Looks like second chances are possible.
James Gunn, the writer of the soon to be shot movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 has reportedly been rehired.
According to Deadline the director of the previous two Marvel films, and also executive produced Avengers Infinity War has been rehired by Disney.
James was fired last summer over old tweets that a journalist used to try and destroy Gunn because of his political views on our current president.
The tweets were already discussed when he was put on blast years ago, still Disney hired Gunn to work on movies for them.
When the tweets resurfaced last summer Disney decided to fire Gunn saying that “His actions were indefensible”
Now not even a year later Gunn is returning to Marvel to direct the third installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise.
Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn met with Gunn on several occasions to discuss the situation. Horn was persuaded by Gunn’s public apology and his handling of the situation after. After consideration, Horn decided to reverse the course of action and reinstate Gunn.
As far as we’re concerned James Gunn is a brilliant and visionary artist whose work shows he can do almost anything. He reinvented his self over the past 10 years and is no longer in the same mindset he was back then. He is an irreplaceable asset to the Marvel franchise.
Still there will be people who aren’t going to approve of Disney hiring him back and that’s understandable, however, we all should believe in second chances, just like how James makes his characters out to be, misfits who got a second chance to do the right thing.
Now that the news has surfaced James has released this statement via Instagram and it is his first post since July 2018.
What do you think about James return to Marvel?
Will his rehiring cause more backlash then when he was fired?
