DC Studios co-head James Gunn found himself in the spotlight not for his cinematic work but due to the sudden disappearance of his personal Facebook account. Users attempting to access Gunn’s profile were met with a jarring “content deleted” notice, causing a flurry of online speculation.
Amidst the confusion, some individuals linked the account’s deactivation to previously surfaced comments made by James Gunn concerning various Batman movies. Diving back to 2012, Gunn had expressed certain critiques about the Batman films directed by both Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan. While he didn’t seem particularly fond of Burton’s take on the hero, Gunn also voiced reservations about Nolan’s interpretation, suggesting neither was exemplary in his eyes.
James Gunn explains why his Facebook account was deactivated
Taking to Instagram, James Gunn shed light on the real reason behind his Facebook account’s sudden deactivation. Gunn revealed that an unauthorized attempt was made to access his Facebook account, so Meta temporarily restricted access to his page.
As the dust settles on the recent controversy, James Gunn is channeling his focus toward his upcoming DC Studios project Superman: Legacy. Slated for a 2025 release, Gunn is both writing and directing the Superman reboot. Beyond this project, Gunn is also deeply involved in shaping the future trajectory of the DC universe alongside his DC Studios partner Peter Safran.
Superman: Legacy is a much-anticipated project, given that Clark Kent has been an integral part of the DC Universe for over 80 years, with various iterations and adaptations across different media. The movie promises to explore the character’s origins and his struggles to balance his dual identities as Clark Kent and Superman while fighting off villains and saving the world.
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
