In a rare turn, director James Gunn is once again heading up up the third installment of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy series. Gunn, who directed the previous two films, was fired over the summer when offensive tweets dating from between 2008 and 2011 resurfaced after being promoted by right-wing personalities like Jack Posobiec and […]View More James Gunn is back at the helm of Guardians of the Galaxy 3
Things aren’t looking great for Elizabeth Banks in the new trailer for James Gunn’s Brightburn.
The director’s first post-Guardians of the Galaxy film throws back to his older work on sci-fi horror films like Slither, which also starred Banks. An…
Before James Gunn brought into the world his entertaining vision of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy — and was unceremoniously dumped by Disney following a bad faith character assassination — he made horror movies. Good, messed up horror movies like Slither.
In the time since his Disney separation, noisy speculation has been building around Brightburn, a Sony Pictures release that reunites Gunn with Slither star Elizabeth Banks. But what is it? Many have guessed that Brightburn is just a codename, and Gunn has been working on a video game adaptation.
Those people were wrong. The first trailer for Brightburn is here, and it looks like Starman meets Species: creepy outer space kid found and raised by baby-obsessed husband-and-wife but he turns out to be some kind of death-dealing monster. Sign us the hell up. Read more…View More James Gunn’s post-‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ mystery movie is finally revealed
Former Guardians of the Galaxy writer/director James Gunn is becoming part of the DC family, according to multiple reports on Tuesday. And he may not be the only one.

Kurt Russell stepped up to defend James Gunn on Saturday night.
He didn’t go as far as saying “Disney must re-hire James,” but it’s clear that he feels Gunn was fired in error. Disney severed its business relationship with the Guardians of the Galaxy director in July after fringe alt-right interests resurfaced Gunn’s old and admittedly controversial tweets from a decade ago.
Tweets, it should be mentioned, that Gunn himself owned and apologized for a number of years ago.View More Kurt Russell defending ‘Guardians’ director James Gunn is a bigger deal than it seems
“We fully support James Gunn.”
Those five words are the first you read in an open letter to Disney, a letter signed by every starring cast member in Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, and Michael Rooker, plus Gunn’s brother, Sean.
The cast is united in their belief that Disney made a huge mistake in firing Gunn, and they’re now letting the whole world know about it.
“Each of us looks forward to working with our friend James again in the future,” the letter reads. “His story isn’t over — not by a long shot.” Read more…View More Entire ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ cast writes open letter protesting Disney’s firing of James Gunn

As the online debate rages on over Disney’s decision to fire director James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, reactions on the ground at Comic-Con have been no less mixed.
Many of the attendees I spoke with seemed more uncertain than outraged – in either direction.
“I don’t know how to describe it,” said Suzanne Quon, a Mantis cosplayer. However, she continued, she ultimately agreed with Disney’s decision.
“Guardians of the Galaxy is typically a family-friendly movie,” she said. “So I think if they’re trying to continue to pitch to that audience, they have to be aware of what their director has been doing.” Read more…View More At Comic-Con, mixed feelings on James Gunn’s firing from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’

When it comes to cheekily trolling his fan base on Twitter, James Gunn is almost as bad as Mark Hamill.
His latest “glimpse” of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 script is no exception. On Monday, he tweeted the following image:
Let’s be honest — there’s almost certainly nothing in that image that gives any plot point, either tiny or large, away. Read more…View More ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ fans attempt to decipher James Gunn’s latest tweet about ‘Vol. 3’
It’s the moment fans of Star Wars and the Guardians of the Galaxy movies have been waiting for for centuries. Er, well, months. But it’s felt like centuries.
It all started back in February when a fan asked director James Gunn if he could find a role for Star Wars legend Mark Hamill in the third volume of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.
Gunn replied that it should be easy to get together because Hamill was actually his neighbor in Malibu. Read more…View More James Gunn and Mark Hamill finally had the epic coffee date we’ve all been waiting for
If you think you know everything there is to know about Guardians of the Galaxy, you’re wrong.
According to director James Gunn, there’s still a “big Easter egg” in both films which hasn’t been spotted — and there are a whole bunch of smaller Easter eggs that are still unfound in volume two.
Gunn mentioned these as part of a Guardians FAQ Twitter thread he started on Wednesday.
