Regardless of pressure from the cast of Guardians Of The Galaxy and a petition to reinstate James Gunn as director for Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 3, Disney will not be rehiring James Gunn.
Variety is reporting that James Gunn recently met with Disney Studios chairman, Alan Horn, and that Horn conveyed to Gunn that the decision made by Disney was final.
Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige, although a proponent for giving Gunn a second chance, is said to stand by the decision made by Disney to not rehire Gunn.
Disney and Marvel will now move forward with Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 3 and search for a new director to helm the film.
