James Gunn, co-boss of DC Studios, recently responded to a question from a fan about Warner Bros Discovery’s critical input on his scripts. James Gunn explained how he gets feedback from “trusted” parties on the hands he writes. He also elaborated on how important it is to get some exposure to the script.
James Gunn posted the front cover of his forthcoming Superman Legacy when he announced it had entered pre-production. Gunn explained his process after a fan asked where he got his notes. He explained that his method has always been to ask people he knows for “notes” and that constructive criticism was “the lifeblood of any writer”.
Gunn revealed to whom he turns for criticism at the right time. He said he passes scripts to trusted people, such as DC Studios executive Chantal Ng or DC Comics writer Tom King. In another tweet, he quoted The Shining and It writer Stephen King. In his tweet, he said:
“‘First Draft Door Closed, Second Draft Open.’ Writing, as communication, is critical”. Below are the tweets of James Gunn.
