Yesterday, the cast of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise shared an open letter in which they made it clear they stand by fired director James Gunn and want to see him reinstated. Now, Variety has offered an update on where things stand and sources tell them that there is indeed a "growing feeling" that he'll get his job back, especially as Marvel and Disney haven't started looking for a replacement.

The trade also notes that production is set to begin early next year, meaning that the studio would need to move quickly to find a new director, especially as they would need to work on the script.

So, what's happening? Well, Walt Disney chairman Bob Iger is currently taking a well-deserved vacation after closing the merger with Fox and insiders say that a decision on Gunn's future won't be made until he returns to work. With any luck, he'll see sense because Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 won't be the same without the filmmaker. The question is, will he want to return after Disney quickly fired him?

That remains to be seen but we'll be sure to keep you updated on the situation in the coming weeks.
