James Gunn has been
reinstated as director for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3!!
resurface of some offensive tweets by Gunn over 10 years ago, Disney quickly
fired the writer/director to avoid any backlash stating that Gunn’s tweets were
“indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values”. Outraged fans made their voices heard by
starting a ‘re-hire James Gunn’ petition which gathered more than 200,000
signatures which included members of the Guardians cast.
It has now been
announced that Gunn has been brought back to finish the Guardians story with
his completed script. However, we will need to wait longer than expected as
during Gunn’s absence he signed on to direct the sequel to DC’s Suicide Squad. His
contract obligations mean he will need to finish work on The Suicide Squad
before returning to complete the Guardians story arc.
Despite the delay
fans have had their wish granted as many would have felt disconnected from the
next instalment without Gunn at the helm.
