James Gunn loves an obscure character, so DC fans are digging for the deepest cuts they want to see

filmmakers James Gunn has inspired DC fans to dust off their favorite obscure characters and place their bets on which ones will appear in the new DCU.

A well-known supporter of the Metal Men and Bat-Mite, his knowledge of old-school comic book canon personalities sparked a discussion about which vintage characters should appear on the r/DC_Cinematic subreddit.

Tintin006 opened the conversation by asking, “Who is your pick for the most obscure character to be announced as part of the new DCU?”

Once again the exceptional competence of the DCU fans was impressive. Many compelling superheroes from yesteryear popped up in the thread. The exchange was humorous, but also a wonderful sense of nostalgia.

Redditor Dry-Donut3811 mentioned a character whose name suggests he should have six legs, but he only has two, “Ambush Bug. I don’t really know how a film about him would work, but I’d be very interested to see Gunn try.”

Puzzleheaded_Walk_28 had other ideas and suggested a character from the past who was born in the future. Her choice was also well-received among Gunn’s followers: “If they actually make Booster Gold according to his poll, that would be at the top. When they get some legitimacy New gods Movie out, I’d say, would be packed with some pretty obscure characters.”

The next suggestion was a little tricky considering there are two versions of this former Justice League member in the DCU. Zombiebombie613 pointed out that Gunn checked her name in November 2022: “Didn’t he post Mister Terrific at some point? I would say that could be a character that we could see sooner rather than later.”

DeppStepp joked that a character created way back in 1939 holds great promise in the present: “There’s this one super obscure character… what was his name? Batman? I think he could get a good movie.”

It’s fascinating to imagine what throwback characters would look like on screen if given the same treatment as Batman. The creative team is so skillful that the character resonated with fans on a deep level. Part of the appeal of every DC hero is the endearing way they reshape weaknesses and turn them into superpowers. So it would certainly be interesting to see how this principle plays out with the deepest cuts.
