DC Studios CEO James Gunn has recently responded to backlash from fans who don’t want to see “Guardians of the Galaxy” and Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) stars in the DC Universe.
In an interview with a popular entertainment website, Gunn stated that what matters most when casting actors for roles is that they fit the character and are easy to work with on set.
Gunn, who is known for directing the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films and working on the MCU, has recently been tapped to work on the upcoming DC film, “The Suicide Squad.” This news has sparked some controversy among fans, with some expressing concern that Gunn’s involvement in the DC universe will lead to the inclusion of MCU actors in the film.
However, Gunn has made it clear that he is not interested in casting actors based on their previous roles, and that the only thing that matters to him is finding the right person for the role. He stated, “I’m not interested in bringing in actors from the MCU just for the sake of it. What matters most is that the actor fits the role and they’re easy to work with.”
Gunn went on to say that he understands the concerns of some fans, but he believes that the best way to create a great film is to focus on the characters and the story, rather than worrying about which actors are involved. He said, “I understand that fans have their preferences, but at the end of the day, what matters most is creating a great film. And I believe that the best way to do that is to focus on the characters and the story, rather than worrying about which actors are involved.”
James Gunn has addressed the same in a recent tweet:
We have hundreds of roles to cast. As I’ve always done, some will be brand new faces, some will be actors I’ve worked with before, & some will be actors you know who I’ve never worked with. What matters most is the actor fits the role & they’re easy to work with. https://t.co/akXKoj70AS
