Fans are not happy with James Gunn’s new plans for the DCU and might be willing to have Disney take over.

Disney is already very close to having a monopoly on the entertainment industry. With Star Wars and Marvel under them, the Walt Disney Company is a powerhouse when it comes to movies. Now, some fans feel like Warner Bros. have lost it. DC may be under their umbrella for now, but Gunn’s latest decisions to reboot the franchise will change everything.

If the reboot does let go of DC’s main roster, then Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam (2022) will have a “short-lived” legacy with DC, Henry Cavill won’t return, Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and even Flash won’t return. All of this is quite shocking as these actors built the DC Universe that fans know and love.

Now, fans are going to Twitter to share their frustration and some believe that Disney might be DC’s savior if Warner Bros. crumbles from their debt:

Disney needs to buy the DCU

They might get their chance when WBD inevitably goes bankrupt

While some believed that Disney would do DC Comics justice and provide a good experience for fans, others were startled by the thought of Disney finally having a monopoly over the super hero industry:

Why do you think Gunn was there? He was there to make the transition smooth. All part of Mouse’s plan.

The day Disney owns DC is the day they own the entire human species.

Overall, Disney grabbing DC is a longshot since there would be some serious pushback and even some arguments about the company trying to have a real monopoly. Still, fans are right that losing the DC to another reboot isn’t great, but Gunn has made it clear in his recent statement that everything mentioned by sources are not entirely true meaning there’s hope that the reboot won’t take away everything fans enjoy.
