DC Studios Boss James Gunn Has Blunt Response For Fan Angry About Henry Cavill Being Ousted As Superman

While we wait with bated breath for DC Studios to announce its first wave of DCU projects, co-CEO James Gunn appears to have had enough of dealing with trolls unhappy to see the DCEU's time near its end...

The launch of DC Studios and a new DCU was cause for celebration...until it wasn't. When it became clear that James Gunn and Peter Safran plan to (mostly, if not entirely) reboot the DCEU, many fans turned on the idea, upset that the franchise as they know it is nearing its end. 

Dwayne Johnson has bid farewell to Black Adam - for now, at least - while it's been confirmed Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman. Instead, Gunn is penning a reboot focusing on a younger Clark Kent when he first arrives in Metropolis. 

That news came right after it looked like we would finally get to see Cavill return as the Man of Steel, with the backlash to his ousting proving predictably vocal. Now, as rumours continue to swirl about what the new DCU will look like, Gunn continues to find himself coming under fire from many disgruntled "fans" on social media.

After recently sharing a photo of his cat (in an Instagram post completely unrelated to his DC Studios role), one user responded by commenting with, "F*** your cat dude. You pissed off an entire franchise worth of fans. Nobody gives a rats ass about your cat. #Cavilisclark."

Gunn chose to respond to that with a rather blunt, "It'd be great if at the very least you knew how to spell an actor's name if you were going to be so outraged."


Simply put, the DCEU has been in a state of disarray for years now, so Gunn and Safran's DCU plans have to be an improvement over what preceded the formation of DC Studios. With the former promising a partial slate announcement before January ends, we're hoping that clears up how much of a reboot we're getting and what the plan is for these characters. 

As always, stay tuned for updates...and take a closer look at Gunn's cute cat below.
