Last week, the news broke that The Suicide Squad director James Gunn and long-time DCEU DCU producer Peter Safran have been assigned to the new roles of Co-Chairmen and Chief Executive Officers of DC Studios, overseeing the overall creative direction of the DC Universe across film, TV, and animation under a single banner.

Today, the pair officially begin working at Warner Bros. Discovery in their new positions, and Gunn has just sent out the following Tweet.

The comic book panel features Clark Kent/Superman typing up a report at the Daily Planet, and as you might expect, this choice of image has already led to speculation that the filmmaker could be hinting at something here.

Gunn is a current fan-favorite pick to helm the next solo Superman movie. The project is in the very early stages of development, and WBD is said to be only now accepting pitches from writers. This isn't to say he couldn't end up behind the camera, of course, but we'd say people are reading a bit too much into this Tweet.

Henry Cavill recently returned as the Man of Steel for Black Adam's post-credits scene, and was asked about Gunn taking over as co-DC Studios boss during an interview with IGN.

"I have not met James yet," the actor admitted. "I'm looking very forward to meeting him. He's clearly a very, very talented man, and I cannot wait to sit down and have long, long conversations with him. I'm very excited about him being there and very excited about any future opportunities we can work together."

Gunn does tend to keep his followers updated on his current projects, so hopefully he'll continue to do so with the added pressure of his new role.

@Colton - They've already got cringe-worthy jokes.

The amount of quipping may increase, as will the amount of heart reflected and care taken in the properties.

@Colton - eh idk about that. Gunn may be a comedy writer, but he understands the characters and knows when the story needs to be serious. As long as he's just a producer like feige I don't think it'll be too much in terms of comedy.
