James Gunn is returning to Marvel Studios.

At the time, Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said, "The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James' Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio's values and we have severed our business relationship with him".

Horn chose to reverse the decision to fire Gunn, but there was now a small hiccup in the process. In July of previous year, alt-right provocateur Mike Cernovich drew attention to a series of tasteless tweets Gunn made a decade before Disney hired him, stupid thoughtless jokes about pedophaelia and rape and the Holocaust.

After he was sacked, Disney condemned Gunn's past social media posts, which included bad jokes about violence and sexual assault against children. "As I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humor", he said in a statement at the time. Marvel never really made moves to hire another director as replacement and confirmed they would use Gunn's script, which he had already written prior to being fired. "Love you to you all". "I am always learning and will continue to work at being the best human being I can be", Gunn wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. Deadline first confirmed the news, as well as the fact that Gunn will still be writing and directing the "Suicide Squad" sequel for competitors DC and Warner Bros., meaning the third installment in his highly "Guardians" popular series is likely a few years away from release. "My days saying something just because it's shocking and trying to get a reaction are over". The first two films have made more than $1.5 billion in worldwide ticket sales. Deadline reports he will still direct the rival Warner Bros. feature now scheduled for an August 6, 2021 release before returning to the Guardians franchise.
