DC Studios CEO James Gunn wants DCU to connect movies, TV and games

Warner Bros. Discovery revealed last month that it has hired Peter Safran and Marvel Studios directors and James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Suicide Squad, Peacemaker) to lead as co-CEO of DC Studios, as reported by Diversity. Since then, Gunn has raised questions about DC Studios, the future of DCU, and his plans as the new leader in DC entertainment production.

When request on Twitter yesterday if he and Safran are “planning to offer more DC character TV shows that will add to the story for the DCEU,” Gunn answered, “Yes, most certainly the DCU will be connected between film and TV (and animation).” In a follow-up tweet, another user request are there any plans to tie games to this larger DCU rule, which Gunn is simply answered“Right.”

It’s an interesting response and idea, especially since it seems clear Warner Bros. Discovery wants its DCU to be something more like Marvel Studios’ MCU. However, the MCU’s plans do not include video games because of Marvel’s video game efforts through partners like Insomniac Games (Marvel’s Spider-Man), crystal dynamics (The Avengers) and the others don’t connect in any way.

In fact, the vice president and creative director of Marvel Games Bill Roseman spoke again in September that it’s important that each studio’s Marvel game isn’t connected to the rest because it allows for narrative freedom that the studio may not otherwise have.

This is one area where DC could be vastly different from Marvel, and who knows, maybe that’s the creative side DC needs to catch up with the MCU. Only time will tell.
