DC fans aren’t happy with the direction the company could take in the next few years. After an extensive report was released yesterday suggesting the cancellation of Wonder Woman 3 and the potential goodbye to other flagship DCEU actors such as Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck or Jason Momoa, it is James Gunn, co-chairman of DC Studios, who makes a first statement about the reports.
The filmmaker behind the suicide squad Y pacemaker published an extensive thread on Twitter to try to calm the waters in the face of the fury of fans on social networks, which include the hashtag #FireJamesGunn. He took over the executive role at DC Studios, alongside producer Peter Safran, last October.
Gunn stated that they are aware that they are not going to “make all people happy”. However, he promised that any decision made will be made “in service of DC’s story and characters.”

Here’s James Gunn’s full statement on reports of a potential DCEU reboot:
“So, as for yesterday’s story on The Hollywood Reporterpart of it is true, part of it is half true, part of it is not true, and part of it we have not yet decided whether it is true or not.
Although this first month in DC has been fruitful, building the next ten years of history [de DC] It takes time and we are just getting started.
Peter [Safran] and I chose to run DC Studios knowing that we were approaching a troubled environment, both for the stories being told and for the audience itself, and there would be an inevitable transition period as we moved to tell a cohesive narrative through film, film, and television. television, animation and video games.
But in the end, the inconvenience of that transition period was dwarfed by the creative possibilities and the opportunity to build on what has worked at DC thus far and help rectify what hasn’t.
We know we’re not going to make everyone happy every step of the way, but we can promise that everything we do is done in service of the STORY and in service of the CHARACTERS OF DC, who we know cherish and have cherished for our lives. whole.
As for more answers on the future of the DCU, I’ll unfortunately have to ask them to wait. We are giving these characters and stories the time and attention they deserve and we ourselves still have many more questions to ask and answer.”.
It will be next week when James Gunn and Peter Safran lay out their 10-year plan to rectify the DCEU to David Zaslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery. However, it seems that fans will have to wait a little longer to see the future of the brand.
