James Gunn Hopes to Connect DCU Across Film, TV, and Video Games

James Gunn Hopes to Connect DCU Across Film, TV, and Video Games

It was only last month that Warner Bros. Discovery announced their move to try and bring the DCU from the hell of inconsistency it has fallen into. The plan included hiring James Gunn and Peter Safran as co-CEOs of DC Studios with the pair working as a two-headed beast to oversee the creative and business fronts.

Gunn is no stranger to superheroes as he launched the very successful MCU ragtag team of Guardians of the Galaxy which still sits atop as one of the most promising films in the MCU thus far. He also brought DC a soft reboot of Suicide Squad with his film The Suicide Squad which fans praised and led to the spinoff series led by John Cena in which he reprised his role as Peacemaker.

With the DCU future in their hands, Gunn has been on the receiving end of many questions from the press and fans. One of the questions he fielded yesterday included whether he and Safran had any plans “to give more DC characters TV shows that’ll add to the story for the DCEU.” Gunn happily answered the question in which he confirmed the connected universe, saying:

“Yes, most definitely, the DCU will be connected across film and TV (and animation).”

Another question further confirmed that the connected universe would also include the video game releases as DCU canon as well. With DC looking to create a universe as vast as the MCU has become and looking to bring that cohesive universe, it’s refreshing to see them step outside of what the MCU is doing and chooses not to do and create a unique universe that will leave its own mark within the fandom.

Although some might see it as an overcomplication or limitation on developers and studios to create a video game with a narrative having to fit within the constraints of the film/TV universe, it could also give fans another side of the coin that will allow us to implement ourselves into one shared universe that we will know and understand fully and could be a chance to see voices lent to these characters in games which we might not have seen otherwise. It will not be without its challenges but there is definitely potential and an opportunity here that warrants exploration and could set the DCEU apart from the MCU as it looks to make up for previous shortcomings.
