Marvel has rehired Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, eight months after firing the filmmaker after some creepy inappropriate tweets on taboo subjects were recirculated online from his past.
These tweets were intended as dark and edgy humour, but they weren’t funny and fell flat on their arse. You’ll have seen them online, so I’m not going to repost them here. There is a whole right-wing hullabaloo as to why these tweets resurfaced, that I’m not getting into, but you can see here.
Deadline reports Disney and Marvel reinstated Gunn after Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn met with him on multiple occasions to discuss the situation. “Persuaded by Gunn’s public apology and his handling of the situation after, Horn decided to reverse course and reinstate Gunn.”
Work on Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 3 will begin after Gunn has completed work on Warner Bros. and DC’s The Suicide Squad.

I wasn’t surprised by this announcement, I had a gut feeling Marvel would bring him back after investigating the situation and seeing how Gunn handled everything that was thrown at him. Looking back at what he did, it was stupid and distasteful, to which he agrees, we have all posted or said some stupid shit that we wish we could take back. We need to learn from this and move on.
