It was HUGE news and something that came seemingly out of nowhere when Disney let go of writer/director James Gunn from his tenure as head of the Guardians of the Galaxy series. It was over jokes, made in poor taste, that he wrote on social media years ago, jokes he had publicly spoken about before and apologised for, but that came back to haunt him as the internet hit squad of social justice warriors put pressure on Disney as a whole to do something. We know how Dave Bautista felt about the sacking, but what of the others?
In an open letter, signed by the principal returning cast, all the big names put their heads together to make a statement about the issue. It reads in full support of the out of favour Gunn and you can see the letter in it's entirety below:
What do you think about the letter? Do you agree with the overall tone and intention behind it? Would you like to see James Gunn return to the franchise in the future and do you think he would after such a public letting go? Comment below or tweet us @ghoulishent.
