Arrowverse co-creator claims that new DC bosses have never reached out


Arrowverse co-creator Matthew Guggenheim thinks DC heads James Gunn and Peter Safran at least owed him a meeting…

James Gunn and Peter Safran have hit the ground running ever since taking over as co-CEOs and -chairmen of DC Studios. While major plans have emerged under Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters’ title, some key players will not be joining the ride. We don’t mean Henry Cavill. Matthew Guggeheim, cocreator of Arrowverse, took to his online newsletter to write a piece entitled “NO GOOD DEED” that focused on DC and the Arrowverse.

“I’ll be open: I would have loved to have gotten at most a meeting… Not a job, mind. A meeting. A conversation. A small acknowledgment of what I had done to contribute to the vast tapestry that is DC Universe. After nine years of labor in that vineyard, I was only able to recognize the small contribution I made to the grand tapestry that is DC Universe. Simply put, the Arrowverse hasn’t led to any other gigs, so it feels — at least on a career level — that I really wasted my time.” Guggenheim says he even considered ending his newsletter for good, writing he never set out to be negative.Considering how frequently James Gunn responds to criticism on Twitter, it’s a bit of a surprise that so few have brought up the Arrowverse to him-unless, of course, even fans recognize that there’s nothing of true substance within Arrow and

Legends of Tomorrow worth expanding on in DC’s future.In the announcement for Gods and Monsters, Safran said, “As we craft the plan for DC Studios, we are thrilled to share with fans the first 10 stories they can expect from the unified DC Universe featuring some of our most well-known characters as well as the next generation of marquee characters…Chapter 1 tells cohesive stories that highlight love, compassion, and the innate goodness of the human spirit, all designed to minimize audience confusion and maximize audience engagement across platforms.” So, no, no room for the Arrowverse at DC at this time…

What do you think? Do you think Matthew Guggenheim deserves a call from Peter Safran and James Gunn about the Arrowverse’s contribution to the future DC? Is Guggenheim a waste of time? Let us know in the comments below!
