James Gunn fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Bunch of old tweets surfaced after some conservative activist outed some of his tweets from 2009-2012 making gross pedophilia jokes. Gunn hates President Trump's guts, so he was targeted by the group.

Somebody else here can post the tweets, as I'm on my phone, but mostly it reads like mindless stupidity, but yeah -- they were totally made in public on Twitter and Gunn works (worked) for Disney now, so.

I've got mixed feelings, but it's hard to argue that Gunn didn't deserve the ax, even though it's going to hurt the quality of one of the best movie properties out there.

It's not like this is something we just found out about. It's just that right wing social justice warriors wanted some retribution for Gunn trolling Trump supporters and got some steam behind it.

If anyone actually cared about this, why weren't they bitching when he was hired?

I'm consistent. I'm sick of humorless ****s starting hate mobs to get people fired over jokes.
I'm curious why you used the term trolling to describe Gunn's activities and hate mob to describe his repercussions.
For that matter, your calculus in using the term retribution instead of repercussion might be interesting as well.

whale is correct. right wingers are looking to administer some payback. but they cant do that with a political argument. if they demand Disney fire Gunn for being hypocritical in regards to the 1st ammendment; it's a non-starter. instead, the right wing mob is making a social argument and demanding Gunn be fired for immorality. there will be social consequences regardless of how Disney handles the situation.

BL, have you seen Tom Hanks twitter?

On the one hand, people should shut the **** up on twitter. The glorious thing about the internet is that you can be anonymous. If you want to say stupid shit in full view of the public and it gets you in trouble, well that's kinda your own fault, dumbass.

On the other hand, the social media lynch mob is completely out of hand. Papa John's dude gets fired, Roseanne, fired, Gunn, fired, we could probably list 20 more semi-famous people fired or had their careers ruined without putting much effort into it. For stupid shit. To quote Hunt for Red October - This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it.

Wonder if the new director hopefully will stay true to Galaxy fans. But James Gunn in a sense brought this on himself despite being years old.

Hell, or some comedians today. Louis CK would be much more clever than Gunn was in those old tweets, but nothing in Gunn's tweets would be off limits for CK today. Same for the South Park guys.

Bautista aint messin around........



Over the weekend, Dave Bautista weighed in (yet again) on the dire situation facing the production of Marvel's Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 3: following the termination of James Gunn, the project is now in desperate need of a director, and Disney may even need to push the film's start date back until they find someone who wants the job (you can read more about that right here).

We already knew the rest of the Guardians cast wasn't thrilled about this situation, but Bautista has seemed ... well, he's certainly been the most outspoken member of the group.


Dave Bautista

@DaveBautista
I will do what Im legally obligated to do but @Guardians without @JamesGunn is not what I signed up for. GOTG w/o @JamesGunn just isn’t GOTG. Its also pretty nauseating to work for someone who’d empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis . That’s just how I feel

Elias Eliot
@eliaseliot
@DaveBautista Love your support for @JamesGunn. Do you have any plans or response if Disney doesn’t reinstate him for GotG3?

Now, in a new interview with ShortList, Bautista has doubled-down on his displeasure with the studio, and says that if they aren't planning to use James Gunn's script for Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 3, well ... they might need to hire themselves a new Drax.

Here's the quote:

“Nobody’s defending his tweets, but this was a smear campaign on a good man. I spoke to Chris Pratt the day after it happened and he’s a bit religious so he wanted time to pray and figure it out, but I was more like: **** this. This is bullshit. James is one of the kindest, most decent people I’ve met.

“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.”

He's going to suck Gunn's cock for eternity because Gunn saved his career from a failed attempt at going back to WWE where he was boo'd out of the arena upon his return because who's ever really seen a good Batista match? HW is nothing but a sex cult, age no factor.

While there's probably some element of truth to that, I don't really fault him. He didn't say that Gunn has to direct - only that his script has to be used.

More than any of the other franchises, GOTG is Gunn's baby. Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America were pretty well known before the movies, but GOTG was a pretty niche comic that he brought out of obscurity and made into one of the best of the MCU. If you think about everything that made GOTG great, it all comes back to Gunn. Story? James Gunn. Music selection? James Gunn. Directing (and therefore overall tone and sense of humor)? James Gunn.

I could see GOTG3 working if they 1) keep Gunn's script (hopefully with his music selections already scripted) and 2) have Taika Waititi direct it (who has a similar sense of humor). If either of those aren't happening, they might as well just scrap it.

This. GOTG3 was going to be the final one with this cast anyway.

I also think Waititi would be the perfect replacement.
