Late last week, the Marvel Cinematic Universe world was rocked when it was announced that Disney had fired James Gunn from “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” over his controversial tweets.

Since then, several key members from the franchise family have spoken up and defended the filmmaker for his past actions. They include Dave Bautista, Sean Gunn, and Michael Rooker. This morning (Monday, 23rd July), the main actors, Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana, have finally broken their silence on this matter.

Both Saldana and Pratt were pretty vague in their responses and did not mention Gunn by name. It seems as though the actress isn’t fully ready to comment on the drama. Instead, she simply highlighted that she loves “ALL members of (the) GOTG family”. Pratt was even more cryptic, opting for a Bible verse from James in the New Testament.

Now that “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” is lacking a director, it’s still a question mark if Marvel Studios will used the screenplay that Gunn had written for the 3rd instalment. Bautista was one of the first ones to voice out his feelings on Disney’s decision, saying that he’s “NOT ok with what’s happening” to Gunn. He’s not alone in this as more than 150,000 (as at time of writing) have sign a petition for Disney to rehire Gunn.


Although Gunn has received many support from peers from the movie industry, many others have also voiced out their disgust with him too. Clearly, this dispute shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
