Disney has reportedly rehired Director James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3, according to Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter.
The decision to re-hire James Gunn was actually made months ago, following conversations with Disney studio leadership and the team at Marvel Studio, according to Deadline.
Gunn took it to the twitter to sent out a message to fans thanking them for their continued support.
Gunn’s departure met a huge criticism by reporters, Hollywood insiders, and even those working within Marvel. Many critics pointed to the involvement of Cernovich one of the most prominent figures behind promoting Pizzagate as cause for concern. Gunn’s firing even led to the cast of the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films to sign a letter asking Marvel and Disney to reconsider the firing.
“We fully support James Gunn,” the cast wrote. “We were all shocked by his abrupt firing last week and have intentionally waited these ten days to respond in order to think, pray, listen, and discuss. In that time, we’ve been encouraged by the outpouring of support from fans and members of the media who wish to see James reinstated as director of Volume 3 as well as discouraged by those so easily duped into believing the many outlandish conspiracy theories surrounding him.”
Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is in development. There is no new release date at this time.
