According to the report from Deadline - which was confirmed with Marvel Studios and James Gunn's camp - Walt Disney Studios president Alan Horn met with Gunn on multiple occasions to discuss what had led to his firing.
But Gunn's dismissal was passionately protested by many, including the Guardians cast.
After Gunn issued a public apology, Horn chose to reinstate the director. Disney, a family company that doesn't truck with that sort of thing, fired Gunn, who was immediately contrite and took full responsibility for his dumb bad tweets.
When Gunn was sacked, he issued a statement apologizing for his controversial tweets. According to Friday's Deadline report, Horn was swayed by those meetings - and Gunn's public apology - to re-hire the writer/director. "As I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humor", he said in a statement at the time.

A statement posted on the ministry's website said Minh requested the Malaysian court conduct a fair trial and free Huong. On Monday (March 11), the Shah Alam High Court granted a discharge not amounting to an acquittal to Siti Aisyah .
James Gunn is getting a second chance. "I am very, very different than I was a few years ago; today I try to root my work in love and connection and less in anger". I deeply appreciate Disney's decision and I am excited to continue making films that investigate the ties of love that bind us all. The script was completed before Gunn was sacked, so at least some work may be able to move forward without Gunn being involved. "Love to you all".
Gunn then moved to Warner Bros. and DC where he wrote the screenplay for, and is set to direct, The Suicide Squad - the sequel to 2016's Suicide Squad. "My days saying something just because it's shocking and trying to get a reaction are over".
The film was previously said to have a 2020 release date, but there has not yet been an announcement for when the movie will instead begin production or debut.
