Another day, another ride on the James Gunn roller coaster!
This is actually something I talked about on YouTube last night. It sounds like Marvel Studios is working behind the scenes with Disney to try to find a compromise in regards to the Gunn situation.
Now Deadline confirms they are trying to work on a something:
“Nobody is talking about it, but sources said that back channel conversations are taking place between Marvel Studios and Disney. Sources said the Marvel contingent is trying to persuade Disney to explore a compromise that might bring Gunn back into the fold for Guardians 3, something that clearly would be best for the franchise. There is no clash or strong arming here. I’m told it’s a discussion that comes in the wake of the whole cast declaring their loyalty to Gunn, whose abrupt exit has put a thriving film franchise in a rocky place. One would have to label this 11th hour approach to be a long shot, but the community is talking about it.”
The rumor going around is that Feige is trying to at least salvage James Gunn’s script if they won’t let him come back completely.
