The sad thing is the individual that went back to find all those old tweets which were pointed out to Disney is now reposting them on Twitter to protest his reinstatement. :eek:

Not that he has an axe to grind.

His apology was well spoken/written and sincere.  That was good enough for me.

 

The cast obviously loved working with him (which says more about his character than anything else).  This was the right outcome(thumbsu

Pretty cool. He took it on the chin with class...seemingly moved on and kept quiet about it, but we all know it had to be eating him up inside. Happy for the guy, MCU IS his passion. Pretty rare to see a reversal like this these days...

I'm assuming suicide squad and GotG3 don't conflict? Haven't reconciled their schedules...

**Disregard. Came back to edit. I see now they are actively deconflicting. Apparently Disney is the one accommodating.**

This news surprised me. Disney did the right thing, not only in initially firing him, but in giving him this second chance.

I applaud Disney for giving someone a second chance. And now we will get a good guardians 3 and I hope to see Adam warlock. 

backlash and fear of loss of revenue were more prevalent here I think. :)

I wonder if DC/Warner hiring Gunn for Suicide Squad 2 made Disney/Marvel rethink that maybe they should rehire Gunn back for GOTG 3?

Weren’t there some here who agreed with Disney’s firing and how they needed to move forward because they couldn’t continue with him based on the comments he made

After the James Gunn news, it looks like some rushed to update the wiki page covering his life and work.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Gunn

Since this situation has detractors and supporters involved, interesting how deep this will get with editors rushing to 'share the details' from their point of view.

Getting Gunn fired was/is one of his claims to fame.

Must suck to realize it was all for naught.

You are not kidding. Him and his followers were on fire yesterday, posting all sorts of old tweets with wild stories to enhance their message.

Nuts!

Me, for one. His comments weren't life ending, but they were gross and serious, and Disney has to not only protect their multi billion dollar company, but their reputation. This was smart, and the right thing.

Yes, but people can change their minds like Disney did here. I wasn't to keen on BvS & JL when they 1st came out in theaters but gave them another shot from home & ended up enjoying them more. Not sure how much of a point they made firing him now that they decided to bring him back. He certainly wasn't blacklisted in Hollywood like Lori Loughlin seems to be after the college scandal.

Hilarious. If people only knew what their beloved celebrities said behind closed doors. :eyeroll:

I'm glad Gunn is back. It's his baby, as far as I'm concerned. Some tasteless jokes weren't enough to merit his firing in the first place.
