Disney Won't Re-Hire James Gunn For Guardians 3

James Gunn

In the wake of James Gunn's sudden and unexpected firing from Guardians 3, voices across the industry have spoken up in his defence - including the Guardians cast themselves.

One would think that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige would have been there to help make the case for James Gunn's reinstatement, but he was said to be out of town (possibly on the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home across the pond) and thus unable to attend.

"Sources added that while it was rumored that Feige was pushing to bring Gunn back, Feige stands by the studio's decision to not bring back the Guardian director for the third installment". Gunn was sacked last month after tweets with jokes about pedophilia and rape resurfaced online. Dave Bautista, who plays Drax in the franchise, has even threatened to quit if Marvel Studios don't use Gunn's script for the three-quel.

According to Variety, although a new director will have to be hired for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Gunn's script is believed to form the basis of the movie. We'll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding the Disney/Gunn situation, as well as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, as more information becomes available. Disney tries more than almost every studio to hold onto their family friendly image, and rehiring a director that they fired for making pedophilic jokes would certainly do more bad than good for their image.

Variety reports that despite rising public support for Gunn and a big push from his representatives, Disney chair Alan Horn issued the final call not to reinstate Gunn after meeting with him.

Efforts to get Disney to reappoint James Gunn as director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 have seemingly fallen on deaf ears.

It was previously reported that Marvel was trying to convince Disney to potentially re-sign Gunn in the wake of the controversy. The report says that Feige supports Disney's decision in not rehiring Gunn. It is still unknown if the production schedule will be affected by the change in the director's seat.
