      Disney Rehires James Gunn For Guardians of the Galaxy 3



      Gunn will helm Marvel’s next Guardians picture






      Disney has reinstated James Gunn as the director of Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, reversing a decision to drop the filmmaker. Deadline was first to report the news, and Polygon has since confirmed the director’s return to the movie with Gunn’s representatives.
      Gunn was fired by Disney in July 2018 after a series of offensive and controversial tweets were resurfaced and publicized by far-right internet trolls as part of a campaign to discredit the director. Gunn’s tweets, some of them a decade old, included jokes about rape and pedophilia.
      At the time, Walt Disney chairman Alan Horn called Gunn’s tweets “offensive” and “indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values” in a statement announcing Gunn’s termination. But Gunn received widespread support from comedians and actors, including the cast of the Guardians of the Galaxy films, after he was fired, believing that Gunn was unfairly targeted by far-right activists with a political ax to grind. Actors Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Sean Gunn, Pom Klementieff, and Michael Rooker signed a joint statement saying they “fully support” Gunn, but did not specifically call for him to be reinstated by Disney.
      In the intervening months, Gunn was hired to write and direct Suicide Squad 2 for Warner Bros. Gunn’s reps say Marvel will commence production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3after the director wraps up production of the next Suicide Squad film, which is set to hit movie theaters on Aug. 6, 2021.
      Update (3:12 p.m.): On Twitter, Gunn expressed gratitude for the support he’s received from fans and colleagues. “I deeply appreciate Disney’s decision and I am excited to continue making films that investigate the ties of love that bind us all,” Gunn wrote. “I have been and continue to be incredibly humbled by your love and support.”
      Gunn’s full statement is below.

      Disney Reportedly Didn't Even Search For A James Gunn Replacement



      Disney reportedly did not actively seek a replacement for James Gunn on
      Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 before his rehiring earlier this week. After bringing Marvel's intergalactic band of misfits, the Guardians of the Galaxy, to the MCU in two well-received movies and subsequently contributing to their appearance in Avengers: Infinity War, anticipation was certainly high for James Gunn's third GOTG adventure. Unfortunately, the resurgence of distasteful tweets from the director's past led to Disney firing Gunn - a move that was roundly panned by the entire industry and, most significantly, the mainGuardians cast themselves, with some even pledging not to return without Gunn's involvement.


      Eight months on from his dismissal, many MCU fans had solemnly resigned themselves to the fact that Gunn would not be returning to the franchise, and the director's involvement in
      The Suicide Squad for DC initially appeared to confirm just that. In an unexpected twist however, reports emerged this week that Gunn had been officially reinstated by Disney to work on GOTG3 and the man himself posted a heartfelt message on social media in response to the news. Naturally, this led to a host of speculation from observers as to why the Mouse House would pull such a drastic U-turn.

      Various sources are now reporting that Disney never actually began their search for a replacement director on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. According to both THR and Deadline, Marvel and Disney didn't seek, consider or speak with any other directors with a view to replacing Gunn between his firing last July and the reveal of his return earlier this week.





      It's important to note that this has not been confirmed by the studio themselves and it's entirely possible that Disney could've discussed replacing Gunn in private without the media getting wind of any potential candidates. Nevertheless, there remain plenty of question marks surrounding the situation, with Marvel Studios giving little away and Gunn himself remaining understandably quiet on Twitter since the incident began. Perhaps the biggest question is whether Disney always planned to rehire Gunn once the heat on him had ebbed away, thereby explaining why they never sought a replacement, or whether Gunn's firing was originally intended to be permanent but behind-the-scenes factors, such as the feelings of both the cast and fandom, forced Disney into choosing between rehiring the director or scrappingGOTG3 entirely.


      Fans may never discover the full picture regarding James Gunn's situation at Disney, but one thing most will agree on is that the director's return is hugely positive news for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Gunn possessed a clear affinity for the central band of characters and brought a certain humor and tone to the MCU that another director would've struggled to replicate. Had another figure taken Gunn's place in the director's chair, the scrutiny placed on them would've made it near-impossible for the film to garner a positive reaction. With Gunn at the helm once again, the GOTG series can continue more or less undisturbed.
