Thanos Co-Creator Jim Starlin Says Disney Made A Mistake Firing GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Director James Gunn

The backlash against Disney's decision to fire James Gunn continues as Thanos co-creator has now weighed in on the matter and believes the studio has made a huge mistake letting the trolls win this one.

In recent months, James Gunn has gone from sharing behind the scenes looks at the Guardians of the Galaxy movies on his Twitter account to making his political opinions known on an almost hourly basis. Unfortunately, that backfired on him last week when some people who oppose his stance decided to dig up some Tweets from nearly a decade ago that led to Disney deciding to fire him from the MCU.

A number of actors involved with the Marvel Studios franchise have weighed in on the matter recently but now Thanos co-creator Jim Starlin - whose characters have frequently been used in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies - has shared his thoughts and he too believes that Disney has made a mistake.


"After giving it a couple days to think over this James Gunn/Disney controversy, I've come to the conclusion that the Mouse got played. Yes, Gunn's decade-old tweets were distasteful and stupid, but clearly meant to be foolishly provocative rather than taken as advocacy. The whole uproar over them was plainly ginned up by two Breitbart hatchet men, John Nolte and Mike Cernovich, in response to Rosanne Barr's firing for her repeated hate-filled and racist tweets. I have to agree with Dave Bautisa on this one. Disney accepted a ridiculous apple and oranges argument and made one hell of a bad call."

The petition asking Disney to re-hire James Gunn has now gained over 250,000 signatures and it's going to be very interesting seeing if they take note of that, especially as the likes of Starlin and Dave Bautista have been very vocal about their decision to fire the filmmaker.
