It’s time to wrap up warm, because hell has just frozen over james gunn announced that he would step back from debunking DCU rumors on social media, which has been one of his favorite pastimes since he was first hired as studio co-CEO last year alongside Peter Safran.
Between then and now, the filmmaker-turned-executive has been a constant presence on Twitter when it comes to pouring cold water on all kinds of rumor, whispering, speculation, and scuttlebutt, but it seems like everyone has a breaking point. Is. The daily bombardment must be getting tiring, but those who accuse Guardians of the Galaxy Perhaps being a little too “always online” the director isn’t really going to be sympathetic to her plight.
“Don’t believe anything unless it comes directly from the source” is clear in fairness, but it’s also not how the internet works. Of course, Gunn could have avoided the whole situation had he simply stayed quiet and chosen not to engage with the rumor mills that flood his timeline on a daily basis, but that really wasn’t his bag. So far, that is.
Not that it’s going to do anything to stop people from firing a Hail Mary or two in their direction, though they do manage to actually elicit a response, though it makes you wonder if Kevin Feige Chuckling himself that the head of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has overseen the most rumor-friendly franchise that has ever had a stoic online presence.
