James Gunn and Peter Safran putting an end to the DC Universe we once knew is easily one of the biggest newsmakers this year. But even before the DC Studios duo could begin laying out their plans for their interconnected franchise, a lot of fans have been raising their eyebrows over their most recent creative decisions, most notably Henry Cavill's Superman exit.
As it stands, Gunn is currently writing the script for the Man of Steel reboot that would see a younger Clark Kent who is just starting out as a reporter at the Daily Planet. Key details about the project have yet to be disclosed but a lot of people are already doubting the Peacemaker director's vision for DC's flagship superhero.
On Twitter, one fan even claimed that Gunn will "f-ck up" Superman but instead of hitting back, the Marvel director decided to offer a quirky response. Check out the exchange here:
To be fair, Gunn has a rich knowledge when it comes to comics and he's also proven on more than one occasion that he can do a well-crafted superhero project. I honestly don't know where all the hate is coming from but I certainly hope Gunn makes good on his promise to put the fans first before anything else.
Meanwhile, in other DCU news, the franchise's next film Shazam! Fury of the Gods is scheduled for release on March 17, 2023.
