DC Head James Gunn Offers Update on Casting Decisions That Might See Marvel Actors Join Him in the New Universe
DC Universe is all set to undergo some major changes, with co-heads James Gunn and Peter Safran sharing details about their plans soon.
So far, we know that Jason Momoa will play a key role, as his recent videos seem to point towards a new future, where he might play two characters including the King of Atlantis, Aquaman. Many rumours have suggested that Momoa might play popular anti-hero, Lobo.
While Momoa remains in the mix, Gunn has had to make tough decisions, which includes no Henry Cavill, as the director is writing a new film, featuring a younger version of the Man of Steel. Moreover, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot, who combine with Cavill to form the DC Trinity might also not be making a return.
We have hundreds of roles to cast. As I’ve always done, some will be brand new faces, some will be actors I’ve worked with before, & some will be actors you know who I’ve never worked with. What matters most is the actor fits the role & they’re easy to work with. https://t.co/akXKoj70AS

At the moment, Gunn has stayed mum on which characters might make an appearance in his universe. Furthermore, he has also not revealed anything about the actors, who will be part of his DC Universe.
However, many actors from his previous films have shared their interest in being part of his films. Furthermore, Gunn has also fuelled the rumour mills by stating that he wants to work with the many Marvel actors that he has directed through his Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.
When questioned about his casting choices, Gunn took to Twitter to state that his DC Universe will feature both fresh faces and actors he has worked in the past. He concluded by sharing that he will cast actors based on whether or not they fit the role they’ve been asked to play.
So, if Gunn gets his wish, it seems like Marvel might have to share some talents, as many actors might be looking to make it big through upcoming DC films and TV shows.
