    Doesn't bother me really. I can't say Guardians 2 really left me excited to see another one anyway. I just don't see him as this irreplaceable figure in the MCU, but I appreciate that I am in the minority on that.

    He is absolutely replaceable.

    Replace him with a woman. Someone that will hopefully do the Guardianettes justice.

    Oh man this is terrible.
    So I take it the curse of 'one man never having been able to direct an entire Mcu trilogy ' continues.

    Time to ring up Taika? Guardians and Thor escapade incoming? What about Gunn's finished script??

    He's not irreplaceable, but I'll always thank him for what he did in the MCU.

    I can understand why he was fired, though. And I hope that now he understands the consequences if you post comments of that nature in social media.

    Lets not link to those tweets guys, due to some of the language in them

    With Gunn out, who should direct Guardians 3?

    Taika is my top choice, although if they can hire Matthew Vaughn I'll be happy as well.

    Not pleased for a lot of reasons. Not sure if he's irreplaceable but it's like losing an all star caliber player from your team.

    Does this mean they will hire another person to re-do the script?

    Guardians 3 will probably be delayed.

    I would be disappointed if they didn't keep Gunn's script.

    Replace Gunn with Taika
    Gunn disappoints me with his pedophilia tweets
    I thought it was like 1 or 2 tweets not a big deal but he was literally writing a book and opening his soul talking about pre pubescent girls and boys
    not cool
    Disney doesn't play that
    cautionary tale don't mess with alt right figures they will quietly generate your downfall

    It's not just alt-right folks who'll do this as there are plenty of people of all political stripes and persuasions who'll go after those they see as political foes.

    The REAL issue is Disney knew all of this already and decided to establish a partnership with Gunn. A successful partnership and now they've just thrown him under the bus. I can't respect Disney for such a punk move.

    This is a pattern with Disney. ABC execs knew about Roseanne Barr's history of racist and inflammatory tweets going back a decade and even warned her not to repeat that behavior before hiring her. Then, when she predictably spewed the same crap, they acted shocked and fired her. In both situations, the company wrung as much cash as possible out of its employees before deciding they were toxic.

    This is ridiculous. Anyone familiar with Gunn's early work knows that this was just his sense of humor at that time. PG Porn had stuff in it that was more extreme than those silly tweets. I honestly don't understand why Disney decided to kneel before some white supremacist neonazi scum

    I don't understand why Gunn, a grown man, felt the need to tweet the things he did. They weren't at all funny.

    He made his bed, he can lay in it.

    I think Brad Bird should be who replaces Gunn for Vol 3 and bring Nicole Perlman back to work on the script

    which he admitted in hindsight. so, he's guilty of making unfunny jokes that went over a couple of people's head's...that really doesn't justify his firing
