We all know the drama surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy former director James Gunn and his offensive tweets years back. But could Disney be having a change of heart and rehire Gunn as director? No official word on whether or not that will happen, but according to Deadline, sources have claimed that Marvel is in talks with Disney to see if Gunn could come back to the franchise. Supposedly Marvel is trying to persuade Disney to explore options that might bring Gunn back for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. With the cast being in total support of Gunn, it’s clearly something that would be in the best interest of the franchise.
James Gunn has since deleted his Twitter account, but before he did he tweeted, “Many people who have followed my career know when I started, I viewed myself as a provocateur, making movies and telling jokes that were outrageous and taboo. As I have discussed publicly many times, as I’ve developed as a person, so has my work and my humor.”
Gunn has been working on the script for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”, and the movie was expected to begin shooting in Atlanta in the fall for an expected 2020 release date, though Marvel Studios had never officially announced the date.
