Disney And Marvel May Reinstate James Gunn As GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3's Director
According to Variety, there is talk within Disney and Marvel of reinstating James Gunn as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 but the decision will ultimately come down to just one person...
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.
