Even James Gunn Fans Admit He Shouldn’t Come Near A ‘Superman’ Movie

July 5, 2022

When James Gunn was first fired from the helm of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3the director’s chair had barely grown cold before he presented offers from Warner Bros. and DC Films, which basically gave him the choice of any property he wanted, including Superman.

As we all know, Gunn opted to stay in the wheelhouse of overpowered misfits, which turned out to be the right choice, at least from a qualitative standpoint. The Suicide Squad may have exploded dramatically at the box office, but it ranks among the DCEU’s highest-rated entries, while Peacemaker became a phenomenon when it premiered on HBO Max earlier this year.
