James Gunn Shoots Down DC FanDome Rumors; Sort Of


Leave it up to James Gunn to spoil the party, as the director of The Suicide Squad shoots down some super cool rumors associated with the upcoming DC FanDome virtual convention.

“Sorry to hamper anyone’s excitement, but this isn’t real,” tweeted Gunn on Sunday.

Gunn responded to screenshots from Reddit offering “leaked” plans for DC FanDome that takes place next month and is confirmed to have the Snyder Cut, Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide Squad, and lots more.

Check out the list of “leaks” below.

However, what is pretty interesting, is that a fan replied questioning if Gunn meant all the rumors or just some.

“I don’t know. Some of it could be right in a blindfolded-hitting-the-dartboard way. But it seems to be made up,” tweeted Gunn.

Another fan also questioned if it is true that Gunn could have directed any DC property that he wanted to, including Batman or Superman, which saw Gunn reply he wasn’t interested in Batman because he knew Matt Reeves was tackling the Dark Knight.

“I never discussed Batman as I knew it was already in process with the great @mattreevesLA, but anything in the catalog, yes. But I have a deep love for The Suicide Squad through the Ostrander books (& the Glass books actually) & the Dirty Dozen film which inspired them,” tweeted Gunn.

Regarding the rumors, worth a mention is that some of them have already been rumored and some could be a given as well as guess work.
