James Gunn Prepares Fans For Major DCU Changes: “We Are Not Going To Make Every Single Person Happy”

It was only a couple of hours ago on here that I wrote that if anything good was going to come out of these shake-ups at DC Studios, it was that James Gunn would keep fans in the loop. And so that’s exactly what he’s done, although the update could leave some of those same fans a little upset.

Over the last 24 hours, we’ve seen some shocking news about the future of the DCU. Wonder Woman 3 is no longer happening, Jason Momoa could be recast as Lobo, Man of Steel 2 could get the axe, and that’s just the start of what is starting to look like a total reset. Well, Gunn didn’t dispute that at all.

In a series of tweets, Gunn acknowledged that some of THR’s reporting is true, while others are less so. He says they are going through an “unavoidable transitional period”, but the good news is that it allows them to tighten things up creatively across film, TV, animation, and even video games.

Here’s the key bit, where he starts to prepare fans for what will be some major changes that not everyone is going to be too keen on…

He closed with a Kingdom Come image of the Justice League, and a promise that there will be more answers to come. We’re just going to have to wait a bit longer for those.
