Marvel Cinematic Universe can be a well-oiled machine for the most part, but it’s not without single controversy. During phase three, everything continued without hitch, until Guardians of the Galaxy director / writer James Gunn was suddenly fired by Disney. This decision was made when Gunn’s offensive tweets resurrected, which led to Marvel sharing it probably with his most visionary director.
Since then, the future of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise has been unclear, as it is almost unchangeable to think that the group works without Gunn’s voice and perspective. Guardians 3 has been delayed indefinitely, and the cast has expressed its support for its director. Karen Gillan (aka Nebula) recently talked about the franchise, and seems to hope that the trequelle will happen eventually, saying:
Per Karen Gillan’s latest look at Shoot This Now podcasts that even Nebula does not know what happens to Marvel Studios. The situation with James Gunn is a new territory for the franchise, and it has become particularly complicated due to specific directors and franchises.
Considering how long MCU has released movies, board members have been replaced a lot of times. Franchises such as Captain America Iron Man and Thor have resigned relatively easily without any significant interruptions in the overall story. But most properties are not Galaxy’s Guardian .
The Scrappy ensemble project made serious money when it was debuted back in 2014 and introduced a lesser known group of Marvel characters to a wide audience. James Gunn set his perspective, sense of humor, taste music, and even his dance moved into both films in the franchise – a method that served as gangbusters.
As soon as James Gunn was suddenly fired by Disney, it seemed like Guardians franchise may be dead. How can it work without Gunn? The director has also recently completed his first draft of Guardians 3 s script, and it is unclear whether it will be used to develop trequels. Actor Dave Bautista has claimed he would leave his role if Gunn’s draft was not used, so there are lots of balls in the air for the favorite fighter.
The Guardian of the Galaxy including the Nebula, will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe when Avengers 4 will come to theaters on May 3, 2019. Meanwhile, you can check out our 2019 publisher list to plan your Travel to the movies again year.
