You all the know the basis for this story by now, don’t you? After a series of offensive/bad taste social media posts were unearthed by those opposed to James Gunn’s views, Disney formally dismissed the Marvel director immediately from the upcoming third part of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies.
Since then we have had the Guardians cast themselves write an open letter to Disney asking them to rehire the writer/director, along with an online petition from fans. The latest update, of course, was Dave Bautista claiming that if Disney refuses to use James Gunn’s script for the upcoming Guardians movie, then he would ask to be removed from his contract. Well Dave, if today’s rumor has any substance, then this could be your next step.

Looks like Marvel Studios may have indeed tossed out James Gunn's script for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.3. Something I expected was the next step, if this is confirmed there will be a massive production delay ahead for the sequel. pic.twitter.com/qgkcsbdvmC

Now I’d take this with a hefty dose of salt at the moment because I have no idea where the sources for this reveal come from, and even he claims it’s a rumor. Let’s simply keep this in the rumor category until we hear something more concrete. Though if this is correct, then I agree with the poster that this would surely cause a huge delay in the planned production of this movie.
I guess I’m in the camp of viewing Gunn’s faux pas as a bad attempt at humor from his early days. I’d love to see the director reinstated, but perhaps that’s just because the original Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my very favorite Marvel movies, so I am being selfish. At the same time, I can also understand why Disney felt they had to take action on this.
The debate goes on about Gunn, but assuming this story pans out as true, what do you guys think of the decision to toss out Gunn’s script? As always share your thoughts on this news in the usual place below.
