With the chaos surrounding director James Gunn and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 there have, of course, been many wild theories offered up by the internet. That’s what it does, and no, he’s not returning. Why? Because Disney says so.
It doesn’t matter that the entire cast of the movie series wants everyone to forgive him.
That’s some serious box office mojo in those signatures there.
According to Variety…
At this point, the letter does not seem likely to save his job. Gunn’s firing was approved by Disney Studios chief Alan Horn, with his boss, company CEO Bob Iger weighing in on the final decision. The involvement of the highest levels of Disney signals that the cast pressure to rethink the Gunn ouster will struggle to gain internal support. “I don’t see Disney re-hiring him,” says one person close to the matter. “Those tweets were so horrible and Disney has a different standard than other studios.”
That being said, there are a lot of theories involving Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 that despite being a little “out there” might actually come true.
In fatc, the folks over at Screen Rant actually pulled together 10 of the best and jammed them into one video (and yes, James Gunn still being brought back is one of them).
The theories in questions are: that James Gunn will actually be re-hired to direct the movie, that Drax won’t be in the movie because he’ll be dead, that Mantis will be revealed to be Star-Lord’s sister in the movie, that the current Guardians of the Galaxy will team-up with the old Guardians of the Galaxy in the movie, that the titular team will return to Knowhere to regain Star-Lord’s powers in the movie, that Nova will appear in the movie, that Quasar will appear in the movie, that Moondragon will appear in the movie, that Venom will appear in the movie, and that all the Guardians of the Galaxy will die in the movie.
Wait… Did they say Venom? Whaaaat?
