DC Offered James Gunn a Superman Movie Before Settling on The Suicide Squad
Warner Bros. offered a Superman movie to James Gunn. The studio was reportedly bringing out the big guns when courting the director after Disney fired him from Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Gunn was let go over the summer after some tweets containing tasteless jokes about pedophilia, rape, and racism were unearthed. Disney made the swift decision to cut Gunn loose and after waiting a bit, Warner Bros. went in and swooped him up, bringing him over to the DC side of things.
Before taking on Suicide Squad 2, Warner Bros. offered James Gunn a shot at taking on a Superman movie. It isn’t clear if this would have been the long-talked about Man of Steel 2 with Henry Cavill or another project. However, there were a lot of whispers about a Man of Steel sequel popping up frequently towards the end of last year. But, it looks like Cavill, like Ben Affleck, may be finished with the role, leading one to believe that Gunn would’ve been starting from scratch. – Source
