“You just got kicked out of your mom’s basement”: James Gunn Loses Cool in Twitter Altercation, Accidentally Spills Henry Cavill Returning For Man of Steel 2

But currently, the cinematic universe is having quite a time on the Internet. A series of reports and rumors about various details surrounding the future projects has raised a lot of buzz.

Recently, some reports stated how several anticipated projects by DC such as Wonder Woman 3 and Man of Steel 2 are put on hold by the company. This followed an intense backlash from the fans who thought that Henry Cavill’s future might be in jeopardy now. But looks like James Gunn has already started dropping hints about the next Superman movie.

Did James Gunn hint at Man of Steel 2?

It can’t be denied that Man of Steel 2 has gained the most media attention among all the reports. The doubtfulness among the fans followed by the return of the Henry Cavill character finally after so many years in The Rock movie Black Adam raising an uproar among the audience only to be moved back in the same condition again.

Now although the Guardians of the Galaxy fame had to face a lot of hate and backlash from the fans, several reports state that Gunn is most likely heading for a reboot and not a recast. It means that most actors like Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot are unlikely to be replaced by someone else. And looks like the 56-year-old has also proven this. Even though, he didn’t directly confess about the Enola Holmes actor’s return but made it very clear that he has no problems with the British star.

This came soon after a popular YouTuber whose channel is titled The Den of Nerds openly stated on Twitter that James Gunn hates Cavill and should most probably confess that. The Suicide Squad director took no time to respond to the tweet with his unique own savagery. Take a look at the thread:

The whole Internet clapped as the Peacemaker director singlehandedly baffled the YouTuber. Interestingly, the YouTuber has continued to raise his opinions about how Gunn really dislikes Cavill and is lying that he doesn’t. On the other hand, Gunn’s strong affirmation to the point that he has nothing against The Witcher fame has set the fire of hope lit among the fans that no matter what the announcements are, Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel sequel is still possible.

Soon after the reports of the rejection of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 script came out, there were also talks that a potential Henry Cavill cameo from 2023’s The Flash is also been cut from the final cut. On the other hand, Jason Momoa is also reported to end his Aquaman era and take over the role of Lobo. While all these reports are waiting for official announcements, it directly hints at James Gunn possibly erasing the SnyderVerse from reality and rebooting the franchise.

Lastly, James Gunn has also clarified that besides many genuine reports, there are also a few of them that are completely baseless and it is only he and Safran who know about the official details of the studio’s plans. Now it will be exciting to look at the official updates which are slated to be announced in January 2023.
