Doesn't Sound Like James Gunn's Gonna Have Any Problem Finding Work

Doesn't Sound Like James Gunn's Gonna Have Any Problem Finding Work”

The bloggers uncovered comments that made light of rape and pedophilia dating back to 2009.

Now, a new report suggests that Disney still plans to use the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 script that Gunn was working on before he was controversially fired over old offensive tweets. "Something I expected was the next step, if this is confirmed there will be a massive production delay ahead for the sequel". Dave Bautista doesn't want to have any part of that.

"Where I'm at right now is that if (Disney/Marvel) don't use that script, then I'm going to ask them to release me from my contract, cut me out or recast me", he tells Shortlist. "This is bullshit. James is one of the kindest, most decent people I've met".

It's said "when one door closes, another opens", which may mean that Disney firing James Gunn could be a blessing in disguise for fans and rival movie studios, including Warner Bros.

The story exploded conservative website The Daily Caller discovered the sensitive and shocking content of tweets made by Gunn from 2009 to 2012 when he was a provocative comedian. While still negotiating his departure from the House of Mouse (particularly Marvel Studios), he can't take up any other offers, but several big players (both producers and studio executives) in the industry have voiced their desire to bring him over to their side. Disney dubbed the tweets "indefensible and inconsistent with our studio's values" and fired him.

James Gunn is a director in demand, oddly enough. There's no question that Cernovich is a awful person - he got his start in the men's rights movement, calls people who disagree with him pedophiles, and helped spread the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which came to a head when a man fired an assault rifle in a pizza restaurant - but that doesn't change the fact that Gunn did send those tweets.

Bautista added: "GOTG without James Gunn just isn't GOTG". Its (sic) also pretty nauseating to work for someone who'd empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis. That's just how I feel'.
