According to Deadline, although Disney does not want to re-hire James Gunn, Marvel is trying to re-hire the director. For now it’s all rumor.
“Sources said that Marvel executives are trying to persuade Disney to explore a deal that could bring Gunn back into the Guardians 3 group, something that would clearly be better for the franchise. There is no confrontation or setup. The discussion comes after all cast declare their loyalty and support to Gunn … Things are changing “
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 had 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’ve spoken openly before, I developed as a person, as well as in my job and in my mood! I am someone quite different. Anyway, this is the truth: I used to make offensive jokes. I don’t do it anymore. I don’t judge my past attitudes, but I have become a better person. “.
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.”
