Crazy news coming during San Diego Comic Con, as James Gunn is no longer making Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and has been fired from Marvel.
The move comes after some very controversial decade-old Tweets by him were dug up by conservatives who were warring with Gunn over his political Tweeting. He did post an apology, but then he deleted his account prior to being fired by Disney.
Head of the Walt Disney Studios Alan Horn issued a statement that THR ran:
“The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’ Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values, and we have severed our business relationship with him”
Right now the fate of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is not known.
