As the co-CEO of DC Studios, James Gunn has one of many highest-profile and most essential jobs in blockbuster cinema, and but the aspiring filmmaker who lower their enamel at schlock retailers Troma earlier than indulging in grisly physique horror full of near-the-knuckle humor nonetheless shines by means of often.
In habits that might be deemed unbecoming of a studio government tasked with planning out the following decade of a multi-billion greenback franchise’s evolution throughout movie and tv, Gunn has come out all guns blazing to crack the emergency glass marked “yo momma” after a troll acquired below his pores and skin speaking in regards to the Guardians of the Galaxy director’s perceived dislike of Henry Cavill.
As you possibly can see within the thread that exploded into life on Twitter, it began off innocently sufficient, earlier than Gunn determined to carry out the heavy artillery by unleashing the extremely authentic line of accusing his accuser of dwelling below the steps of their mom’s house.
For a filmmaker who constructed their fame on offbeat humor, irreverent asides, and eccentric character beats, we anticipated one thing somewhat extra artistic from Gunn. Not that there’s something fallacious with leaning into the classics, nevertheless it’s the simplest goal to hit when being confronted with criticism on social media.
One optimistic is that we are able to infer Gunn doesn’t have a PR crew overseeing his Twitter exercise, so the trolls greatest beware that he’s prepared, keen, and in a position to chunk again in the event that they throw issues in his route he doesn’t agree with.
