James Gunn has opened up about Disney firing and then rehiring him to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Disney fired Gunn in July 2018 after old tweets of his prompted outrage in some circles online. In an interview with Deadline, Gunn took full responsibility for what led to his firing and said he bore no ill will toward Disney or Marvel, and said he had accepted that his time with the Guardians franchise was over when Disney co-chairman and CCO Alan Horn broached rehiring him. Gunn was officially rehired this past March.
