James Gunn rehired to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3

15 March 2019

James Gunn has certainly been on a roller coaster of a ride with Disney and his role on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Gunn tweeted about his excitement and appreciation on Friday afternoon. Before he got suspended by Marvel, Gunn had written a script for the third Guardians film which was rumoured to be used for the film. "Although I don't support James Gunn's inappropriate jokes from years ago, he is a good man", Pratt said.

Deadline further notes that Marvel "never met with or considered any other director for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, despite speculation that Thor: Ragnarok helmer Taika Waititi and Vice helmer Adam McKay were in the mix", which made Gunn's return easier - and that Disney actually made the decision to re-hire Gunn months ago. Horn reversed the decision after being persuaded by Gunn's public apology and how he handled the situation.

After he was sacked, Disney condemned Gunn's past social media posts, which included bad jokes about violence and sexual assault against children. "I am always learning and will continue to work at being the best human being I can be", Gunn wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. I have been, and continue to be incredibly humbled by your love and support. "Love you to you all". "That's why I laugh at people with AIDS".

Even so, she said personal relations between the two leaders are still good "and the chemistry is mysteriously wonderful". Choe's comments echoed the North's usual rhetoric at tense points in its dealings with Washington.

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. "At the end of the day, he was making jokes and he was being provocative and he was looking for that shock value, but they were just jokes".

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 apparently serves as an epic conclusion to the story that began with the first part in 2014. The first two films have made more than $1.5 billion in worldwide ticket sales.

Gunn has been re-hired to direct the third installment in the "Guardians of the Galaxy" franchise, the Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana series about misfits who protect outer-space, an individual familiar with the project told Variety. That film is to shoot in the fall and be released in August 2021.
