Ragnarok director, maybe? Taika Waititi. Seems like he'd be a natural fit and has already worked for Marvel.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
I see people already suggesting Taika. I honestly think his kind of humor (judging by Ragnarok) is very different from Gunn's in Guardians. So I'd rather not see him directing GoTG V.3.
I hope they find someone new with similar type of humor.
I'll just say if Disney were to get Joss Whedon to replace Gunn, it would make absolutely no sense considering the man tweeted that he wished that Paul Ryan would be raped to death by a rhinoceros. He also poked fun at cancer survivors who visited Ryan. Plus, his fan website was shut down after all of the awful things that were revealed about him in an essay that his ex-wife had written.
Some of the things he's written since leaving the MCU have been crazy and shockingly awful. People in Hollywood and elsewhere need to really think before they post on social media.
I don't think there is any chance of happening, but OMG please! That would be amazing.
Taika Waititi is a natural fit for GOTG3.
Taika's humor is definitely different than the one from Gunn's but i do think it's better too.
Still it's a big task to step in and take the reigns of the GOTG. This was Gunn's project and it's a shame he couldn't wrap it up. Now someone needs to take that baton and finish the race with these characters and their stories. Also it's not easy to just come in and do it. Some directors may not want to do it because they respect Gunn's vision and they wouldn't like to take it away from him.
The next director needs to be able to craft the movie with the DNA that Gunn already set for this franchise. I do think Waititi is the guy to take it over. The same creative DNA runs in their veins.
I want Waititi to stay with Thor. No need to take him into GOTG territory, imo.
Shame on me, but I've never seen any Taika movie with the exception of Ragnarok.
Judging only by that, I feel like they're completely different. Ragnarok was a very fun movie for me, but not funny. The kind of humor was more physical and I didn't enjoy much. Guardians had a more "whip-smart" kind of humor, which is why I feel like Edgar Wright is a great choice, judging by Scott Pilgrim (not that it's believable that Disney will hire him).
Edgar Wright will never do it. So I think recommending him kind of is pointless.
We're assuming there will even be a 4th Thor in that scenario. The jury is out on that.
This thing was supposed to shoot in January, yes? They obvious step would seem to be to look in-house, so Taika makes sense from that POV. The sensibilities are similar in some cases and he'd do a great job.
If they look elsewhere, then it's much more work obviously. Marvel decides very meticulously who they hire, it's often a lengthy process. Time is a factor unless they push it.
this is total bull ****
Someone who hasn't made tweets about inappropriately touching children
What he says on his tweets has NOTHING to do with him as a director, and since Disney knew all about this BEFORE he did the first GUARDIANS for them this makes ZERO sense.
And also ones about rape victims and those with AIDS.
Wright, if he was interested at all, would want plenty time to re-write the script to his own liking. So I'd say if Marvel is looking at filming in the first half of next year then Wright would be out of the question (He's also working on his own stuff, like Baby Driver 2).
Waititi is in the middle of Jojo Rabbit, which started filming at the end of May, hasn't yet wrapped, and will probably be in post-production until next year. He's out.
I disagree with both of those statements. Black didn't need the same vibe as Favreau, the Russo's didn't need the same vibe as Johnston (or Whedon), Waititi didn't need the same vibe as Brannagh (or Taylor), etc, etc.
Any worthwhile director who steps in will want to put their own stamp on it.
And, I think Waititi's vibe is way different to Gunn's.
The tweets might have nothing to do with him as a director but they have everything to do with him as a person. Some of those tweets were vile, some even gave 'directions' on how to violate children. I completely understand the decision Marvel had to take and I hope the FBI are all up in his hard drive
But him needing to delete nearly 10K tweets that were in poor taste do speak to who he is as a director as even though he's toned it down in his latest works, that edge from those tweets is still there. Plus, the first time he had to apologize were for blog posts, not his tweets.
Definitely not Donald Glover then. They should probably fire him too.
