James Gunn Reinstated as Guardians of the Galaxy 3 Director

Deadline is reporting that Disney has reinstated James Gunn as the writer and director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

"What nearly no one knew was that Marvel and Disney had never undertaken a search and had gone back to Gunn and made a deal.in secret, according to insiders".

Disney has rehired the filmmaker to write and direct the third installment of the Marvel superhero franchise, "Guardians of the Galaxy". Gunn had been fired back in July by Disney after old tweets emerged that showed Gunn joking about pedophilia and rape, The Associated Press reported.

"The decision to rehire Gunn -he was sacked 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 - was one that was mulled and actually made months ago, following conversations with Disney studio leadership and the team at Marvel Studios". After a controversy grew, Gunn apologized - and was sacked anyway. "As I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humor", he said in a statement at the time.

"It's not to say I'm better, but I am very, very different than I was a few years ago; today I try to root my work in love and connection and less in anger". Early on after Gunn's dismissal, it was confirmed the studio planned to utilize Gunn's script - which had been turned in prior to his firing.

The 'Guardians" cast released an open letter later that month in full support of Gunn. Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said, "The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James' Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio's values, and we have severed our business relationship with him".
