Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3: Marvel "Unlikely" To Rehire James Gunn

Despite the news that Disney MIGHT be willing to talk to James Gunn about rehiring him for Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3 - and whatever wider Marvel position he was to have for future projects - and a cast letter calling for him to be reinstating by Disney, don't expect it to happen. No one from Disney officially went on record, but according to insiders the studio was not aware of Gunn's specific controversial Tweets from 2009-2012 that were recently unearthed, and considers them unacceptable in the current socio-political environment. "Those tweets were so terrible and Disney has a different standard then [sic] other studios". "Depending on how long it takes to land the right director, Disney may in fact wind up pushing back the film's original February 2019 start date".

Apparently, Disney is looking for someone outside of the MCU family because of directors like Reed, Waititi, Jon Favreau and the Russo Brothers already being busy with "prior obligations".

The firing of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has been met with outrage from a large portion of Hollywood with celebrities like Selma Blair standing by him and quitting Twitter over the controversy.

"I'll have to fill you in on that later if I can", Whittingham said when asked about Meyer's situation following practice. A hearing to discuss the merits of her complaint was scheduled for Friday morning, but has been moved to September 14.

"We were all shocked by (Gunn's) abrupt firing last week and have intentionally waited these ten days to respond in order to think, pray, listen, and discuss", the letter, signed Guardians of the Galaxy, reads.

"Although I don't support James Gunn's inappropriate jokes from years ago, he is a good man". All I can do now, beyond offering my honest and heartfelt regret, is to be the best human being I can be: accepting, understanding, committed to equality, and far more thoughtful about my public statements and my obligations to our public discourse. Marvel is known for going for filmmakers with a voice who don't necessarily always have a big-budget film under their belt.

However, now it is being reported that Disney is in no hurry and feels no pressure to quickly act on Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
