James Gunn Promises the “Biggest Story Ever Told” As DC Studios Co-Chairman

James Gunn is passionate about superheroes. One only needs to watch him here in conversation with our own Joey Magidson to see that. Between The Suicide Squad (raved about by Joey here) in theaters and Peacemaker on HBO Max, Gunn has been among the most successful at tackling DC projects. Having recently been named the co-chairman of DC Studios, alongside Peter Safran, Warner Bros. seems very confident in his abilities. Recently, he took to Social Media to talk about what he plans to do.

In a series of tweets, Gunn is promising to tell the “biggest story ever told” across film and television, which should excite fans. After years of DC and WB seemingly having no direction, Gunn and Safran should be able to right the ship and all these comic book properties to truly spread their wings.

Here are the tweets from James Gunn:

Gunn’s statement is very carefully (and rightfully) worded to reassure everyone that he’ll listen to fan feedback but not commit to actually acting on or taking any direction from the fans.

Which is the correct way to go about it. Sometimes fans are good at signaling when a story is going in a broadly wrong direction but they are pretty consistently terrible at coming up with dramatically compelling (or even functional) stories that general audiences actually want to see.
