Assuming Deadline isnt full of shit, this is tremendous news.

Despite being fired last year over a series of offensive tweets dug up by far-right provocateur Mike Cernovich, James Gunn is reportedly back to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3, according to Deadline.

Deadline has reportedly “confirmed it with Marvel and Gunn’s camp.” The decision to re-hire Gunn was “mulled and actually made months ago, following conversations with Disney studio leadership and the team at Marvel Studio,” according to the report.

Gunn’s departure was met with criticism by reporters, Hollywood insiders, and even those working within Marvel. The cast of the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films signed a letter asking Marvel and Disney to reconsider the firing. Disney co-chairman Alan Horn reportedly met with Gunn and Marvel Studios co-president Kevin Feige to talk about possibly coming back in August, but nothing came of the meeting at the time.

Gunn is also set to helm Suicide Squad 2 for Warner Bros.

I love how the press downplays what Gunn said, and classifies the person who dug the tweets up as a "far right provocateur", as if Gunn didn't do anything wrong and the termination was politically motivated. Gunn's comments sounded like straight up pedophilia, it's safe to say classifying them as just "offensive" doesn't quite tell the whole story

It's always a tough question. Where do you draw the line that separates the work from the person?

How bad does somebody have to be before their work gets tossed?

I can almost guarantee Hollywood would have never let a conservative off the hook for those types of statements, such hypocrisy. The guy said some pretty sick shit, but I dig the way he does movies.

Exactly. Im all about second chances, but if he was a known conservative, he would never have been tapped again by Disney.
