People sharing photos of their pets online has always been a staple part of the social media diet, but when you're the co-CEO of DC Studios that's reinventing an entire franchise from the ground up, people won't just sit back and enjoy the picture, as James Gunn recently discovered.
When it was revealed that Viola Davis' Amanda Waller would be writing her own HBO Max spinoff series, a quick glance of the filmmaker's cat prompted an army of internet sleuths to become convinced they had located the source of an upcoming DC project.

The creator of The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker offered an innocently pleasant image of his canine companion, and on the surface, it appears to be the sort of thing that would lead to widespread debunking of The Brave and the Bold claims.
