James Gunn

Last summer, James Gunn was in the midst of preparing for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the closing installment of the Guardians trilogy. What happened after that can only be described as a whirlwind of crazy. First he was fired by Disney for some old tweets that were dug up. Then he was hired by WB to write The Suicide Squad, which eventually led to him directing as well. Finally, he was rehired by Disney to finish the Guardians trilogy.

The filmmaker, who is usually vocal on social media, has been silent about those recent events. At least up until now. Gunn is now opening up about what has happened to him, how he thought he would never be rehired, and the status of both The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. See what he had to say below.

Avengers: Endgame

Okay, it is pretty safe to say that Avengers: Endgame is the definitive end for some characters. So for the sake of not revealing spoilers, we won’t say who these characters are until after the jump. But for those who want to know or at least have an idea of which characters will appear again – because they have sequels – we kind of have a small tiny glimpse of what is to come.

For instance, we know that Marvel Studios is working on sequels for Black Panther, Doctor Strange, and Guardians of the Galaxy. But what else could happen to some of the heroes that appeared in Endgame in upcoming films or on shows that will appear exclusively on Disney+? A lot actually. Find our more in the report below.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Team

Eight months after Disney fired James Gunn over decade-old distasteful tweets, the studio has reversed its decision and has officially reinstated the filmmaker as the director of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3.

Deadline says Gunn will still continue to work on The Suicide Squad before moving on to Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3, a film, which was supposed to start production earlier this year. The next sequel would have ushered in Phase 4 of the MCU, something that we are still unclear about.

Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is in a state of limbo right now. The film, which was set to begin production this month for a 2021 release, has been put on an indefinite hold after Disney fired James Gunn for tasteless jokes he posted on Twitter over a decade ago. Even though the director has repeatedly apologized for these tweets, the studio felt that they could not be associated with anyone who made awful jokes and terminated their relationship despite him giving the studio two successful films and the keys to developing a comic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While Gunn is no longer working on the film, there are talks that his script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 could still be used. Sean Gunn, his brother, stated that it would be. And now Star Lord himself, Chris Pratt, is saying that it will be used, and that the script is “off the chain.” More on the report below.

Jojo Rabbit

Taika Waititi is easily one of the most fascinating directors working in film and television. Coming off smaller films like What We Do in the Shadows – which is getting a television spinoff on FX – and Hunt For Wilderpeople, Waititi became a household name with Thor: Ragnarok. He has since become one of the most sought out directors, with rumors like Disney eyeing him to replace James Gunn as director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

During the 2019 Television Critics Association winter press tour, Waititi talked a little bit about those rumors and his current relationship with Marvel Studios. He also talked about What We Do in the Shadows being turned into a TV series and his directed episode of The Mandalorian, Disney+’s Star Wars live-action series. Additionally, he gave some more details on his upcoming film Jojo Rabbit, his upcoming dark comedy drama starring himself, Scarlett Johansson, and Sam Rockwell. More on all of this below.
