James Gunn Shuts Down Troll Who Accused Him of Casting His Wife in DC Movies

“I had nothing to do with the casting,” he wrote.



James Gunn has been very active on Twitter ever since he became the co-chairman and co-CEO of DC Studios, giving fitting replies to trolls and answering the queries of enthusiastic DC fans.

Most recently, he shut down a DC fan who had accused him of casting his wife, Jennifer Holland, in every DC project. Some fans have even gone as far as to say that he is misusing his authority as DC Studios’ co-chairman and co-CEO to give his wife more opportunities.

However, that didn’t seem to be the case, as Gunn explained in his recent tweet of Friday, March 17, 2023. In his tweet, he mentioned that the only DC movie he has ever cast his wife in was the 2021 movie The Suicide Squad, which marked Holland’s DC movie debut.

He continued, “I had nothing to do with the casting of any other movie – anything else was shot a year or so ago while I was deep in Vol 3 [Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3]. But I know some of you are deeply in need of reasons to hate.”

Gunn’s befitting reply garnered a lot of positive responses from his fans and supporters, with one user writing, “The ones who love to hate will kick and scream all day long, but the rest of us are eagerly awaiting to hear more about the upcoming slate of projects.”

Similarly, other Twitter users praised Holland’s performance as Emilia Harcourt in DC projects. One wrote, “She’s a damn good actress and deserves her spots, brother. She kicked ass physically and emotionally in The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker.”

Furthermore, one Twitteratti mentioned that it’s so weird of people to claim that Gunn put his wife in DC projects when he wasn’t the co-chairman and co-CEO of DC Studios. “Do you think Shazam was filming in the 4 months since his ascent?” the user added.

Gunn and fellow filmmaker Peter Safran were named the Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officers of DC Studios in late October 2022. Before that, Gunn only had control over who he cast in the project he directed.

As Gunn mentioned in his tweet, he only cast his life partner on The Suicide Squad. Holland’s other DC project appearance was on the HBO series Peacemaker, a sequel series to The Suicide Squad. And the series required Holland’s character of Emilia Harcourt.

To conclude, fans still have mixed opinions about Holland’s appearances in future DC projects, but most are favorable due to her amazing portrayal of the character.

How did the trolls start in the first place?

Gunn’s professional life mixed with his personal life when it was reported that he was pushing to include his wife in future DC movies. Holland also reportedly has a cameo as Emilia Harcourt in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, releasing on March 17, 2023.

This news angered the already furious DC fans, who began to troll Gunn and Holland on Twitter. For instance, one fan wrote, “Literally the only person with job security at DC and for absolutely no other reason than the fact that she’s James Gunn’s wife.”

“James Gunn’s wife greatest accomplishment is becoming James Gunn’s wife. That woman has more appearances in the DCEU than superman, batman, Wonder woman, Cyborg, Lex Luthor, Joker, Dwayne Johnson, Deathstroke…etc,” another user wrote.

Likewise, one tweeted, “It’s nepotism to its core. Rumors James Gunn put edits into Shazam 2 to include his wife. He’s basically gutting the entire DCEU, but more than likely will find a role for his wife when she literally can’t nail down a part outside of James Gunn’s umbrella.”

On March 15, 2023, Gunn posted a picture of himself alongside Holland and others from when they were heading to the world premiere of the upcoming DC movie Shazam! Fury of the Gods, aka Shazam 2. “On the way to the #ShazamMovie premiere,” he captioned.

One hater replied to the tweet and wrote, “Stop putting your wife in every DC project.” This eventually caught the attention of Gunn, leading him to give the befitting reply — which is mentioned above.

His wife, Nathalie, confirmed the news of his death at the age of 40 as she wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter). Her message read, “Two days ago, on June 8th, my husband, Ben Potter, passed away in an unfortunate accident.”

“To many of you, he was Comicstorian, voicing stories from across multiple different mediums. To his loved ones, he was one of the best and most supportive individuals anyone could ask for. As a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, or even just a stranger, Ben was loving and genuine. He was someone who would listen and make time for his loved ones. He would do his best to make everyone laugh and make sure they were okay. He was our rock and he’d reassure his loved ones whenever they needed it.”

She further added, “He was my world and I need time to be with friends and family. I have so many things I need to figure out but firstly, I need to grieve. I ask that you respect my privacy as well as everyone else’s. Right now my priority is preserving everything he’s built and I don’t have any plans beyond that.”
