According to Deadline, James Gunn was rehired by Marvel and Disney to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Marvel would never have thought of hiring another filmmaker for the job, just hoping to get Gunn back.
So much so that he would have made a deal to start production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 only when the DC film of which Gunn is director is finished. He’s ahead of the Suicide Squad sequence.
Understand the case:
The director had made old tweets with jokes that talked about rape, pedophilia and other controversial topics.
Gunn spoke up apologizing and claiming that he changed: “Many people who have followed my career from the beginning know that I saw myself as a provocative person, making films and telling jokes about outrageous topics and taboos. As I have spoken openly before, I developed as a person, as well as in my work and in my mood! I am a very different person. Anyway, this is the truth: I used to make offensive jokes. I don’t do it anymore. “.
In Gunn’s resignation statement, Disney stated: “The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’s Twitter are unjustifiable and inconsistent with the studio’s values, so we ended our professional relationship with him.”
