A new day dawns with a new name at DC Studios, and James Gunn plays a huge role while steering the ship. After being named co-chairman of the company alongside producer Peter Safran, he’s making some serious moves. Most of them like her Deciding not to move forward with Henry Cavill as Superman, received rave reviews from fans. Gunn recently drew the ire of some commentators after he stated that some of his Guardians of the Galaxy Partners will “probably” participate of his future superhero projects. He has now addressed the backlash he faced over the sentiment.
While he’s making plans at DC, James Gunn is set to release at the same time Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3:, the final installment in his Marvel Cinematic Universe trilogy. In an interview, Gunn talked about his relationship with his cast and whether they would work together again in the future. The filmmaker was candid, saying that he would collaborate with them separately down the road, and that it would probably happen “in my other work.” Some fans seemed to balk at the idea of Gunn reuniting with the cast for another superhero-branded performance. This led the writer/director to drop the answer, whereby he sidestepped any kind of negative connotations surrounding a potential reunion;
He makes a few fair points, the first of which is that it will take a lot of actors to fill out this new DC movie franchise. So there’s sure to be plenty of fresh faces taking on both beloved and lesser-known characters. Besides, it’s definitely not a secret that Super The director likes to use past colleagues and usually finds the right roles for them. So if any of his MCU cohorts join him in his new job, chances are they’ll be the right people for the job.
This last one Twitter: James Gunn’s post further shows how he’s made it a point to be as transparent as possible when it comes to his aspirations at the Warner Bros.-owned studio. Shot alone in the last month Rumors about Matt Reeves have been denied Batman privilege and provided clarification of the situation Wonder Woman 3. He said that too Superman is ‘a big priority, if not the biggest’ for an entertainment company.
Many seem especially interested to see what he will do with Man of Steel moving forward. James Gunn only provided hints about his ideas, the biggest detail is that he’s writing a story about a younger version of the hero. Some people assume that too Grant Morrison’s work will serve as inspiration for a reboot, though that has yet to be confirmed. Following him Guardians comments, however, fans’ biggest worry is whether an MCU alum like Chris Pratt could finally play Supes. It’s not entirely impossible, but it honestly seems pretty unlikely.
I have no doubt that whatever the new boss plans to do will make sense and that he will continue to be meticulous about casting. What if it means? Guardians of the Galaxy stars will be added to the mix, so be it. They have worked magic in the superhero genre thus far and can surely produce more with characters from DC’s vast catalog.
