James Gunn Says Former DC Leadership Was F**ked Up

Safran and Gunn have recently proposed a blueprint for a unified DC Universe that will use established heroes to promote lesser-known characters.

During the presentation, Gunn was extremely critical of Warner Bros. for its handling of DC in the past:

“As everyone here probably knows, the history of DC is pretty messed up, Says Gunn. It was f*cked up. The history has been sh*t. It's been a real f*cked up journey for DC. No one was minding the mint."

"They were giving away IP like they were party favors at any creator who smiled at whoever was in charge. There was never any real power given to the people in charge, and so somebody could always go over their head and do whatever they wanted."

"We had the DCEU, which then became the Joss Whedon Justice League but it also became the Snyderverse, which became this. And then we have Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 2, which doesn't even match what happened in Wonder Woman 1 and then we have the Arrowverse and even us coming in with The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker and y'know what is it exactly?"

"And all of a sudden Bat-Mite's a real guy. So how can we take these things together and make them make sense and have them unified and have them be one real universe - one real world.”
