In a number of posts and replies across Twitter and Mastodon, DC Studios Co-CEO James Gunn revealed a bevy of details about Marvel, DC, and the comics he’s been reading.
When asked about if he has seen and liked HBO Max’s Doom Patrol series, Gunn replied with a quick “Yes.” Similarly, Gunn confirmed that he has read Frank Miller’s seminal Batman story The Dark Knight Returns.
The DC Studios Co-CEO then gave praise to acclaimed comic writer Tom King. When a fan asked if he enjoyed King’s Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, he stated he enjoyed it “So, so, so much,” and that he feels Tom King “is just the greatest.”
Just before the New Year, fans started to speculate about whether the books on the table in the tweet below were hints about the future of the DC Universe, as they’re omnibuses of Grant Morrison’s Batman run. Gunn set the record straight, confirming that their placement wasn’t any kind of hint, though he admitted that “Grant’s Batman & Robin (& their Superman) are some of my favorites.”
