Deadline also reports that James Gunn will be back to direct the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy 3.”
“EXCLUSIVE: Redemption and second chances have long been superhero movie staples, and today it looks like life has imitated art. Iâ€™ve learned that Disney has reinstated James Gunn as the writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and Iâ€™ve confirmed it with Marvel and Gunnâ€™s camp.
The decision to rehire Gunn â€“he was fired last July by Disney after alt-right journalists made public a fusillade of decade old social media missives that made light of pedophilia and rape â€” was one that was mulled and actually made months ago, following conversations with Disney studio leadership and the team at Marvel Studios. Why the change of heart? After the firing, Walt Disney Studios president Alan Horn met with Gunn on multiple occasions to discuss the situation. Persuaded by Gunnâ€™s public apology and his handling of the situation after, Horn decided to reverse course and reinstate Gunn.”
