The Avengers aren't the only ones making a huge comeback this year. Disney and Marvel Studios have made the unexpected decision to re-hire James Gunn to finish what he started with the Guardians of the Galaxy series. What happened in the months since Gunn's firing to make this unlikely triumph possible?
To call James Gunn's firing in July 2018 "unexpected" would be a bit of an understatement. Under Gunn's direction, the Guardians came out of nowhere to become one of the most successful series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe... pretty impressive for a property that was all but unknown before 2014.
On top of the money the movies brought in, they also earned rave reviews, making talking trees and trash pandas beloved household names for families across the world.
But as Gunn's sudden firing seemed to demonstrate, all of that success meant nothing in the face of corporate mandate.
The third Guardians movie was originally set to begin filming in fall 2018, but was shut down indefinitely after the controversial decision was made to fire Gunn for provocative past tweets.
A few days after Disney's decision was made public, the main cast of the franchise rebuked the company with an extraordinary open letter calling for Gunn to be reinstated. The remarkable show of support left many hoping that the situation could be turned around. But publicly, the company was unswayed, and it soon looked like Disney would rather scuttle Volume 3 in its entirety than bring Gunn back.
Watch to learn more about the real reason Disney re-hired James Gunn for GOTG 3!

I wonder how Dave would have felt if somebody said that about his mother or girlfriend. And rape isn't a word to use. Smash or hit. Most people don't say rape.

Disney messed up its timeline for the MCU now. "The Suicide Squad"(Suicide Squad 2) is being released in 2021.. so it may be 2024 or 2025 before GOTGV3 comes out. Oh Well *shrugs shoulders*

Maybe they did an investigation and couldn’t find anything else. Bad on him so they brought him back. I mean some of the stuff he said was pretty raw. I think his tweets were really gross, but after an investigation I’d bring him back too. Prob wanted more money anyways

Yeah let’s rehire someone who enjoys making light of child rape and rape in general. But Roseanne loses her 35 year career over one tweet. Jussie Smollett gets off scot free but some senior citizen white guy named Rackey who started a roofing business back in the 80’s and owned up to faking his car being stolen yet still got a criminal conviction served jail time etc - the message here is to never confess. Be a liar like Jussie Smollett. Make child rape jokes and claim you’re so hard core and people who get offended because the jokes aren’t remotely funny claim they are triggered. If the weirdos who run Hollyweird get their way they can normalise incest, pedos and beastiality too and then nothing will be off limits whatsoever - yeah great vision you sick dumb fucks. Always a joke seeing people like Blake Lively pleading for people to sign up against child trafficking and sexual abuse yet she didn’t object to working with pedo Woody Allen. Ugh sick and I wasn’t planning to view any of this bs anyway but definitely not now. If it was to happen to James or one of his loved ones he would soon change his tune

"Make child rape jokes and claim you’re so hard core and people who get offended because the jokes aren’t remotely funny claim they are triggered." "Well I don't find this joke funny, so therefore it's not a joke!" Nice logic there buddy. Comedy is subjective, dude.

Provocative past tweets. That’s putting it mildly considering I’m someone who can come up with some pretty graphic shit but gets dry heaves when I read what James Gunn tweeted. But hey I guess that’s why he’s a successful director and I’m not.

"There is little due process in the court of public opinion.....We hope Americans from across the political spectrum can ease up on the character assassinations and stop weaponizing mob mentality." This is so fucking true and it's frustrating as hell. People on twitter don't think, they're just a bunch of mindless animals who take everything at face value. It's a damn shame. And the big companies bow down to these mobs, egg them on, and encourage them. It's time to end the idea that someone's tweets from years and years ago are a monolith of everything that person will ever be. People change over time

I like the Guardians movies and the entire cast,but,if anyone has seen the tweets JG has written you will see a whole different person emerging from them. This man has done everything BUT list all the children he has fucked. Truly a disgusting,twisted,sick,demented child predator pervert. And that is not the worst part. ABC fired Roseann Barr for making one tweet that said a person looked like a character from the planet of the apes movie. And she was correct! But ABC fired her for that tweet. ABC is owned by Disney. Disney fired JG for same said thing,but just a short time later,they got to counting the coin that they would be losing out on in his absence and suddenly pedophilia was acceptable to them and they REHIRED his piece of shit ass back! But guess what,Roseanne is still unemployed for saying someone looked like a character from a movie. How is that even right? As much as i like Guardians of the Galaxy movies and the cast,if Gunn is attached to a third movie,im a hard pass on that. F you disney.

Do I need to remind everybody bashing James Gunn. Disney's legoland got busted for a pedo ring; Disney is the biggest pedo in America. James Gunn only joked about it.

So a kids company,Disney cancels an entire show after the star tweets a personal attack, deletes it, and apologizes for it. All while most people were asleep. She gets dragged through the mud. Gunn makes "jokes" about paedophilia and raping women, leaves them up for years, never apologizes, and only deletes them after he gets "fired". The fact that they never looked for a replacement and said that they were still making the movie with his script. Proves it was a fake Disney told him lay low and let this blow over. Wonder if Gunn gets "special" access to Disney studios. Truth is Barr is pro-Trump and Gunn is a good leftist. That is the only thing that went into this decision not what they tweeted, but on their personal thoughts on the President

I refuse to acknowledge the term "tasteless joke" because humor is inherently subjective. While it might be in "bad taste" to you others might enjoy it. For example Hawkeye's wife puts mayonnaise on a hotdog. The 'bad" joke is the mayo.

fuck that, I wouldn't even come back if I was him. they wanna fire a man over some shit he said 10 years ago (that he's already Apologized for btw) then rehire Him once they realize gotg3 is gonna be shit without him? and as if disney has any right to judge anybody on their offensiveness after all the satanic and sex symbolism they've dumped on everyone for years. James Gunn is better off without the Disney empire, just seen brightburn btw and it was fucking awesome without a lick of help from fucking Disney.

Just a reminder. Gunn's old tweets were dug up by Alt-right neo-nazis (the Pizza-Gate guy in particular) in retaliation for his progressive messages in the Guardians films and his personal life. Looper should have really mentioned this.
