Some time ago James Gunn expressed his desire to collaborate with the actors from the Guardians of the Galaxy in the films and series he creates in the DCU. He didn’t say anything else about what roles he would envision for Dave Bautista or Chris Pratt, but some fans are against it because they think it’s better to find someone new and less known. James Gunn replied.
DCU – castings by James Gunn
We have hundreds of roles to fill. It will be done as I have always done. Some will be cast with new faces, others with actors I’ve already worked with, and some with actors I haven’t worked with at all. The most important thing is that the actor fits the role and that it is easy to work with him.
We have hundreds of roles to cast. As I’ve always done, some will be brand new faces, some will be actors I’ve worked with before, & some will be actors you know who I’ve never worked with. What matters most is the actor fits the role & they’re easy to work with. https://t.co/akXKoj70AS

Kyle Gallner on Green Arrow
The actor reacted to James Gunn’s Tweet Kyle Gallner from the show Smallville Secrets. In the tweet, he shows Gunn why he would fit the role of the new Green Arrow. He can even shoot a bow.
Green arrow? I shoot, can grow the stache, I cook chili often, i wear a lot of green in my personal life and I’m easy to work with…a little extra prep time in the gym and some blonde hair dye…. Let’s get nuts. @JamesGunn #greenarrow #DCU https://t.co/Vucy49I0lP pic.twitter.com/PL9tYRlJbE
