James Gunn may have the support of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 cast, but it appears their open letter has not shifted Disney’s opinion on the matter. Disney is reportedly unlikely to rehire the director after firing him last month, despite the cast’s calls for Gunn to be reinstated.
According to Variety’s sources, both Disney and Marvel believe that Gunn’s vile tweets from years ago remain too serious of an offense for him to be welcomed back to the Disney brand.
