Calling Netflix 'cowards' (a word you clearly don't understand) for taking a step to stop people stealing their content. 🤦

Gunn also confirmed that the Blue Beetle movie is isolated enough from the DCEU for it to be a part of the new DCU.
Given the people working on it, the Waller show is the most exciting thing out of the whole slate for me and all of this gives me real hope that Gunn and Safran can make this work even better than the MCU but I'm still a little worried if Zaslav and the other suits will interfere too much. Can't wait to watch a hopeful and optimistic Superman film.

DC should of embraced the Milestone and ran with it as a cinematic universe.

It was indeed Len Wein who said he got more for Lucius Fox than for Wolverine, and similarly Jim Starlin got more for KGBeast (who kinda appeared in BvS) than for Thanos.

What i like about Gunn's approach is it's pulling away slightly from DC's obsession with the core Batman/Superman films and going into the vault of stuff so out there almost nobody has heard of them, which also gives the film makers creative freedom to do something different and not just follow the comic's. It's the right call honestly!

“I’ll happily do that for $10,000 a week”
“That’s a $120,000 a year!”

That would be $520,000 a year, boys… 😁

Gotta say, most of the stuff in the new DC slate seems pretty niche and therefore risky. Doing 'Creature Commandos' and 'The Authority', but no Justice League, only seems to make sense as a reflection of Gunn's personal taste - might be cool, but will it pull in the non-nerd punters? Is WB going to try to minimize the risk of these weirder projects by making these movies on a shoestring budget? I remain sceptical, especially of Gunn as the writer/director for a Superman movie. Gunn's good at anti-heroes, loser-heroes, gross-outs and transgressive humour. Not convinced he can do justice to an earnest, clean-cut, competent superhero - and his involvement in 'Brightburn', by the way, only serves to show that he can do the opposite of that. Don't understand why you'd think that's in any way a good sign.
