James Gunn Back as ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3’ Director

Disney has reinstated James Gunn as director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3., The Hollywood Reporter reports. Disney fired the director from the franchise’s third installment over years-old tweets that are often offensive or disturbing. A number of Gunn’s tweets mention pedophilia, rape, or young people in sexual situations. The tweets were resurfaced by conservative personalities online. After his firing, Gunn moved on to Warner Bros. and DC to write and direct The Suicide Squad. Gunn tweeted out his thanks for the second chance on Friday. “I am tremendously grateful to every out there who has supported me over the past few months,” Gunn wrote. “I am always learning and will continue to work on being the best human being I can be.”
