It seems like every single day there is something new to add on to this story. As we should all know by know, James Gunn, who directed Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequel for Marvel Studios was fired a few weeks ago. Since then we have heard every possible follow on from this event. The cast have written an open letter asking for Gunn’s return and many others have come out in support of the writer/director.
Yesterday we shared a story about Dave Bautista getting a little angry end emotional at the situation, you can find details in the related section below. At the point I wrote that article up, we had heard two other rumors, one being that Disney had scrapped James Gunn’s script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The other was that Disney were in fact still using Gunn’s script and that Kevin Feige was working to try and get Gunn back involved with Marvel, so clear as mud eh?
Now we have a report from Deadline who claim that their sources are telling the outlet that secret talks are happening behind the scene. These talks are centred on a compromise that might allow Gunn back into the fold for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The outlet says there is no clash or strong arming going on, but that in the wake of the cast declaring their loyalty to Gunn, Marvel wants to have a discussion with parent company Disney.
One wonders if Disney have done enough at this point to save face, by accepting Gunn’s apology and perhaps donating half of his fee to some sort of charity, could they bring him back? At this point would bringing Gunn back really feel like they are a company that condones the things Gunn said years ago? I guess that’s the real question Disney need to answer.
I’d love to tell you what’s gonna happen next, or assure you there won’t be any further updates or rumors regarding this story, but I cant. In fact by the time you read this, I may be writing up the next rumor or official piece of information? Sorry, we can only provide the information we have to hand.
What do you think of this latest rumor, are you sick of all this yet? are you desperate to see Gunn reinstated or at this point do you just want Disney to hire someone else? Leave your thoughts below in the usual place as always.
