Following Disney Firing, Rival Studios Are Eager to Hire James Gunn

Warner Bros James Gunn Disney

Bautista, who plays the blue-skinned intergalactic ex-criminal Drax the Destroyer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has revealed his intention to quit Guardians Vol. 3 if Walt Disney Studios (the parent company of Marvel Studios) opts to not use the script Gunn had been working on before he was sacked from the film in late July.

The "cybernazis" Bautista refers to include alt-right media personality Mike Cernovich, who dug up Gunn's tweets with the goal of getting him fired, which is a pattern with this guy. Disney looks to be sticking with its decision to remove Gunn as his offensive tweets do not fit with the studio's image.

What's more, THR reports that Gunn could still wind up working on a Marvel film - even if it's writing and directing a different property, according to the trade. "Major players said to be interested in Gunn's services run the gamut between studios, including Warner Bros., which has its rival superhero movies via DC Entertainment, and high-profile and Oscar-winning producers". He didn't have a "pay-or-play" deal, which means the filmmaker gets paid whether the movie gets made with him/her or not. There's reportedly still a chance Disney could offer Gunn another spot at Marvel in an attempt to keep him from going over to the competition.

All non-American workers are vetted and employed by the State Department before being assigned work by different agencies. As a result, the duties are limited to translation, interpretation, cultural guidance and administrative support.

Back in July, Walt Disney Studios dismissed Gunn from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 due to Gunn's past controversial tweets.

Do you think Disney should toss out James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 script? The third Guardians film was meant to be the final outing for the original team lineup, and set up future films in the cosmic arena of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Is it because of Gunn's complicated exit negotiations? If Sony or Warner Bros. or Paramount has a shot at being in business with the guy who just delivered two $750M+ blockbusters, they're probably gonna put up with some bad-faith whining to make that happen. "An end-all verdict hasn't been issued and conversations with Marvel are still ongoing", a source told THR. But one thing's for certain: Gunn won't be out of work long.
