Until Gunn is fully rehired and compensated, Mike Cernovich is the man who speaks for Disney.

I'm really conflicted about this, because I have no idea whether Gunn's script will bring it closer to the original or not.

The first GotG is one of my favorite movies, ever. I love it more than I probably should, but aesthetically it was almost perfect and hit every beat more or less flawlessly. There are only a couple of places I could point to and say "that could have been better". Like the scene near the beginning where Quill is jumping towards the camera full profile. Needlessly awkward, probably only inserted for 3D shows.

Unfortunately I was disappointed by the sequel. It wasn't all bad, but it lacked the things that made the first GotG amazing. Also the Pac-Man thing was just f*cking stupid. There's a difference between subtle references ("the Milano") and slapping our collective face with your dick.

Meanwhile, despite the controversy ginned-up outrage stirred by a scumbag rapist who makes lots of rape jokes.

Fixt.

Just say you acted too hastily and unfire the guy. The people who want him fired literally do worse things as their main occupation. By the time the movie comes out the only people who will care or remember are some of the worst people imaginable if you just backtrack a bit. It's only a big deal if you don't.

Doing Ego was a gamble because if you've read the Ego comics, they are HEAVY in exposition. They put the "novel" in graphic novel.

And sure enough, the second act has a lot of Kurt Russell explaining stuff, and it kinda sucks the momentum out of the plot. But it was the best they can do with such a long-winded character with ancient origins.

This is the least they can do.  But i want more.  REHIRE HIM.

Also, farkyeah to Bautista.  I love you Bautista.

They don't really have a choice. They can't delay production for months while a new script is put together. Pratt and Saldana have other big budget franchises they have to do sequels for.

Why on Earth would he want to come back? When a bunch of shiatheels dragged his name through the mud, Disney and Marvel turned their backs on him. Now, every other studio in Hollywood is interested in hiring him and Disney still has to pay him for the Guardians 3 script.

He's not coming back.

Note: not coming back without a very significant pay increase and no studio interference.

Crazy.

[counts the zeros on the check from Disney]

You know, maybe it's not that crazy.

I don't get the impression he's an angry "hold a grudge" sort of guy.  Granted, I don't know him personally.  But my guess is he'd happily get back in the chair if they offered an apology and let everyone clear the air.  It's a project he loves, and has had tremendous success specifically because of his vision and his execution.  There's been very little interference, which is uncommon for the Disney-sphere.

In short - it's his baby, it's a massive hit, and Hollywood has a very short memory.  It wouldn't take much to put everything back as it was just a couple of months ago.

Does Ike Perlmutter have a say in this?  Because yesterday's news that he's a frequent visitor to Mar a Lago visiting the Orange Menace to advise on veteran's affairs has me looking at this Gunn thing in a new light.

So people really don't know that he actually likes to fark children? Maybe people on Fark like the same or something. Everyone's all like "Hitler didn't really have anything against the Jews; he was just joking lol. Seriously kill all the Jews. What, you don't have a sense of humor?!?!?!"

Well, duh.  Disney is still corporate media.  Perhaps the mother of all corporate media.  Any flimsy excuse to take the IP / work / effort and not compensate the creator is basically the Holy Grail.  Of course they're going to use the script.  This is the company that perma-Vault-ed Song of the South.  They're not worried about looking like jerks.  They're worried about how to most efficiently filet, dice, and scallop the Golden Goose that is GotG.
