James Gunn Restored as Director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3

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

James Gunn is directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 again.

The same is likely true amongst GoTG and MCU fans, many of whom have been angry about Gunn's dismissal, circulating petitions and making further efforts in his defense. Multiple reports confirm that Gunn is now officially back in the director's chair for this next installment in the comic book franchise - a huge reversal of Disney's decision that sparked a passionate outcry from Guardians cast members.

James Gunn had completed his script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and production was scheduled to begin early this year. Persuaded by a public apology by Gunn, Horn chose to take him back.

Eleven men are on trial in Saudi Arabia, accused of involvement in the killing. Aiban also rejected any outside probes into what happened to Khashoggi.


Gunn's old tweets, which were dug up by critics online, included lines like, "I like when little boys touch me in my silly place". Even though Gunn's tweets were years old and clearly jokes, however poor-taste, and were not about anyone real, Disney clearly felt it could not fire one and not the other, despite repeated calls to do so from Gunn supporters.

Revealing the re-hire, Variety added that the move comes after a series of meetings between Gunn and Walt Disney Pictures boss Alan Horn. "I have regretted them for many years since - not just because they were stupid, not at all amusing, wildly insensitive, and certainly not provocative like I had hoped, but also because they don't reflect the person I am today or have been for some time", Gunn said in a statement.

James Gunn is getting a second chance.

"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".

Gunn then moved to Warner Bros. and DC where he wrote the screenplay for, and is set to direct, The Suicide Squad - the sequel to 2016's Suicide Squad.

The cast was very supportive of their director with Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista all signing an open letter to get the director back.
