“It has nothing to do with you”: James Gunn Defends Himself From Ray Fisher for Supporting Joss Whedon as DCU Head Erases Snyderverse for Good

James Gunn Defends Himself From Ray Fisher for Supporting Joss Whedon

James Gunn’s habit of replying to people on Twitter seems to be taking a heavy toll on the director. Ray Fisher had already found himself in controversies when Joss Whedon was directing Justice League called out the new co-head of DC.

While seeming to support Joss Whedon during Justice League in 2017, the Peacemaker director replied to the actor that it had nothing to do with him and it was Twitter’s feature that automatically deleted his (James Gunn’s) tweets.

James Gunn congratulated and cheered up his Marvel partner during the 2017 times and tweeted in support of Joss Whedon. Ray Fisher tweeted screenshots of Gunn’s deleted tweets that seemingly praised Joss Whedon and alleged that he later deleted the said tweets after joining DC. With statements like “Refusing to apologize for toxic behavior seems to be a job requirement for WB/DC” the Cyborg actor threw accusations and hate towards the Guardians of the Galaxy director.

James Gunn in kind replied that it is a Twitter feature that automatically deletes his tweets and further stated that it had nothing to do with Ray Fisher.

Ray Fisher has not tweeted any further tweets as some of the fans rallied against the actor for digging up the buried past.  With blames for wanting attention and defamation of the DCU, several of the people also backed out of the support that they had for Ray Fisher earlier.

The newly appointed co-head of DC Studios seems to have hatred for director Zack Snyder’s Snyderverse in the DCU. The removal of Henry Cavill and focus on a more younger Superman was a clear indication of rebooting a franchise from the ground up.

While alleged reports of Gal Gadot quitting the DCU and stepping down from her role as Wonder Woman in the DCU is also a statement that the American filmmaker would have his way for this new era of DC. With the focus entirely devoted to the young Superman film, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom along with The Flash seem to be the last remnants of the DC before James Gunn.

The Flash starring Ezra Miller is slated for a release date of 16th June 2023.
