James Gunn’s online activity offers the best and worst for DCU Batman
While it hasn’t even been officially confirmed that he’s joining co-star Henry Cavill to head out, everyone has resigned himself to the fact that it’s Ben Affleck Batman will be the next high-profile victim of James Gunn’s DCU.
It remains a great shame that the two-time Academy Award winner never got the chance to direct his own solo film, but if 39-year-old Cavill was deemed too old to be involved in the franchise’s plans, then 50-year-old is Old Affleck’s goose is inevitably cooked.
On the bright side, fans will be able to see him The Lightning when it finally releases this summer, though question marks have surrounded its last-minute addition Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. We have no idea what else Gunn and Peter Safran have in store for the Dark Knight – other than letting Matt Reeves’ universe continue to function independently – but this Guardians of the Galaxy The director’s recent social media activities have covered both sides of the spectrum.
Gunn liked the tweet below, which in theory would be music to the ears of comic book lovers everywhere who would love nothing more than to see one of the most iconic Batman arcs of all time in live action.
On the other side of the coin, Gunn also agreed to a suggestion that he take inspiration from Adam West’s iteration of the Caped Crusader, which would make his critics’ blood boil furiously.
As previously mentioned, we’re completely in the dark as to what’s next for Batman under the new regime, but let’s hope Affleck gets a proper send-off to reflect his underrated role as Bruce Wayne.
