James Gunn rehired to direct 'Guardians of the Galaxy 3'

James Gunn Has Been Un Fired And Will Direct ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 3

James Gunn has been reinstated as writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after being fired by Disney a year ago.

James Gunn has been one of the most active Marvel Cinematic Universe directors on social media, regularly engaging with fans in a number of ways.

Back in July 2018, Gunn was publicly fired by Disney Studios CEO Alan Horn over offensive statements the writer/director had made on Twitter several years before he was hired for the original Guardians of the Galaxy.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 apparently serves as an epic conclusion to the story that began with the first part in 2014. Persuaded by Gunn's public apology and his handling of the situation after, Horn made a decision to reverse course and reinstate Gunn.

"The decision to rehire Gunn -he was sacked last July by Disney after alt-right journalists made public a fusillade of decade-old social media missives that made light of paedophilia and rape - was one that was mulled and actually made months ago, following conversations with Disney studio leadership and the team at Marvel Studios".

Gunn's dismissal came immediately in the wake of Disney dropping Roseanne Barr after she made distasteful racist public comments about Obama aide Valerie Jarret. If you'll recall, Gunn was forced to vacate his seat when Internet hounds discovered a bunch of controversial Tweets assigned to his name.

Arsenal held talks with Rennes over Senegal forward Ismaila Sarr
Arsenal became only the second team in Europa League history to win a tie after losing the first leg 3-1. This comeback was very hard but I think our reaction is very good.

James Gunn is getting a second chance. "I am tremendously grateful to every person out there who has supported me over the past few months", he wrote.

"It's not to say I'm better, but I am very, very different than I was a few years ago; today I try to root my work in love and connection and less in anger".

In an interview with the Sun in 2017, Gunn revealed that his involvement with Marvel was going to extend past Guardians 3. I deeply appreciate Disney's decision and I am excited to continue making films that investigate the ties of love that bind us all.

Gunnhas already signed on to direct the Suicide Squad sequel for DC and Warner Bros, so Marvel won't start production on GOTG 3 until he wraps that up. The first two films have made more than $1.5 billion United States in worldwide ticket sales.

It is tentatively scheduled for an August 6, 2021 release.
