By now you have heard Disney have fired James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, about some tweets he made between 2008-2012. Some big names came out to support James but to no avail. There was an online petition to get Disney to hire him back.
In July 30, 2018 the cast of GOTG released a joint statement in support of him. Disney also took a courtesy meeting with James and his agent. However Disney is staying firm on their decision. Back in August, Disney said to put the 3rd GOTG on hold, telling all the pre-production workers to find another job.
I actually don’t think they should make the 3rd GOTG. This is going to be a re-occurring issue if Disney decide to make the movie. Whoever Disney pick for the director, he or she will be criticized, when the movie starts production, when the trailer comes out, when the movie comes out, etc. If the movie bombs at the box office, fans will complain that Gunn should have directed the move. This issue is not going away anytime soon. For Disney to avoid all this distraction, don’t make the 3rd GOTG movie. Also Dave Bautista, the actor who played Drax, has been very vocal and critical of Disney.
Bad news for fans of Guardians of Galaxy but great news for DC as they have hired him to be a writer for Suicide Squad and perhaps directed by him. Suicide Squad came out in 2016. That movie was trashed by critics but I actually enjoyed the movie. This movie starred Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, etc.
The comic book to purchased is Suicide Squad New 52 issue 1, this is the first issue having Harley Quinn as a member of Suicide Squad. There have been some earlier versions of Suicide Squad but no Harley Quinn in it. The price of Suicide Squad New 52 1 won’t go up too highsince Harley was introduced to use in the 2016 movie but I heard this new movie might a reboot. I am pretty sure WB will have Harley Quinn in the movie again.
