Leading cast members, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel, called for a reinstatement of James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
Earlier this month, Gunn was removed from the position, after tweets resurfaced from 2008-2011. They joked about topics regarding pedophillia and rape, and were deemed “indefensible” and “inconsistent” with our studio’s values by Walt Disney Studios Chairman.
While the cast members do not support Gunn’s tweets from the past, they emphasize their positive experiences with the director, with Chris Pratt adding, “Although I don’t support James Gunn’s inappropriate jokes from years ago, he is a good man.”
