James Gunn: Disney rehires sacked Guardians of the Galaxy director

James Gunn: Disney rehires sacked Guardians of the Galaxy director

But I suspect James Gunn wrapping up the trilogy he started the way he wanted will be worth the wait.

Gunn directed the first two Guardians films as well as co-writing 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy and writing 2017's Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Derrickson, Peyton Reed, Taika Waititi, and others have all been very open about their adoration and respect for Gunn in recent years, especially following the news that he had been fired.

Last Summer saw Gunn fired over tweets that resurfaced joking about rape and pedophilia but following numerous meetings with Disney film chief Alan Horn and persuaded by Gunn's public apology and handling of the situation, Disney and Horn have now reversed their decision and chose to reinstate James Gunn.

Gunn's rehiring is a decision that was reportedly made some time ago after meetings with Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn, and will not conflict with his work at Warner Bros. on The Suicide Squad.

So the politicians they know what to change they're just not doing it". "And we will continue to do so for as long as it takes". We are facing a disaster of unspoken sufferings for enormous amounts of people. "Now is the time to speak clearly".


In the midst of the revelation of his tweets, and the subsequent firestorm, James Gunn deactivated his personal website - but not before it had been archived online.

Other now-deleted tweets from 2008-2011 included jokes about the attacks of September 11, 2001, AIDS and the holocaust.

Gunn earlier apologized for the tweets, which he called "unfortunate efforts to be provocative". I am always learning and will continue to work at being the best human being I can be.

Gunn offered a statement Friday, thanking his fans for their continued support.

Disney has reinstated the director after his high-profile firing from the Marvel movie last summer over social media posts made by the director between 2008 and 2012.

Chris Pratt also recently confirmed Gunn's original script would be used and it suddenly looks more and more like it was the plan all along to bring back Gunn.

James Gunn's return to Marvel got further complicated when he signed with DC to write and direct Suicide Squad.

The first two "Guardians of the Galaxy" movies became a surprise hit for Marvel and Disney, totaling $1.6 billion in worldwide box office.
