This is good news, I think Gunn will suit the project well.

I imagine Joss and he together are a bit like...Finn and Jake from Adventure Time.

Joss is Jake.

Gunn has a "twisted" sense of humor, perfect for Guardians. He should do what he did in "Super" and have the lead role be a comedian. Pete is known to put his wise cracks before his heroics, so why not? With Gunn's twisted sense of humor and his like for Heavy Metal comics, he's gonna be great! I can't wait to see what he does with the team!

Just because the character is a smart-ass and all that, doesn't mean a comedian needs to get the role. If the marterial is smart and funny (which between Gunn, and Whedon advising it clearly will be) it doesn't matter who plays Quill or delivers the lines. Marvel will get the best guy for the job, regardless of background.

When people see actors they know on the big screen, it's their background that 1st pops into their head. Whenever I see Deadpool or Star-Lord in a comic, 1st thing that pops into my mind is how hilarious they are. Also, idk if you've read Guardians or not but they're a band of misfits. A comedian actor as Pete (lead role) would add to how much they're misfits.

The actor they cast to play Groot is way too young. Dude is just a sprout.

Theres a social justice campaign to get James Gunn fired from this movie. I hope these people get no traction.

If Roman Polanski can keep doing movies after being convicted of having sex with underage girls, then this has nothing on that.

Well Roman Polanski is Public Enemy #1 on ONTD so I'm sure they wouldn't argue with you there, lol.

They have a point that these jokes aren't funny and are in poor taste, but on no planet does that mean he should get kicked off the movie. All it means is I probably wouldn't enjoy hanging out with Gunn in real life (he's always seemed like an a-hole to me)...doesn't mean I can't enjoy his movies (which I do).

Most directors are *******s. I mean Quentin Tarantino is a huge ******* doesn't mean I can't enjoy his movies.

Reading posts like that make me so very angry. Not at Gunn, but the morons slamming him. That post about Batwoman is literally no different than what Stephen Colbert does every night.

It isn't effective satire because it's "too close to what people really believe"??? Blegh.

I'm just tired of all this "OMG he said something I don't like, fire him!" mentality we've been seeing over the years.

I get that people are offended by Gunn's intentionally offensive post. But I'm offended that they want to cost him his job

Just goes to show you that a lot of these folks who pretend to be huge fans of these people once they're hired don't know a thing about them.

Imagine one of these folks watching Tromeo and Juliet

What do you mean? Tromeo and Juliet won a GLAAD award if I'm not mistaken.

Forget Polanski, just look at Victor Salva, and he didn't even have to flee the country.

Granted the post wasn't funny, but it was meant to be a joke. This is just people needing something to be outraged about, and it'll be forgotten by next week.

Wow. How are people taking someones bad jokes from two years ago who has worked on Troma, Lollipop chainsaw and pg porn seriously. Guess they need attention. He was clearly kidding, funny or not. That was no more perverse or insultive then a majority of stand up jokes and rap lyrics.
