James Gunn Responds to “Liar” Accusations Regarding Superman

James Gunn

James Gunn, co-CEO of DC Studios and the writer of the script for the upcoming “Superman: Legacy” movie, has responded to accusations on Twitter that he’s a liar.

“For years it’s been my commitment to the fans that I will never lie to them… and I never have. I’d be very curious about what it is you think I’ve lied about.”

When a fan accused him of once saying he didn’t want to run DC and did not want to make a Superman movie, Gunn responded by setting the record straight. “Neither of those were lies.”

“I was offered Superman but did [Suicide] Squad instead. A few years later I saw how to tackle Superman & took it on.”

As for originally turning down the idea of being CEO of DC Studios, Gunn confirmed that was true.

“I didn’t want to be the sole CEO of DC, but when they came & offered it to me AND Peter I said yes because I could focus on the creative side.”

“Again, I’ve never once lied to the fans, and never will. That doesn’t mean I’m never going to change my mind about anything.”

Gunn is writing the script for “Superman: Legacy” which is scheduled to be released July 11, 2025.

I’m so glad that I’m not into social media.

How can anyone care this much about what someone else said in the past?
James Gunn should just ignore this instead of commenting.

So ridiculous.

the only statement that gives me pause here is “..a few years later I saw how to tackle Superman..” This sadly reminds me of Goyer when he said he “finally figured out how to do Superman” Superman really shouldn’t need “figuring out” You either get it or you don’t imo. He’s not some mystical puzzle. Does not give me hope, but time will tell.
