But soon enough, the director was able to somewhat tackle the situation in time by announcing his vision of a much younger Superman in the works that he would personally look over. While a lot of fans still have their doubts, some believe that Gunn can pull it off easily.

With the weight of an entire multi-billion dollar franchise riding on his back, James Gunn, along with Peter Safran, have made it their goal to make it one heck of a cinematic universe, which has led to them uprooting any discrepancies that might harm them in the future. The biggest decision that The Suicide Squad director took was relieving Henry Cavill of his duties as the face of Superman in DC Films. With this decision, came hate and backlash, something that was alleviated by Gunn’s announcement of the future of the DCU.

Many of the fans of DC Comics argue the fact that Gunn might not have made the right choice after letting Cavill leave DC Films’ midst, as he was widely considered one of the greatest Superman that cinema had seen. This, in turn, raised serious doubts when the director revealed to reboot of  Superman in the form of Superman: Legacy. But fans have decided to remind everyone that he is one of the top directors in the world for a reason.

Now, fans have decided to voice their support for the Brightburn director by taking to Twitter and letting everyone know that Gunn has the resume to make something epic.

With many more from the audience taking Gunn’s side, it’ll be interesting to see what the director has in store for the fans of Superman and DC Comics.
