News just broke from Deadline.com that the Walt Disney Company has rehired James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
That’s completely justified. DisneyBizJournal looked at the Gunn firing back in July, and concluded: “Disney should rehire Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and at the risk of stating the obvious, free speech and redemption matter deeply to each one of us.”
So, now Gunn is lined up to direct a new Suicide Squad movie for Warner Bros and DC, and then Guardians 3 for Disney/Marvel. Fans of quality superhero films should rejoice.
Investors should be happy as well, given that Guardians of the Galaxy raked in $773 million at the box office, and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 $864 million, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.
