    As a fan of the first 2 movies, I support this decision. You shouldn’t screw up a big hit franchise over some silly internet jokes that were in bad taste. It’s not like he did something really horrible like bribe a college admissions officer to get his kids into a good school. Unfortunately, it looks like GotG 3 will have to wait for him to complete Suicide Squad 2.

    EXCLUSIVE: Redemption and second chances have long been superhero movie staples, and today it looks like life has imitated art. I’ve learned that Disney has reinstated James Gunn as the writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and I’ve confirmed it with Marvel and Gunn’s camp.

    Nebula survived. Shes giving Tony some blue mechanical space ass and the videos to Pepper are guilt driven.

    Thirded. Christopher Nolan this guy is not. I don't understand the big deal about those two movies (or really him as a director) other than it seems to be some kind of geek cred to be bananas over them/him. Reminds me of when Matthew Vaughn was all the rage and now no one gives a shit. I mean, part 1 was fun but I could have lived without anymore.

    Never even heard of Matthew Vaughn. Is he related to Vince?

    They had to do it - no one else could be plugged in and have the same feel.

    Joss Whedon found success by having all his characters talk like they’re 14, James Gunn outdid him by having them talk like they’re 7.

    You know I’m right.

    He was another nerd director some people overhyped. He directed the first Kick Ass, X-Men First Class, and something else I'm forgetting. Entertaining movies like GOTG but nothing groundbreaking. For godssake as of next week they'll be able to make true Marvel X-Men and Fantastic Four movies, so I don't get why people give a flying fuck for this.

    It wasn’t terrible but it was in no way shape or form anywhere as good as the first one.

    I appreciate that both GotG films dabbled into the portion of the Marvel Universe and at least getting us closer to the Power Cosmic side of things but it felt like a meandering detour of a sequel.
