Did not see this one coming, but I’m happy this is happening.
Disney Reinstates Director James Gunn For ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 3’ - ( New Window )

Did he not do the 2nd one?

Because that one pretty much sucked.
Great news

Good. Glad to hear it. I can watch Megyn Kelly on NBC again.

This is great news for Marvel. There was a lot of blow back for firing him. It is believed that Dave Bautista was done playing Drax after Endgame because he was still angry at Disney for firing Gunn. All of the actors voiced their support for Gunn when he was fired.
Not sure how the two things compare but ok

Yeah but a month ago it was said that the ship has sailed since Gunn is directing suicide squad 2. Gunn was reportedly played a huge role in Infinity War and it will be interesting to see how endgame plays out without his influence.

It seemed pretty obvious he was coming back once they committed to keep his script in place for GOTG3

They wanted to use his script but they spoke with Taika Waititi and Adam McKay as replacements. I just read that Kevin Feige has been pushing for a while to get Disney to bring him back. They will begin filming guardians 3 as soon as suicide squad 2 wraps.

original outrage didn't lead to him being fired! Is that how this whole faux-outrage culture works today?

Anyways, he's already signed-on to do Suicide Squad 2, so this isn't exactly great news for a speedy movie. Still at least 2-3 years away.

Were truly bizarre and extremely sick. They weren't funny at all. Just perverted and deranged. But this is Hollywood after all. They lecture us on immigration but are a-ok with turning a blind eye to Michael Jackson, Polanski, Spacey, Gunn etc for all these year
Marvel really put themselves into a spot  
Gary from The East End : Admin : 3/16/2019 2:45 am : link
Most of the cast were in revolt. Bautista had said he was going to try to get out of his contract if Gunn didn't direct.

Plus, everyone they tried to bring in as a replacement director turned them down.

And the whole thing was bullshit anyway. I'm glad they came to their senses.

That's fine, but they were still jokes. People don't get to pretend they were serious statements just because they didn't laugh.

Roseanne?

Jokes that aren't funny aren't a problem unless they're about something that people in your circle support...like pedophilia. Pedophilia joke (that seems more like a fantasy than a joke) = we forgive you, racist joke where the author denies knowledge of the subject's race = death penalty.

To be clear I don't give a shit if they all got fired or people just had a f-ing spine and didn't fire any of them, but it's clear there is a difference in how people are treated.

I don't find Roseanne to be funny and I wasn't a fan of her show, but people that don't acknowledge a double standard must have to try really hard with some awful mental gymnastics to justify their untenable position. Or they are willfully ignorant.

You're right.

Well, the reality was that Marvel and Disney never started searching for someone new; instead, they went back to Gunn and made a deal in secret. It seems as if they simply wanted to let the dust settle before announcing that he will helm Vol. 3 and that's why we only heard about it yesterday (and why Kevin Feige remained so vague during Captain Marvel's press tour).

The movie was originally set to be released next year but Gunn will start shooting The Suicide Squad next so we probably won't see the next Guardians movie for at least a couple of years.

Again ok, show us some evidence that Gunn is a pedofile  
732NYG : 3/16/2019 11:08 am : link
beyond your fantasy that he is. Please, show us the evidence beyond jokes from when he worked at Troma, which deals in shock value, over 10 years ago. If anything, the guy who brought the tweets out is a muchhhh bigger problem. You want this guy to be a pedofile so much, it’s fucking weird.
You want to compare what Roseann said to what Gunn said? Are you dumb enough to see what she said as a joke? Foh with that, nobody believes that.

A certain subset of people want to rail against the “Hollywood” elites so much, it’s comical. And then turn around and support people who harbor actual sex trafficking rings. Not to mention the fact that most of the time when these allegations come out against these people in Hollywood, the guilty party is ostracized from the industry and society at large. Roseann is an actual Racist who said racist things to people of color during the filming of her show, she was fired, and rightfully so. Not even remotely similar, and neither are her politics, but hey, I’m sure that has nothing to do with peoples viewpoint on this situation at all.
There's a shock  
pjcas18 : 3/16/2019 11:36 am : link
one of the chief members of BBI SJW clan swoops in to defend the double standard. Roseanne's biggest controversy other than the star-spangled-banner fiasco was she published George Zimmerman's home address on social media and was sued for it. She tweeted she was sorry that Trayvon Martin didn't have a gun with him instead. Huge racist.

Here is a quote from John Goodman, who would probably know a little more about this situation than you or I.

Quote:
....In a new interview with U.K. newspaper The Timesthis link opens in a new tab, Goodman opened up about the hit show’s cancellation, admitting he was “surprised” by the network’s reaction to Barr’s tweet. (“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” president of ABC Entertainment Channing Dungey said in a statement at the time.)

“I’ll put it this way, I was surprised at the response,” he said. After a pause, according to The Times, he said, “And that’s probably all I should say about it.”

After another pause, he added: “I know, I know, for a fact that she’s not a racist.”


Islamaphobic? Perhaps, if you decided to research anything I'd believe that, a conspiracy theorist, I'd believe based on the evidence. Racist? that's you and your confirmation bias.

This thread is the latest example of confirmation bias, in a world filled with confirmation bias. I like that guy, I'll believe what he says, I don't like that girl, I won't believe what she says. It's really simple. There is a whole world out there if you start thinking for yourself instead of letting the media and others tell you how you should feel.

And let's not forget that she's a comedian. So Gunn being a comedian and joking about pedophilia = yay Gunn! from the cheering section, Roseanne making racist jokes = she should be in jail or at least no longer deserves to make a living.

I'm out, don't have time for your tired media regurgitation today, you're another one of the coin operated lemmings making this world a worse place, not a better one.

Perhaps I'm reading this wrong, but aren't you proving his point by giving the pedophilia claim leniency compared to the racist claim?

I had no clue who Valerie Jarrett was, but "African American" isn't the first thing that pops into my mind when looking at her picture. But given today's mindset, I'm sure that somehow makes me a racist.

Why can't people just ignore people they disagree with? If someone says something controversial it's not enough to vilify them in the media anymore. Their lives must be ruined for daring to have an opposing opinion.

and social media to check the pulse of consumers and act on it. It's a blessing and a curse, all at the same time.

Disney believes there is more absolvement with pedophilia statements, but not racist ones.

You have to first prove Roseanne knew Jett was black in order to be correct on your accusation.

You, reiterating what Roseanne stated, doesn't make you right. This is a microcosm of why our country has zero civil discourse any longer.

"I'm right, because I'm right"...shit my 5 year old says.

Prove she knew she was black? Is that seriously your argument here?
Why would she make that comment otherwise? Why would she even mention apes? What a fucking joke.

Has anyone come out and alleged Gunn has had any inappropriate contact with children? No? If you want to talk about actual pedofiles, you can look at who Jeffry Epstein was hanging out with. Funny how that never gets mentioned.

Has anyone alleged Roseanne calls black people apes? Well, she tweeted it out herself. I’m sure she just came up with that particular insult on a whim though. I’m sure she would have called a white guy the same thing.

How you can not see the difference is staggering.
