It’s not every day that I actually make a post on current news. But this is actually something I want to talk about. So the news broke probably a few hours ago that James Gunn who was the director of Guardians of the Galaxy vol 1 and 2 and was also a producer on infinity War. Is going to be returning to direct Guardians of the Galaxy vol 3.
But James Gunn was fired
So James Gunn is very outspoken when it comes to the political spectrum of the world. For those of you who know me well I don’t really have a huge opinion on political topics.
Using his Fame which a lot of Hollywood stars and directors do he got himself in trouble. Do not turn this into he shouldn’t have said that kind of discussion it was mainly about 10 or so years ago James Gunn posted something on Twitter that was kind of messed up.
I’m not going to repeat what that was but essentially it was something that was very dark and screwed up. For the time anyway. But 10 years ago people had more backbone if you take a joke.
Sure I’m probably going to get some heat for saying that. You know that there are just some days I’m kind of tired of all the special snowflakes out there who think everything needs to be catered to them just because it doesn’t fit their spectrum.
James Gunn made a comment about something political and somebody didn’t like it. So they dug up some old tweets brought it to light and Disney was force being the family-friendly company that they are fired him.
Some people move on but #notus
It goes to show that guardians of the Galaxy vol 3 pretty much fell into development hell after he was fired. while I don’t think we’ll really know the reasoning Disney decided to turn around and rehire Gunn. I believe a few weeks ago maybe a month ago Marvel Studios stated they were still going to go with Gunn’s script which it already was written.
I believe the reason for this is because of how integrated guardians are going to become going into phase 4 of Marvel. We don’t know what the next phase of Marvel is going to be after endgame. But they have stated several times it’s going to go wait till more Cosmic realms.
A Welcome return
Honestly, I didn’t really feel too much towards all the controversy that happened when he was fired I thought it was messed up on Disney’s part to do it. especially considering was something that he said over 10 years ago I had actually apologized for at least five years.
Just goes to show you anything you say on social media or on the internet in general last forever. Even if you deleted. I’ve never been too careful when it comes to things I say or do. I’m very outspoken and stand up for the things that I believe.
It could also be that nobody really cares what I have to say. But I look forward to James Gunn returning to guardians and seeing what he brings to the table. I’m actually quite glad that Disney made this decision. Was it off the heels of Warner Brothers wanting to hire him to do suicide squad 2? I guess we really never know.
All I can say is welcome back James Gunn we all missed you. You’re a fantastic director and I love all of your movies. Your humor can be a little dark at times but in a world full of special snowflakes I will commit never change.
