Good to see what Gunn is picking up with next.James Gunn Will Reportedly Help DC Rebuild Their Cinematic Universe
Last week, We Got This Covered reported that we’d heard Warner Bros. was planning to effectively rebootthe DC Extended Universe. The original continuity will stand in the likes of the Wonder Woman and Aquaman franchises, but new projects – like The Batman and Supergirl – will take place in a fresh timeline that won’t connect with the old movies at all.
At the time, we believed this meant WB was attempting to sweep the past of the DCEU under the rug. However, our source now tells us that the studio is turning to a certain filmmaker who also works with Marvel to rebuild their fractured franchise.
WGTC has heard that James Gunn has been appointed to get the DCEU back in shape. From what we understand, the diector is set to be involved in several upcoming projects as a producer, with his role as overseer of the cinematic universe also meaning he’ll be involved in some capacity in almost all films moving forward, even if he’s not explicitly credited.
To clarify, the plans to continue with two separate DC universes is still a go, so Matt Reeves’ The Batman remains set to reboot the Dark Knight mythoson the big screen. Our source tells us that there’s the idea to potentially merge the two timelines together eventually, but there are no immediate plans for that
Hopefully he'll do a better job than his predecessors.
@ playing around with merging the two "timelines". Does that include the Joker movie? Or is that still way unconnected?
Gunn was done when they hired him back.Watch Marvel dump his behind.
Can't serve 2 masters. And is insider trading a concern? Lol
Before the controversy he was talking about doing more space **** and possibly Thunderbolts. After getting his job back he's finishing his GotG trilogy and thats it.
He already doing Suicide Squad thats scratching that Thunderbolts itch.
