Zack Snyder reveals what he hopes to see from James Gunn’s DCU

Zack Snyder opened up about his excitement for James Gunn’s creation of the DC Universe. The DCEU movie timeline, which ran from 2013 to 2023, was Warner Bros.’ attempt to create a connected superhero universe based on DC Comics characters.

But after several creative changes behind the scenes and a poor box office performance, a new DC universe was born, co-led by Peter Safran and James Gunn.

During a recent interview with CBR, Snyder was asked about his desires for Gunn’s DC Universe, as the Rebel Moon director is a big fan of comic books. Given his ties to the DCEU, fans are interested in Snyder’s plans for the upcoming DC film series, even though he has left his work at DC behind after Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

When asked which character he wants to see succeed, Snyder replied, ā€œI mean, I’m kind of a public person. I’m okay with the characters being treated with respect and being accurate in terms of mythology. I’m on board. Look what happens. I’m very happy at the moment. We’ll see what happens when Superman arrives, as we’ll be catching him pretty quickly.ā€

Snyder and Gunn have a history together since the latter created the script for Snyder’s first feature film, Dawn of the Dead. Coincidentally, both would eventually become heavily involved in making films based on the stories and characters from DC Comics. Following the announcement that Gunn and Safran were acquiring DC Studios, Gunn revealed that Snyder had called him to wish him luck on the next project.
