While fielding a question about whether he’s finally going to get play Bane now that James Gunn is in charge of DC Studios — he’s not — Dave Bautista inadvertently revealed that Gunn is “starting from scratch” when it comes to the new DC Universe. Specifically, with younger actors that can anchor a new 15-year-plan. This would contradict statements from Jason Momoa and Zachary Levi that their characters are safe as well Gunn’s previous remarks that some elements from the DCEU might not be rebooted. Honestly, it’s for the best. Wipe that puppy clean. (Insider)

[Mike Note: Because there will always be a layer of confusion with DC thanks to Batman being a cash cow — unless you let Zack Snyder handle him — Matt Reeves’ Robert Battinsonverse will remain untouched as well as whatever pretentious bullsh*t Todd Phillips is doing with The Joker.]
