At this point, it seems DC fans have become so desensitized by the toppling of so many franchise heavyweights that they’re all just channeling Heath Ledger’s Joker and are waiting to watch the whole cinematic universe burn. Elsewhere, Andor has earned itself an impressive accolade, just as its star puts the record straight over whether he’ll be starring in Marvel’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

In the face of this, James Gunn is being accused of favoritism and only keeping his friends around his shiny new franchise. Given that, fans are voicing their preference for him to simply wipe the slate clean and start again from scratch, recasting every single hero in the universe. It’d be a bold strategy, but is it what DC needs?
