Speaking to Variety, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’s Kurt Russell defended James Gunn, who was recently fired from the franchise over some offensive tweets.
Here’s The Character ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Directors Want To Give Immortality
With all the support for Gunn, it’s hard to imagine just who at Disney is still refusing to allow him to rejoin the progress. Just where is the outrage that they are fearing? Surely, the director’s comments were offensive but they were very old. The entire Guardians cast has, at this point, come to stand by Gunn. So, it should come as no surprise that Russell, who played Ego in the Guardians sequel, feels similarly regarding the director’s firing:
“It’s sad. But it’s a part of our fabric now and I get it. But I do think we’re getting a little too sensitive on maybe some of the wrong people… You have to realize that when you are in that world as a comedian, a writer, whatever you’re always stretching the boundaries and trying to find something which lead him to something that the world loves, which is Guardians of the Galaxy. He has a wonderful heart and a wonderful mind. I hope he is forgiven.”

So, what do you think? Do you agree with Russell? Should Gunn be rehired for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3? Let us know down in the comments!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is now available on home video. The film stars Chris Pratt as Peter Quill (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha, and Kurt Russell as Ego. Many of these same characters are set to appear in Avengers: Infinity War, its sequel, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
20 Marvel Movies That Could Be Made After Disney’s Fox Acquisition

So the impossible has happened: Fox and Disney have recently agreed to a major deal, one which means that — aside from a few limitations with the Hulk and Spider-Man, who have their rights wrapped up with Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures — every major Marvel property will soon be able to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the plans for the remainder of Phase 3 likely won’t change that much, barring possible post-credits scenes showing major cameos being added on short notice, this development certainly gives Marvel an embarrassment of riches to work with for future film adaptations.
Since Marvel Studios had previously claimed that they have an outline for the next 20 movies they’ll make without the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, or any of their associated characters, I thought it would be best to similarly go all-out and suggest 20 more for the heck of it.
Here are, in no particular order, 20 movies that Marvel should think about making with a complete MCU at their fingertips. Click Next to get started!
