James is a famous creator who made his name in Korea by making the Marvel movie “Guardians of the Galaxy” series. He directed the DC film ‘The Suicide Squad’ and the spin-off HBO Max ‘Peacemaker’. Peter Safran produced the “Aquaman” series and “Shazam” series, and also collaborated with James Gunn.

James Gunn and Peter Safran start working at the DC Studio on Nov. 1. The report will be made to David Zaslav and will also work closely with Warner Bros. CEO Mike De Luca-Pam Appdi.
“James is an outstanding filmmaker and storyteller, and Peter Saffron is also a successful producer,” said Mike de Luca-Pam, “It’s like a dream to promise to work together to create a new era in DC.” 안전놀이터
After the announcement that Walter Hamada will step down as DC Films’ representative, fans have been interested in who will oversee the DC worldview. As a result, James is expected to drop out of the Marvel World Pavilion after “Guardians of Galaxy VOL. 3.” James Gunn was fired from Marvel Studios in 2018 for inappropriate jokes and moved to DC to create The Suicide Squad.
David Zaslav reportedly expects the two to play the role of Marvel creator Kevin Feiggy.
