There's no denying that James Gunn has made a lot of enemies after officially confirming that Henry Cavill won't be playing Superman in the "new" DC Universe. This is despite the fact that the 39-year-old British actor announced last October that he's returning full-time as the Man of Steel and will be featured in future projects.

Shortly after the shocking news, the DC Studios co-CEO revealed that he's in charge of writing the script for Superman's next outing on the big screen. Now, Mission Impossible director Christopher McQuarrie weighs in on the possibility of helming the project and it turns out that he's down but under one condition.

Responding to a fan who proposed he direct the DCU's next Superman film or anything DCU-related, McQuarrie said that he'll do it as long as Pom Klementieff is part of his cast. Interestingly, Gunn previously said that the Guardians of the Galaxy actress is part of his DCU plans.

As it stands, key details about the Superman screenplay Gunn is working on remain under wraps. All we know so far is that the project won't be an origin story and will explore Clark Kent's early days as a reporter on the Daily Planet.

In other DCU news, the franchise's next flick, Shazam! Fury of the Gods is slated for theatrical release on March 17, 2023.
