I do know. But it needs first to prove the author wrong to be used. If we put Death of the Author clause on all media, why even ask the author for what he means on something. For example: Sam Sisavath, the author of Hunter/Prey arguing for the Darkseid that appears as being the real Darkseid even though it would not make any sense as the true Darkseid resides in his own unique dimension. And its true form is heavier and more powerful than the multiverse. So far there is no indication for the Russo's words to not be taken in account.
