James Gunn will direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3


Oh snap! This is an unexpected but welcome development. It seems that Disney has rehired James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

Gunn was fired last July when some old Tweets of Gunn’s resurfaced.

However, according to Deadline, since then “Walt Disney Studios president Alan Horn met with Gunn on multiple occasions to discuss the situation. Persuaded by Gunn’s public apology and his handling of the situation after, Horn decided to reverse course and reinstate Gunn.

The social media messages were indefensible, but the filmmaker never did anything but blame himself for poor judgment displayed at a time when he was emerging from the Troma film factory and attempting to be a provocateur. There were no reports that Gunn ever engaged in the behavior he lampooned. Unlike the defensive posture exhibited by Kevin Hart that led him to skip hosting the Oscars, Gunn fell on his sword early and often and never lashed out at Disney.

Ultimately, Gunn’s missives were poorly chosen words and not actions, though Disney’s quick trigger was completely understandable when the social media messages were first reported by outlets like Fox News. Those outlets reported that Gunn’s missives were exposed as payback for Gunn being a vocal critic of President Donald Trump.”

Personally, I am happy he is back and think it will benefit the third Guardians movie. Of course, Gunn is also working on The Suicide Squad for DC so there will be a couple of Gunn superhero movies heading our way.

How do you feel about Gunn being back?
