Last year, it was announced that Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn would not be returning for the third instalment of the Guardians franchise due to pedophilia “jokes” he made on Twitter that had resurfaced. As you could imagine some fans were upset that he was fired and some even payed for a billboard to display “#RehireJamesGunn”.
Clearly Disney paid attention, as it was recently reported by Deadline that Gunn will indeed return for the third Guardians of the Galaxy film.
For those concerned about his current DC project, The Suicide Squad, don’t worry. Gunn will finish that film first before taking on the Guardians once again. The Suicide Squad is scheduled to be released in theaters on August 6th, 2021.
