The earth revolves around the sun, mothers love their children, and Grace Randolph spreads bullshit. Just to be clear, those aren’t our words, they’re those of DC Studios’ co-CEO James Gunn.
The filmmaker and the YouTube personality have been locked in a long-running war of words for several years, which includes this one Protector of the Galaxy The director calls her for unfounded spitting peacemaker Speculations that inevitably turned out to be wrong.
A truce appeared imminent as Randolph actively praised The Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special, but things quickly returned to normal shortly after. The latest twist in the story has seen the internet blown up by speculation that a former Batman wasn’t just added The Lightning as a last-minute appearance, but could even become the DCU’s permanent Caped Crusader moving forward.
Of course, such a whopping can of worms has garnered Randolph as much approval as criticism, forcing her to pitch her comic book references to the barking dogs of Twitter while backtracking a bit on her original comments.
There’s no harm in having another former incumbent of the cloak and hood swing by The Lightning, although it sounds like overkill to have three versions of Bruce Wayne in the same movie. Val Kilmer’s battle with throat cancer would certainly rule him out, while Christian Bale has never made a fan-baiting cameo in anything throughout his career, which is why it’s been noted Batman & Robin Hater George Clooney has appeared at the top of the pile to deliver a phenomenal gag should it turn out to be true.
