It has been rough for MCU and Guardians of the Galaxy fans. The resurfacing of old tweets by director James Gunn got him fired and was forced to leave the third installment of his blockbuster franchise behind. We have yet heard any news regarding a new director or the possible return of Gunn, as various cast members and fans have shared their support to get him rehired. As of now, it still seems unlikely that he will return to the franchise, as recent reports pointed to his re-hiring being a big question hanging over the franchise’s future. One of the most vocal against Disney’s decision has been Dave Bautista, who know might even exit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 if Gunn‘s script isn’t used.
“Where I’m at right now is that if [Marvel] don’t use that script, then I’m going to ask them to release me from my contract, cut me out or recast me. I’d be doing James a disservice if I didn’t.”
