Director James Gunn Rehired By Disney For 'Guardians Of The Galaxy 3'

Sthanlee Mirador/Sipa USA/NewscomJames Gunn will return to direct the third film of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, multiple outlets are reporting.

Gunn's rehiring is a decision that was reportedly made some time ago after meetings with Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn, and will not conflict with his work at Warner Bros. on The Suicide Squad.

Early in 2018, director James Gunn revealed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 would be released in 2020. All parties have apparently agreed to allow Gunn to return to Guardians after completing work on that film.

The 51-year-old film-maker, who had been behind both previous instalments of the Marvel franchise, came under fire when old tweets resurfaced that made light of 9/11, rape and paedophilia. The compiled Tweets fast circulated online, and Gunn was out at Guardians by the end of the same day.

When Gunn was sacked, he issued a statement apologizing for his controversial tweets. According to Deadline, Gunn attended several meetings with Walt Disney Studios President Alan Horn, and eventually Disney chose to shift course.

The wrestler-turned-actor said he was not going to let go of his grudge against the alt-right pundits who got Gunn fired.
