Marvel vs DC: James Gunn Responds to Critics About Casting MCU Actors in DC Films


James Gunn and Peter Safran are leading the new era of the DC Universe that has already created a lot of noise. The Guardians of the Galaxy director has been known to have a close-knit relationship with the actors he works with and some fans are hoping he doesn’t bring Marvel actors into the new DC films.


A fan on Twitter mentioned Gunn in a tweet asking him not to “encourage” his Guardians cast to “follow” him to DCU suggesting to “find fresh actors that can craft brilliant characters and forge new memories for audiences.”


Gunn replied to that tweet to clarify and give insight into the casting process of the films he’s working on.


“We have hundreds of roles to cast. As I’ve always done, some will be brand new faces, some will be actors I’ve worked with before, & some will be actors you know who I’ve never worked with,” Gunn tweeted. “What matters most is the actor fits the role & they’re easy to work with.”



Gunn teased that by the end of the month, he would announce some of the slate for DC that is coming. What do you think of Gunn’s changes?


Some fans have not been impressed.
