As the hierarchy of power continues to change at DC Studios, new head of film and TV James Gunn continues to wear many hats. In a tweet where he casually described his day, Gunn revealed that besides wrapping things up with Marvel Studios and Guardians of the Galaxy, he’s also scripting an “unannounced DC TV show.”

What a busy, busy man! Color us intrigued and very curious about what this show might be. There was already some talk about the Peacemaker spin-off centering on Amanda Waller, so who knows what character Gunn is going to focus on. We’re guessing that this new show is part of the first phase of the new DC TV slate rather than connected to his Suicide Squad universe. Another thing that’s worth noting, Dave Bautista has also been on the WB’s payroll with Dune and Blade Runner 2049, so it begs to question if the man who is done with Drax will be teaming up with Gunn on a DC character soon. Maybe... Bane, we hope!
