JAMES GUNN REHIRED FOR GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.3
After his firing last year due to poor-tasting, near-decade-old jokes in the form of tweets, Disney have brought him back to finish what he started.
Apparently, Disney and Gunn have been in talks for his return for a while, which begs one to think; how legitimate was his firing? To be fair, I never read anywhere that they weren’t thinking about bringing him back.
I think the best way to look at it is this: Disney do not tolerate those types provocative tweets, so they did the right thing by showing to the world that there are consequences. However, these tweets were way far in the past, and regardless of your style/sense of humour, they were indeed jokes. Yes, terrible jokes nonetheless, I’m not defending them.
This whole ordeal has essentially been “James, what you did was bad. Go sit on the naughty step for a while to prove to everyone as well as yourself that we don’t tolerate that sort of stuff. That being said, we recognise it’s in the past now and we see your are not only willing to behave now, but you have been doing so for nearly a decade”.
That’s how I see it anyways. Personally I’m glad he’s been given a chance to finish this signature trilogy – it just wouldn’t have been the same without him I don’t think. I’m sure the cast will be happy about this, and I’m certain they will all knock it out the park to ensure, us, the fans, have a great experience!
Here are some of my favourite shots from the trailer (which I’d be more inclined to call a teaser to be honest!)
Marvel are still clearly holding as much as possible close to their chests. Hype aside, all we see is a few long shots of scenery and only a handful of characters. I was hoping for some epic shots, but it was seemingly going for a more sombre tone, which is cool don’t get me wrong.
Most noticable features include Hawkeye, now donning the Ronin outfit after what most of us presume to be the loss of his family. Stark is straight up stranded in space with I guess Nebula, unless she bounces and leaves him for dead before the footage we see in the trailer, because there is a shot of her inside of the ship. We also see Thanos sort of limping, with the damaged gauntlet still singed to his arm (like I said would be the case – go me!) The snap certainly took a toll on him.
I’m assuming the next trailer will be where it’s at, in terms of story and epic shots. All I can say for now is… I want more, I need more! Most importantly, I’d put all my chips on “Endgame” being the title and it was!
What did you guys think? Let me know! For now, go watch the trailer again here:
