So James Gunn is going to be co-head of DC Studios apparently?

My hope is the approach will be a little like his The Suicide Squad; an implied pre-built world instead of having to make a big deal out of establishing that big things are coming. Be different from Marvel by being expressly more standalone yet with crossover in the way it and Birds of Prey did. I don't necessarily need more R-rated DC but those feel closer to the model I personally would want.I think Gunn is a good choice to head this up, but yeah, his success is really dependent on the head honchos at WB picking a path and sticking with it. Previous heads barely got time to try to clean up the mess from the previous direction and change course before being removed and the studio having to find a new direction again.
Spread the good word, brother-man!Now that the first season is out of the paywall I started listening and, yes, this is the good stuff
I think the movies they've released have all been good. I even like WW84. But the movies in development hell have belayed a very different picture of the studio's internal workings.Honestly, I think DC has been doing a pretty great job the last 5 years, pretty much since Justice League. Nice variety of tones, from Shazam to The Suicide Squad to Aquaman, nice variety of sub-genres.
I think it's pretty interesting as well. My big complaint is not enough Kristen WiigI am higher on that movie than most, but at the very least it is an ambitious, interesting mess. It tries to resolve its central villain conflict without a physical fight, which is not something I can think of another superhero movie doing off the top of my head.
