Director James Gunn Rehired By Disney For 'Guardians Of The Galaxy 3'

The surprising news that Disney reversed its decision to fire Gunn broke on Friday, March 15, but apparently Disney's decision to rehire Gunn and have him direct Guardians Vol. 3 actually happened months ago.

In an interview with EW last week, Guardians cast member Dave Bautista hinted that Gunn would return to Guardians 3. At the time, Gunn had publicly apologized for the tweets saying he "regretted them for many years since.' The 'Guardians" cast released an open letter later that month in full support of Gunn.

Gunn has been writer and director of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" franchise from the start, taking an obscure Marvel Comics title about a group of multicolored misfits and turning it into a space opera decked with comedy and retro music that made Pratt a major movie star.

Earlier this month, Larson, 29, opened up to PEOPLE about starring as the first female lead of a Marvel movie. Captain Marvel was set in 1995 with her journey beginning way before the Avengers were formed.

Although Gunn apologized and issued a statement saying, "I understand and accept the business decisions taken", there was nearly immediately a backlash on the director's behalf, with supporters claiming that the studio had overreacted and moved too precipitously to sever ties. All I can do now, beyond offering my honest and heartfelt regret, is to be the best human being I can be: accepting, understanding, committed to equality, and far more thoughtful about my public statements and my obligations to our public discourse.

Gunn's old tweets were unearthed last summer by two far-right personalities in retribution for Gunn's criticism of the current President. "Love you to you all". "At the end of the day, he was making jokes and he was being provocative and he was looking for that shock value, but they were just jokes. That's why I laugh at people with AIDS". To paraphrase Quicksilver, I didn't see this coming, did you?

In the aftermath, he got the gig to write and direct Warner Bros' Suicide Squad 2. "I'm helping to decide what projects will be pursued outside of Guardians 3, where Vol. 3 is going to lead to and then what the next cosmic characters we will focus on will be and how that will happen".
