It seems that despite a very public and controversial tie severing, Marvel will still be using James Gunn’s script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
During a recent interview with Cinema Blend, Marvel Studio President Kevin Feige talked about the influence James Gunn had on Avengers: Infinity War and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film and stated that they were still using the script:
His influence was Guardians. It was Guardians. It was his input on Guardians and the Avengers films, as you’ve seen in Infinity War, and on the Guardians 3 script, which we’re still using. So you’ll see that influence. I think online, sort of the notion of ‘architect across multiple cosmic things’ was slightly blown out of proportion.
From the look of things, they still want James Gunn’s script even if they no longer want him as the face of Guardians of the Galaxy.
James Gunn was, of course, very publically fired from Marvel after a series of old Tweets reemerged of him making a series of controversial jokes. It later turned out that the so-called outraged was perpetrated by alt-right Twitter groups that wanted to see the director defamed. Disney, however, did not relent and stood by their decision. But from the look of things, his influence will still be felt in the upcoming film.
What do you all make of this news? Are you happy that James Gunn’s script will be used in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3? Do you want to see him rehired as the director? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
James Gunn is currently tapped to write and direct the sequel to Suicide Squad. A release date has yet to be revealed.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
