    Looks like there’s abit of a stand off going on between Marvel Studios and Disney.

    Kevin Feige is trying to convince Disney to bring James Gunn back in the mix... he probably has some clout... he’s made them over 17 Billion over the last 10 years.

    As I said early... don’t be surprised if they bring him back.. Disney probably did what they did to make sure the Fox vote goes smoothly...

    They got rid of him to protect their corporate image, nothing more, nothing less. They stated that explicitly when they said his actions were indefensible, inexcusable and inconsistent with their values which are based in making films for kids. Good luck backflipping on that.

    And they won't bring him back because they don't need to. There's no shortage of people who will be willing to work for the biggest movie franchise there is right now. They'll replace him with a female director and suddenly all of the calls for James Gunn to be rehired will be coming from "misogynistic Marvelbros."

    I’m sure there are quite a few odd origins for comic book heroes and villains out there.
