writing for the next Superman film.
“Our choices for the DCU are based on what we think is best for the story and best for the DC characters who have been around for nearly 85 years. Maybe these choices are great, maybe not, but they were made with a genuine heart and honesty and always with the story in mind.”
About two weeks ago, Gunn responded to the backlash WW3: “We know we’re not going to make every person happy every step of the way, but we can promise that everything we do is in service of STORY and the DC HEROES we know you love and cherish our whole lives.”
Gunn also took to the comments of his post today and responded to specific claims.
“Who knows if it’s (so) true, but recasting all the main DCEU characters but keeping some? It will be interesting to see how the characters/actors of Peacemaker and SS fare and others don’t. (sic) Especially when they all interacted (sic) together.”
The head of the DC replied: We don’t remake all but Suicide Squad.
