James Gunn fired from GOTG 3 and future MCU projects

I donít even know if you can really say they were jokes. They werenít even funny and I have a dark sense of humor.

In his mindset, yes they could be jokes or funny to him and his circle.

His apology showed he doesn't really think there was anything wrong.

Yeah I was up in arms until read the tweets. I don't care how long ago it was or that he claims they were jokes. They don't even read like jokes. It's just him saying really really disgusting inexcusable stuff. It's a shame.

Quote:
Dave Bautista tweeted Sunday that he will appear in the third film because he is "obligated" to do so, but added that it's "pretty nauseating to work for someone who'd empower a smear campaign by fascists cyber-Nazis."

Bautista has been very vocal since the firing, and I'm starting to be a little iffy on Disney's angle as well. Not the firing itself, but this whole act of pretending like they didn't know about these beforehand. I don't know what major company wouldn't do a thorough background check on one of their largest representatives beforehand when relatively-pettier high schools do this before employing teachers.

Which leads to a rumor I heard that Disney is playing the defensive tactic of making them look like the innocent oblivious fools in this whole thing, and then later will play the hero card of "giving him a second chance" after enough time has passed and the air has cooled. By that, I mean that this is something that Disney had spoken to Gunn about privately and that he is in the know on this thing. That is just a wild rumor, but I wouldn't put it past them to do that based on how they've played this so far.

From all of his backing it's clear that he is not the person he was before. Not only that, but this was already publicly talked about by Gunn before. He had acknowledged them and put them aside. He never deleted them I guess, but this was clearly something that Disney was more than aware of. Them playing the foolery angle comes off as a little sad, really.

The whole cast has spoken up and taken Gunn's side, not just Bautista.

Anyways, the third film is now on hold and there's a chance it may not even happen.

As much as I love the Guardian's films, I would totally get it if they cancelled number 3. Whoever the new director is, they would be in an impossible situation, and I can't see how the entire cast wouldn't basically phone in their performances.

Do the same thing tomorrow. And the next. Now do it forever.

Saw someone on Twitter say that Drax is about to be the only one that doesn't come back to life in Avengers 4 lol.

I really don't understand why anybody would stand up for those Tweets.
