Although there are still a couple of years left for the DC Extended Universe real start, James Gunn He continues to make statements that make clear his intention to take the superhero franchise to the top after a resounding run led by Walter Hamada.
This time, through an interview with Gizmodo, Gunn wanted to ensure that this DCU will not be a copy or replica from what we have already seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, more than anything because they are two very different editorial lines,
“I think we have a lot of differences. One of the reasons I love DC is that it really is another universe. It’s an alternate world. In Marvel, in general, we see real cities like New York, Chicago or San Francisco. In DC we have Metropolis, Gotham, Themyscira, Atlantis… All of this belongs to a fictional universe. And this is the world we are creating.”
In addition, the filmmaker assured that this first chapter of the DCEU is much more prepared than the House of Ideas film franchise due to the good preparation from the beginning with Gods and Monsters.
“We’re entering a world where superheroes exist and have existed for some time in one form or another, and that’s the universe. We’re telling a great central story. Mind you, I think our work is much more planned than marvel from the very beginning, as we’ve assembled a group of writers to work on that entire story.”
Imitating Marvel Studios is always the fastest way to success because it is a basic but effective approach. However, Gunn has assured the public of him that They don’t want to be an attempt at what the UCM has been until now, but to start from scratch with a good story and some very solid foundations to be able to set up a stable and successful skyscraper.
