Latest Sci-Fi News: James Gunn teases several DC project announcements as ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ fans blast the show’s most ridiculous action scene yet again

Can a high budget show like this be forgiven such blunders?

They won’t be able to give you objective justifications for their adoration, but the internet community loves nothing more than to campaign for the middling SnyderVerse, and with James Gunn coming in and bulldozing over any and all chance of a return for the filmmaker, the Guardians of the Galaxy director has found himself in a hot boiler of his own making. Fortunately, the man has just assured fans that he’s going to reveal his plans for the DCEU soon, though whether those plans will end up appeasing the fanbase is another question.

In today’s content-hungry landscape, it doesn’t matter if you’re spending a million dollars per episode or ten. Because when it comes to intricate production design details or simple narrative chronology, many projects are falling flat. Who would’ve thought that a Star Wars television show was going to be criticized to such an extensive degree over a simple chase sequence? But that exactly seems to be the case as Obi-Wan Kenobi viewers bring up Leia’s abduction scene yet again, wondering how anyone could’ve taken a look at that final cut and been satisfied with the terrible camera work.
