Disney Stands By Decision To Fire James Gunn From GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3

Though Disney chairman Alan Horn did take a "courtesy meeting" with James Gunn, he ultimately decided to stand by his decision, and Marvel will now begin the search for a replacement GOTG Vol. 3 director.

We had heard rumors that James Gunn had supporters at Marvel Studios who were attempting to get him rehired as director on the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie, and Variety has now confirmed that this was the case - although it turned out to be a futile effort.

Apparently, Gunn and his UTA reps pushed hard for him to be given a second chance, but after taking a courtesy meeting on Tuesday to see if there was any possibility of the director returning to the franchise, chairman Alan Horn ultimately stood by his decision.

Kevin Feige was out of town and unable to attend the meeting, but insiders reckon the Marvel President stands by the studio’s decision.

As Marvel begins the search for a replacement, it remains unclear if the movie's production schedule will be impacted by the director switch. Gunn's original script is expected to be used, but there's a good chance whoever ends up taking the helm will "put a polish on it."

This is bound to stir up plenty of conflicting opinions and emotions, so be sure to share your thoughts with us in the usual place.
