DC Studios’ James Gunn Sticks By His Guns In Fierce Response To Backlash

On his personal Twitter account today, James Gunn defended recent decisions made alongside co-head of DC Studios Peter Safran in a series of tweets, saying the pair knew in advance how controversial their hard reset of the franchise might be and blaming the bulk of the outrage levied at them on Internet trolls. “One of the things Peter & I were aware of when we took the job as heads of DC Studios was a certain minority of people online that could be, well, uproarious & unkind, to say the least,” Gunn began.

While acknowledging the uncertainty of the future, Gunn proclaimed that he and Safran have the best interests of the franchise at heart, noting, “Our choices for the DCU are based upon what we believe is best for the story & best for the DC characters who have been around for nearly 85 years. Perhaps these choices are great, perhaps not, but they are made with sincere hearts & integrity & always with the story in mind.” Gunn added that he and Safran knew what they were walking into and that they’d anticipated some initial turbulence when making difficult decisions about the DCU franchise.

It is possible that fan anger will mellow as Gunn and Safran lay out future plans for DC Studios in the coming days and months. A new lineup of projects for fans to look forward to would prove, at the least, that there are strong hands at the helm.
