James Gunn Could Return to Direct a Different MCU Movie

Dave Bautista says he'll quit Guardians Vol. 3 if Disney doesn't use James Gunn's script

A new report claims that, while Gunn is no longer attached to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, he could potentially be re-hired for another Disney project, including an MCU film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gunn is being courted by competing studios, all of whom would "work with him in a heartbeat".

Multiple sources told the news outlet Gunn is stuck in "complicated negotiations with Disney over his exit settlement", and that Disney's plans to use his script is playing a role in that. "Major players said to be interested in Gunn's services run the gamut between studios, including Warner Bros., which has its rival superhero movies via DC Entertainment, and high-profile and Oscar-winning producers".

After the comments were brought to the attention of Disney, they issued the statement, "The offensive attitudes and statements on James' Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio's values, and we have severed our business relationship with him". 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.

It was reported recently that Dave Bautista was displeased with the firing by Disney of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn.

Well, Bautista has now been chatting to Shortlist about the whole situation, and again, he's certainly not mincing his words as he reveals that he'll ask to be released from his contract if Marvel doesn't use James Gunn's script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Dave Bautista doesn't want to have any part of that. Nevertheless, it would appear this media narrative has miles to go before Disney can gratefully see it sleep.

Back in July, Walt Disney Studios dismissed Gunn from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 due to Gunn's past controversial tweets.
