After the exit of Henry Cavill from the DCU, James Gunn finally addressed the controversial decision. While taking on the role of co-head of DC Studios, Gunn said he knew that there would a minority of people that would be displeased by his decisions.

“A certain minority of people online that could be, well, uproarious & unkind, to say the least. We were aware there would be a period of turbulence when we took this gig, & we knew we would sometimes have to make difficult & not-so-obvious choices, especially in the wake of the fractious nature of what came before us,”

Albeit a controversial one, James Gunn has also found supporters for his decision to uproot the entirety of the DCU and replant it once again. The idea of a younger version of Clark Kent is enticing for several people to watch how Gunn and Safran’s DCU will be received by the people.
