After last night’s THR report kicked off breathless coverage on James Gunn’s plans as the new head of DC Studios, the writer/director took a minute to address the elephant in the room. While Gunn neither confirmed nor denied decisions like axing Wonder Woman 3, not bringing back Henry Cavill, and making Jason Momoa Lobo, he did lay the groundwork for sweeping changes coming down the pike. In short, the guy doesn’t want to be shackled by the confines of the Snyderverse, which honestly makes sense. The DC movies have been a mixed bag, and if Gunn needs to right the ship by using The Flash to reboot the whole thing — and jettison Ezra Miller — let’s see what happens. The Rock might cave his skull in for killing Black Adam in the crib, but again, let’s see what happens. (Twitter)

bodies are not separate from minds." What are some of your favorite pieces of personal writing? (Cannonball Read 14)
