James Gunn director of Guardians of the Galaxy

It has been nearly a month since Disney has fired director James Gunn from Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 over decade-old offensive tweets, and yet, it looks like no progress has been made to hire someone to replace him. That’s because the firing may not be as cut and dry as first thought. While this may not give us any reason to believe that the studio will rehire Gunn, other competing studios are reportedly making enticing offers to the former Marvel director. More on the story below.

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.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray | DVD | Digital HD

Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: August 22, 2017

By 2014, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was already an unstoppable juggernaut. Still relishing in the success of 2012’s The Avengers making over $1.5 billion at the box office, the MCU took a chance on a rag tag group of not-so familiar superheroes, The Guardians of the Galaxy. For 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, director James Gunn (Slither) blended the perfect mixture of action and comedy, and made some of the best gambles in the history of film casting. The doofus from Parks and Recreation, a WWE wrestler, Vin Diesel to voice a walking tree who says three words… this bizarre recipe generated $773 million in domestic profits and proved that the MCU was borderline infallible. Guardians just felt different from the other good, yet generic superhero outings and it remains one of the most beloved films of its genre.

Yondu and Rocket in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
Director: James Gunn
Screenwriter: James Gunn
Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 136 Minutes
Release Date: May 5, 2017

James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy was once considered one of the riskiest films that Marvel Studios could ever release. It was an unknown property which cast three relative unknowns and gave two A-listers voice roles. However, the film’s surprising success proved that a quirky, hilarious, musically-charged space opera could work as a superhero property. Who would have thought a roguish space outlaw, an alien assassin, an alien manic, a gun-toting raccoon, and a talking tree would be our favorite a-holes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Now they are back for round two in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. As with all sequels to a universally loved film, expectations run unbelievably high. Fortunately, Gunn never misses a beat. It’s absolutely terrific and just as fun, if not more fun, than the first. But it’s also one of the few Marvel films that’s emotionally driven. Check out my full review below.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Soundtrack List

It really wouldn’t be much of a Guardians of the Galaxy movie without an Awesome Mix soundtrack. We’ve heard little teases of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack from trailers and various TV spots, but James Gunn has said that some of those songs won’t appear on the final soundtrack cut. Having seen the film yesterday, there is some truth to that. But there are also some very welcomed additions.

Now the full soundtrack list for the movie has been revealed, and like any Awesome Mix soundtrack, there is an eclectic mix of ’70s and ’80s tunes that sure to get you singing along. Check out the full list plus some quotes from Gunn as to why he picked some of them.
