In October 2022, Gunn and Safran were announced as the new creative leads for the whole of the DC universe. This includes all future live-action movies, TV shows, and animated content. However, the DCEU revamp isn’t going as smoothly as Gunn and Safran may have initially hoped for.
There was major backlash to the news that Henry Cavill would no longer be coming back to the role of Superman despite his return in the recent Black Adam post-credits scene being extremely well received. As well as this, the potential recasting of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman has DC fans worried about the future of the character as well as the idea of each major hero being recast once again.
