James Gunn Says DC Is Focused on the ‘New DCU’ and Telling the ‘Biggest Story Ever Told’ Across Multiple Projects

0


DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn has taken to Twitter after seeing many tweets wishing for “#SaveLegendsofTomorrow” and “#ReleaseTheAyerCut,” and wanted to share that, while the team is open to “everything as we embark on this journey,” the initial focus of the studio is on “the story going forward, hammering out the new DCU, & telling the Biggest Story Ever Told across multiple films, television shows, & animated projects.”

Gunn, who is sharing the CEO duties of DC Studios with producer Peter Safran, wanted to be open about the future of DC and the varying desires of so many fans around the world, including those who wish for the canceled Legends of Tomorrow to return or for DC to release The Ayer Cut of the original Suicide Squad, much like it did for The Snyder Cut of The Justice League.

“Opened up Twitter at the end of a long, creative weekend to see the many tweets to #SaveLegendsofTomorrow & #ReleaseTheAyerCut & fan support for other DC projects over the years. The majority of these requests were enthusiastic & respectful,” Gunn said. “As the new (& first ever) CEOs of DC Studios, Peter & I think it’s important we acknowledge you, the fans, & let you know we hear your different desires for the pathways forward for DC.”

Gunn has been pretty active and vocal on social media over the years, but this new position is obviously keeping him much busier than usual. Despite that, he wanted to give these fans an idea of where the studio’s head is at and what its current mission is.

“Although our ability to interact on Twitter has been lessened due to the workload of our new positions, we are listening & open to everything as we embark on this journey, & will continue to do so for the next few years,” Gunn said. “But all our initial focus is on the story going forward, hammering out the new DCU, & telling the Biggest Story Ever Told across multiple films, television shows, & animated projects. We invite all of the DC fandoms from across the multiverse — and everyone else as well — into this new universe. We can’t wait to reveal more.”

Gunn is in charge of the creative side of DC Studios and Safran will handle the business side of the company. Gunn will still direct films as co-CEO, and the initial deal is expected to last at least four years.
