The fans are angry!
Following James Gunn’s announcement of the upcoming slate of projects for the new DC Universe, some fans of Zack Snyder’s take on the DC Universe have expressed their disappointment with Gunn’s choice of projects. This has led to the hashtag “#FireJamesGunn” trending via Twitter, with fans expressing their frustration and disappointment with the new direction the franchise is taking. Many fans believe that the new slate is a significant step down from what they had hoped for and that it fails to live up to the expectations set by Snyder’s vision.
Twitter users have been particularly vocal in their disappointment with the new projects, with many comparing the upcoming films to Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which they see as a significant departure from the darker, grittier style of Snyder’s DC Universe. One Twitter user compared Man of Steel to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, claiming that the former is a “masterpiece,” and the latter is “trash.” This sentiment was echoed by many other fans who felt that Gunn’s projects were a far cry from the quality of Snyder’s work.
Many fans were also upset with Gunn’s recent comments regarding former Superman actor Henry Cavill. Gunn’s comment that “Henry was never cast” as Superman in the new DCU has upset fans who had hoped to see Cavill return as the iconic superhero. Some fans have accused Gunn of being misleading or even lying about Cavill’s involvement in the new DCU, leading to the hashtag “#FireJamesGunn” trending on Twitter.
