Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Team

Eight months after Disney fired James Gunn over decade-old distasteful tweets, the studio has reversed its decision and has officially reinstated the filmmaker as the director of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3.

Deadline says Gunn will still continue to work on The Suicide Squad before moving on to Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3, a film, which was supposed to start production earlier this year. The next sequel would have ushered in Phase 4 of the MCU, something that we are still unclear about.

Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is in a state of limbo right now. The film, which was set to begin production this month for a 2021 release, has been put on an indefinite hold after Disney fired James Gunn for tasteless jokes he posted on Twitter over a decade ago. Even though the director has repeatedly apologized for these tweets, the studio felt that they could not be associated with anyone who made awful jokes and terminated their relationship despite him giving the studio two successful films and the keys to developing a comic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While Gunn is no longer working on the film, there are talks that his script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 could still be used. Sean Gunn, his brother, stated that it would be. And now Star Lord himself, Chris Pratt, is saying that it will be used, and that the script is โ€œoff the chain.โ€ More on the report below.

Dave Bautista May Not Return For Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Many have been vocal about how James Gunn was unjustly fired after years old obscene tweets resurfaced because of an alt-right ultra conservative hit job. But none have been more vocal than Dave Bautista. The actor who plays Drax has gone on record saying he would consider not returning to reprise his role. That was followed by an ultimatum that if they did not use Gunn’s script, he would walk out on the project entirely, regardless of contractual obligations. Since then, Disney and Marvel Studios have decided to put the sequel on hold until they can figure out the next move.

While it’s still not clear if the studio will use Gunn’s script – he had finished an early draft before he was fired – it appears Bautista may not return at all. More on the story below.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Drax The Destroyer 03

Members of the heroic cast of Guardians of the Galaxy have already signed a letter showing their support for their beloved director James Gunn, who was fired when decade-old disturbing tweets were unearthed by an alt-right movement to discredit the filmmaker. In the days after his firing, the cast members each sent out their sentiments and have gone as far as asking Disney and Marvel to rehire Gunn. While there was a slight glimmer of hope that that could happen, insiders are saying it’s not likely that Disney would do it. That being said, GoTG star Dave Bautista continues his crusade of support, and is stopping short of throwing down an ultimatum.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Team

Individual members of the cast of Guardians Of The Galaxy have already shared words of support for director James Gunn, who was fired by Disney after ultra conservatives unearthed the filmmaker’s decade-old distasteful joke tweets about pedophilia. The more than obvious lapse of time in between those tweets and the posts he makes now shows that he is a changed man. Plus, the number of apologizes he had made, both years ago and now, are proof enough that he realized that those jokes were poor taste.

Now that we’ve heard from various members of the cast, they have come together as a family to released a signed letter of support for Gunn asking that Disney reinstate him as director on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. More on the story here below.
