Last month saw Disney fire James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy 3 and Marvel Studios over tweets that resurfaced from ten years ago joking about rape and pedophilia; the resurfacing of the tweets was a result of Gunn's political views on Twitter.

Gunn was sacked from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on July 20 after a number of offensive jokes he'd tweeted nearly a decade ago resurfaced.

They were seriously ill but later made a full recovery after spending several weeks in hospital. Ms Sturgess died, having sprayed the substance over herself, but Mr Rowley survived.

While Disney reportedly has no intention of reinstating Gunn on the film, other studios see a great opportunity to swoop in and persuade the filmmaker to leave Disney behind.

Well, Bautista has now been chatting to Shortlist about the whole situation, and again, he's certainly not mincing his words as he reveals that he'll ask to be released from his contract if Marvel doesn't use James Gunn's script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

The death toll rose to 131 and 1,477 were severely injured, the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) said in a briefing. In 2004, the Indian Ocean tsunami killed 226,000 people in 13 countries, including more than 120,000 in Indonesia.

Well, one might assume that getting abruptly fired off a blockbuster franchise would be damaging to one's career, but a new report over at The Hollywood Reporter indicates this probably won't be the case for James Gunn: according to their sources, rival studios are chomping at the bit to hire the guy. Because of this, Disney may have to offer Gunn a payout of $7 million to $10 million - or even higher.

This would be a huge development, though not entirely surprising - with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 still supposedly scheduled for a 2020 release with plans to go into production this fall, Disney is under a tight schedule and likely can't afford to rewrite the script and risk throwing their entire movie slate off schedule. The third Guardians film was meant to be the final outing for the original team lineup, and set up future films in the cosmic arena of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The issue is that Gunn is not allowed to engage in talks for another project until his negotiations to exit are complete. Because Gunn could move over the aisle to Warner Bros.' DC universe?

Fallout 76 beta will provide access to the full game, according to the official FAQ on the Bethesda website. Those still looking to secure their spot in the beta can pre-order Fallout 76 now at Mighty Ape.

So, it's all up in the air for now. Whether that will be back at Marvel or elsewhere is the question.
