James Gunn Can’t Tease His Favorite Upcoming DC Universe Project
At a DC Universe (DCU) press event, James Gunn, co-chair and co-CEO of DC Studios alongside Peter Safran, revealed that his favorite project from the new slate of DCU movies is one that he refuses to talk about. “It’s just so totally unique that the idea itself is giving away too much when it may not come out for two or three years,” Gunn said.
In December 2022, Gunn talked about the decisions he and Safran were making behind the scenes. “Our choices for the DCU are based upon what we believe is best for the story [and] best for the DC characters who have been around for nearly 85 years,” Gunn tweeted. “Perhaps these choices are great, perhaps not, but they are made with sincere hearts [and] integrity [and] always with the story in mind.”
It’s clear Gunn and Safran are well aware of the work ahead of them, as evidenced by Gunn’s insightful tweets and the subsequent follow-through with the announced slate. The projects Gunn was willing to talk about — including a movie featuring Superman as a young reporter — feel like projects born from the mind of a creative who has truly immersed themselves in comics.
