Movie Director James Gunn returns to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3!

Great news movie lovers! Remember the old news that Disney and Marvel was going to keep James Gunn’s script for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy 3 movie? Take that news and upgrade it because it’s been confirmed by movie news site Deadline and IGN, that Guardians of the Glaxy director James Gunn will be back and direct the new Marvel movie. In addition, this means that he will be in charge of two superhero movies each from a different franchise. It’s already been announced that not only he will be involved with GotG 3, but he is already planning to do the second Suicide Squad from DC and Warner Bros. According to Deadline, Walt Disney Studios Chairman was persuaded after seeing James Gunn public apology for the controversial tweets.

What is your thoughts?

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 movie will use Gunn’s script

Good news for Guardians of the Galaxy fans! According to IGN, the “halted” movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will indeed be using James Gunn’s script. In a interview with Star Lord actor Chris Pratt with MTV, Pratt commented that they plan to do the movie according to James Gunn. He also mentioned that he still cares about him and he believes it’s important for the team to stick together like the Guardians and get the job done.

However, it’s still unknown to who will direct the movie.

If you don’t know why Disney fired James Gunn, Disney found James Gun’s tweets and deemed them inappropriate due to not being civil and polite. In results, Disney fired James Gunn and this caused the movie to be put on pause on production. James Gunn is currently working with Warner Bros and plans to do a Suicide Squad movie in 2021.

Remember the post I wrote about how DC and Warner Bros was going to make a Batman Beyond movie to compete against Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse? Well, I got bad news for you. It’s not happening.

Found in IGN, film reporter Umberto Gonzalez who works with The Wrap sent out a tweet that the Batman Beyond animated movie is not in development. In his tweet, he mentions that DC and Warner Bros commented that any rumors about a possible Batman Beyond movie was false.

All hopes for a Batman Beyond movie is dead.
