I feel like some people didn’t understand why I was upset that James Gunn was rehired, so let me explain. I’m not outraged or pissed off or anything. It’s disney’s choice to reinstate him into the franchise and I respect that, I’m just disappointed in them. I’m not shitting on James’s ability to direct, he’s a great director and I’m sure the next Guardians of the Galaxy will be amazing under his direction. My problem is that he’s not the only one who could do it, he’s not the only person in the world who could make the next movie spectacular. So for Disney to rehire him, because in my opinion, the cast bullied them into rehiring him, is very disappointing. Whether you think he deserved to be fired or not is one thing, but in my opinion there is no excuse for the “jokes” he made. You don’t joke about things like that, especially if you’re someone who’s dealt with those issues first hand. It hurts a lot to see someone put out such harmful words and have no repercussions.
