    There are already discussions on this going on in both the "Guardians 3 delayed" thread and the "Marvel Cinematic Universe spoiler" thread.

    @Turtletrekker Sorry, didn't see the first thread you mentioned and thought the subject was off-topic for the other.

    This is good news. The guy never should have been fired to begin with.

    If you mean Left Wingers, then of course-- all ideologues are hypocrites.

    I predicted this months ago, do I get an adorable prize in the mail? Jimmy Pistol to direct! They had to make a kerfluffle over some sponsor pulling out but now there's a change of heart because the money isn't being backed up to the place in a dump truck so.... get him working.

    From one of the articles I read, it sounds like this has been in the works for months. So they probably started talks not to long after he was fired.

    The moron who worked to get Gunn fired to begin with is foaming at the mouth. He and O'Keefe can go off together somewhere to share a deep drink of their irrelevance. ;)

    It’s always a joy when a right-wing troll realizes they have no power and lose in their attempt to hurt people.

    Maybe he never left in the first place. Did he get the same pay, a raise or cut?

    It just seems like empty buzz without a story, like we haven't had any of those.

    He left or they’d be in production now. Money was lost.

    So what's your opinion on Gunn's tweets? Are they not in and of themselves hurtful? If you didn't know his ideological affiliation, would you be celebrating?

    He shouldn't have made them. But he has long since apologized because he actually learned it was wrong and has changed. That's the difference, not that you care. When he learned he was wrong he did change. He didn't blame someone else and refuse to change or make some fake apology. He did the right thing, then years later people who were far worse tried to use it against them purely because Gunn was speaking out against bigotry and as bigots they didn't like that. So yes I'm celebrating because the bigots lost, the people who don't should really reevaluate why they're siding with bigots. Especially ones with a history of defending their own offensive comments.

    It's creepy that his mind went there. Whitewashing it is very selective.

    Whitewashing would be denying it happened or putting a minimizing spin on it. No one's doing that.
