James Gunn Responds To Ray Fisher’s Accusations

The co-CEO of DC Studios, James Gunn, has responded to Ray Fisher’s recent accusations that he’s been deleting old tweets in support of Joss Whedon, and his response is perfect! Fisher called out Gunn’s now-deleted tweets that backed the stance of Alan Tudyk, who was supporting Whedon.

However, Gunn took to Twitter to reveal that his account is set up to delete his tweets every few months automatically. I’m pretty sure he did this after the whole controversy surrounding his old tweets that got his fired from Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3.

Here’s what Ray Fisher had to say about James Gunn:

The way @JamesGunn uses fake grace on Twitter is really funny. Him going to bat for Joss Whedon, pseudo-apologizing for it, and then deleting it immediately before taking his new DC job is not. Refusing to apologize for toxic behavior seems to be a job requirement for WB/DC


Along with the tweet, Fisher also shared screenshots of the aforementioned tweets, suggesting Gunn got his job because he refused “to apologize for toxic behavior.”

Here’s what Gunn had to say on the matter:

ALL my tweets automatically delete every few months, Ray, it has nothing to do with my tweets to you.

All of this comes after it was reported that Gunn and DC Studios was thinking of recasting all the Justice League actors, which would include Ray Fisher. Fisher played Cyborg in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Justice League and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

It does seem as though Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot’s time playing their respective DC characters is going to come to an end. We might get to see more of Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa in the future DC movies.

However, one thing we do know is that Cavill and Ray Risher will not be returning to the DC Universe. At least, in Cavill’s case, he won’t be returning as Superman. However, Gunn did reveal via Twitter that he and Cavill did discuss other DC roles he could play in the DC Universe.

Will any of the Justice League actors return to the DC Universe?

Moreover, Gunn responded to all the hate he and Peter Safran have been getting on social media since taking control of DC Studios via his Instagram account. Here’s what he had to say on the matter:

One of the things Peter & I were aware of when we took the job as heads of DC Studios was a certain minority of people online that could be, well, uproarious & unkind, to say the least. Our choices for the DCU are based upon what we believe is best for the story & best for the DC characters who have been around for nearly 85 years. Perhaps these choices are great, perhaps not, but they are made with sincere hearts & integrity & always with the story in mind. No one loves to be harassed or called names – but, to be frank, we’ve been through significantly worse. Disrespectful outcry will never, ever affect our actions. We were aware there would be a period of turbulence when we took this gig, & we knew we would sometimes have to make difficult & not-so-obvious choices, especially in the wake of the fractious nature of what came before us. But this means little to us in comparison to our jobs as artists & custodians in helping to create a wide & wonderful future for DC.
