DC Studios Bosses May Have Ruffled Some Feathers With Warner Bros. Execs Following DCU Slate Reveal

Comic book fans have had plenty to say about this week's DCU slate reveal from DC Studios, but comments from James Gunn and Peter Safran reportedly caused some problems behind the scenes at Warner Bros.

Neither James Gunn nor Peter Safran are studio executives, and that was evident from their DCU presentation to journalists earlier this week. Surprisingly candid about some topics (Henry Cavill being ousted as Superman) and toeing the company line on others (Ezra Miller's future as The Flash), it's clear DC Studios will be very different from Marvel Studios. 

Fans have had plenty to say about the "Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters" slate reveal, though everyone seems to agree that there was a noticeable lack of fanfare surrounding the slate reveal. 

Still, comments from Gunn have made it clear he's very confident in his abilities to lead the DCU into a brighter future. Some of his remarks, however, have ruffled the feathers of MCU fans given his apparent insinuations that he won't be doing things the Marvel Studios way and may actually have a better approach to shared world storytelling.

They're not the only ones with their noses out of joints, though, as The Hollywood Reporter has revealed, "Some of [Gunn and Safran's] comments were not exactly tactful (the 'previous regime' is actually some of the same people who are currently in charge of Warner Bros.!) and there’s been quite a few ruffled feathers, from what we’ve been told."

Oh, dear. 

Gunn and Safran certainly don't appear worried about upsetting people, something that's evident from the way A-Lister Dwayne Johnson was dismissed from his role as Black Adam. The actor held a lot of sway at Warner Bros., though it was during this same presentation that Gunn made it clear DC Studios wouldn't accept people going over the heads of others to further their agendas.

Was that a shot at The Rock? We don't know, but the actor made no secret of the fact he went around former DC Films boss Walter Hamada to facilitate Henry Cavill's short-lived Superman return. 

As for who else has ruffled feathers at Warner Bros. right now, we don't know. What we can say is that it's definitely going to be interesting to see where Gunn and Safran's unique DC Studios leadership leads...
