    Very good news. Perhaps we are starting to get over this "off with his head" butthurt stuff over things that happened half a generation ago.

    To me, this just makes Bob Iger and Kevin Feige look indecisive and stupid. "We want to be sensitive and politically correct, so we have to fire James Gunn for making asshole jokes 10 years ago on Twitter." And then months later, "oh, wait -- we need James Gunn to help us make another billion dollars with another Guardians movie, so all is forgiven." Idiots. The worst kind of Hollywood Idiots: INCONSISTENT IDIOTS.

    Gunn at least is showing some class and has responded with a thoughtful message:

    Meanwhile, the cast sends this message:

    Marvel has a bad habit of teasing some great stuff and then not following up when it comes the cosmic side of things. I understand what they were up to but how do you bring in Carol Danvers to help wrap up the Thanos epic and leave Adam warlock in a cocoon?

    If Gunn is smart, that will be the last tweet he ever sends.

    You could say that about most of Hollywood. Roseanne would still be on a top rated sitcom if she had only followed her contract, which supposedly had codified language telling her to stay off Twitter, since whoever drew it up knew she was a loose cannon.

    Agreed.
    Adam Warlock is as important to the soul gems/Thanos storyline above anything else in the MU.
    But they cherry pick and reconfigure as needed and its made for watered down story telling in the movies. They’re crowbarring Carol Dancers in for sure.
    It’s painfully obvious. Even w the ADAM stinger in GotG 2 stinger.

    Iron Man was a benchmark in origin stories adaptations. Modernized but fairly true to the origin.
     
    ProStarMan and the G-man like this.
