But the question is would James Gunn want to work for them again?
I don't just think, I KNOW he would if we wanted him to.

Not even a doubt in my mind. Yes. The GotG franchise as it stands is his baby and he would definitely want to see it completed.

A pay-cheque's a pay-cheque.

Besides, what happened to Gunn would probably add support to the franchise. And bottom line, this is Disney. Their bank balance is all they care about.

Makes me wonder if Disney planned to hire him back for a long time, but were just waiting for the whole Twitter drama to die down.

This is literally like winning a argument with your parents and they give you everything back that they took.

So they really just ended up wasting a bunch of time... Hopefully they can get into production sooner rather than later.

Not until after he finishes Suicide Squad. This was a literal last ditch effort from them when nobody would direct it. Otherwise they would never let him take prior commitments...

The article basically says as much (that the decision was made months ago)

So much for all the people telling us to "let it go" and accept he wasn't coming back.

I was expecting either this, or GotG3 to get cancelled altogether. No director wanted to be "that guy" who took JG's job after that kind of controversy.

I was only expecting the latter.

Disney actually swallowing their pride was an unprecedented move.

Definitely. This would've been a huge black mark on the MCU's record. GotG and its sequel are some of the few MCU movies that most people love, even if they normally avoid superhero movies like the plague. Plus, it's one of the few movie series that has a director who intends to see it all the way through and has a solid vision for the entire picture. Not letting Gunn finish the 3rd movie is like making a track-runner faceplant before hitting the finish line when everyone was rooting for them.

Whoever found a real Infinity Gauntlet and made this happen with a snap of their finger is a bigger hero than Captain Marvel.

When literally nobody wants the job and you impulsively fired the guy who was supposed to be instrumental in your Post-End Game films.

Disney thought James Gunn was merely the hired help and when nobody would answer their call they had no choice. I don't believe for a second that this was their plan with how angrily Alan Horn shot them down that he wasn't coming back. If this was in the cards nobody would have given statements and nobody would have been pushing for his reinstatement like Kevin Feige was...
