Ousted Guardians of the Galaxy director switches camps, tied to new DC Comics film

10 October 2018, 03:29 | Elsie Buchanan

The gig with DC marks the first time that Gunn has been tapped for a project since the filmmaker was unceremoniously ousted from Disney's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY franchise due to a series of controversial tweets unearthed by alt-right journalists. Gunn's brother, Guardians actor Sean Gunn, indicated last month that the studio still intends to use James' script, but that still hasn't been enough to sway Bautista's position and his overall outrage over the decision to axe Gunn.

According to The Wrap, the disgraced 52-year-old would likely take over directing duties from original Suicide Squad helmer David Ayer and screenwriting duties from Gavin O'Connor (Warrior).

James Gunn may have been fired from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, but DC Comics will welcome him with open arms.

If it airs as planned, the show will be the first live-action superhero show to feature a gay lead character. Whatever world we're in, it's very exciting to get a look at Batwoman as she'll appear onscreen.

Following Disney's dismissal of Gunn, which happened just as San Diego Comic-Con was getting underway, his Guardians cast members all spoke out in favor of the director, imploring Disney to reconsider.

This would be a huge get for DC as the first film wasn't exactly considered a critical darling, but if Gunn gets at the helm, anything is possible.

As of yet, no replacement director has been announced for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

In comments he posted following his firing from Disney, Gunn himself wrote: "My words of almost a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative".

'To everyone inside my industry and beyond, I again offer my deepest apologies.

Back in July Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn confirmed Gunn's firing in a statement that said: "The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James" Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio's values and we have severed our business relationship with him'.
