Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn fans and folks waiting for Peacemaker season 2 seem to be locked horns with other DCEU fans that are hoping for James Gunn‘s DCU slate to completely wipe off the existing universe. Many argue that a soft DCEU reboot cannot be explored when Henry Cavill’s Superman has been canned for the sake of exploring a new iteration.
Gunn’s DC Bible is complete and all set to be announced at the start of 2023. While the label’s architect assured Superman is part of the DCU slate, he also revealed a shift in plans to focus on a younger version of the red-caped hero. Which soon prompted questions if the entire DC Extended Universe will be canned including 2021’s The Suicide Squad directed by Gunn.
Cavill’s exit has amplified harsher criticism from the DC Film fanbase with terms like ‘FireJamesGunn’ and ‘BoycottWB’ trending on Twitter. But among the many that have accepted DCEU’s fate are insisting Warner Bros. does not flesh out any other DCEU characters without Cavill’s Man of Steel. While another section of stans is hoping Robbie’s Dr. Harleen Quinzel survives the DCEU reboot.
James Gunn had plans for Harley Quinn before taking the DC Studios job
lately, Gunn has also faced nepotism criticism from a few claiming Jennifer Holland‘s Harcourt will be an integral part of DCU due to his power over the franchise. The director tied the knot to the Peacemaker star in October. To sum up, all eyes are on the DC characters brought to life under Gunn’s creative wing which includes Viola Davis‘ Amanda Waller.
Earlier in September, Gunn had teased Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn returning in the DCEU. Though it was prior to his hiring as DC Studios’ co-CEO and co-chairperson. Zachary Levi‘s Shazam future hangs on the same thread although there are some presumptions that Peter Safran‘s involvement in the franchise could save it from the reboot plans. These puzzling queries can only be answered by the DC Studios chief but it isn’t stopping the folks on social media from sounding off their thoughts. Readers can check it out below.

If Henry Cavill is no longer Superman, this whole universe has to be rebooted.

Gunn should wait until everyone's sloshed for New Years before announcing PEACEMAKER is the only DC property that will remain in continuity

Since it’s a hard reboot and no one is returning then I’m guessing Margot Robbie and James’s wife ain’t returning too. Right? I liked them in Suicide Squad and peacemaker but sadly it’s a hard reboot. Right?

Look if they wanna reboot they can’t cherry pick what to keep and what not too.
Either everything goes or nothing does. That includes Gunn’s Suicide Squad and Peacemaker.

Just keep John Cena as Peacemaker please

The inevitable reboot of Dc is here and I 100% hope they keep Levi as Shazam, Cena as Peacemaker, Davis as Waller, Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Pattinson as Batman but it’s looking like he’s gonna have his own separate universe. https://t.co/RyCdoE4YeH

Can’t help but wonder what sort of reboot this is at DC. Is it a full reboot? Is it cherry-picking the things that work? Is it rebooting things that don’t fit the new vision?
Time will tell but curiosity is just going crazy right now. Sad for Cavill. https://t.co/7BAR6ScPAj

Peacemaker and TSS are the only things Gunn won't touch, you can quote me on that https://t.co/Bs4zwCuwSb

If James Gunn was going to reboot the universe why whoud Harley Quinn returns in a reboot until doesn't make sense#InJamesGunnWeTrust pic.twitter.com/0AdXXOn2X7

And we will not see John Cena play Peacemaker after 2 and a TV series. Otherwise James is a Hypocrite. Why does Peacemaker get to keep his current DCEU actor and not Superman? https://t.co/CqyEOgyi2k

So sounds like DC is in for a full reboot…..I am all in I am so tired of us DC Fans hanging on to the past. Time to move forward

If the whole DCEU is rebooting, but James Gunn gets to keep doing The Suicide Squad stuff I think that’s pretty unfair.

The only DC Film project possibly capable of dodging the DCEU reboot could be Blue Beetle. Some are hoping it could be the first title from the DC Bible slate with no inter-connected plot points to the DC Extended Universe. Meanwhile, development on Peacemaker season 2 was confirmed in February but no news on a potential release date.
