We’ve been waiting a while, but now the moment has come. As co-heads of the freshly renamed DC Studios, James Gunn and Peter Safran have begun their work, and a new era in the DC Universe has begun. As things stand, the franchise’s long-term intentions have not yet been disclosed, however it is likely that changes will begin to occur in 2023.
The fandom is, naturally, just as enthusiastic about the DC and Marvel filmmaker’s new executive position as he is. Many believe that Gunn is the finest person to help rebuild the DC Universe from the ground up, and Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav handing him the keys is a significant step toward making that happen.
David Zaslav, CEO of Discovery, is a crucial step in attaining it.
James posted a comic panel on Twitter honoring the Man of Steel, who recently made his stunning live-action homecoming to the big screen, to mark his first day as one of DC Studios’ CEOs.
Gunn wrote “First day, new job” as the tweet’s caption. Look at it here:
Now, does this imply that Gunn will direct Man of Steel 2? Not altogether, but it’s not completely impossible. Gunn’s tweet is, if anything, a blatant hint that Superman will appear more frequently in the “new” DC Universe, which is a significant victory for fans who have long been denied a true Man of Steel.
DC’s Black Adam is still being shown in theaters all across the world in the interim.
