“He is lying”: DCU Fans Don’t Believe James Gunn’s Story as He Tries to Survive the Backlash From Christopher Nolan’s Batman Comments on Facebook

"He is lying": DCU Fans Don't Believe James Gunn's Story as He Tries to Survive the Backlash From Christopher Nolan's Batman Comments on Facebook

James Gunn found himself in a bit of a pickle due to his controversial tweets once again as his Facebook account got deactivated. From allegations of hacking to some controversial remarks against every Batman ever made, Gunn finds himself in another pit of misunderstandings and drama from his past.

Back in 2012, the director commented on his Facebook profile, his thoughts about every actor that had portrayed the character of Bruce Wayne. Finding faults in every actor, James Gunn even targeted Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy and fans think this resulted in his supposed Facebook deactivation!

James Gunn’s Past Is Back Once Again To Haunt Him

This isn’t the first time that the Peacemaker director has found himself in controversy due to his tweets. The director was also fired from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, keeping him from directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 due to his tweets that he had written several years back.

James Gunn is certainly not the man he was all those years ago. Having a different mindset and a more professional outlook, Gunn essentially realized that people do not need to know every thought that he has in his mind. In 2012, the director commented about all the actors who had portrayed the role of Batman. Stating that there was always something wrong with the actor, Gunn had some pretty harsh words for the movies.

Digging around in Gunn’s backyard, the comments were uncovered and spread on the internet as Gunn went on to humiliate Michael Keaton, Christopher Nolan, Jack Nicholson, and Tim Burton.

“I have problems with both of Nolan’s films – I don’t think either one is classic, and I don’t even really think Batman Begins is good.”

The comments were recovered recently and soon after this, James Gunn’s Facebook account was supposedly deactivated. Fans speculated that the reason for the deactivation would be these controversial comments but James Gunn says otherwise.

For the speculations, The Suicide Squad director quickly took to his Instagram and stated that his account had been hacked. Gunn revealed that to secure his account, it had been temporarily disabled and also called out the websites that alleged that the account got deactivated due to the 2012 comments.

“What happens… and then the broad assumptions made by certain sites. I haven’t been on FB in so long I don’t even know how to answer the questions to get back on.”

Although Gunn might be telling the truth, some people are still unconvinced. Taking to Twitter, people started tweeting against the co-head of the DC Studios.

Well, James Gunn’s defense hasn’t been confirmed but the director has not denied that he made these comments all those years ago. If this were to somehow gain more traction, Gunn could potentially lose his job as the co-head of the DC Studios!
