No one is more deserving of a second chance than James Gunn, who shouldn’t even have been fired from his job because alt-right trolls shouldn’t be getting anyone fired, dammit.
Earlier this year, Gunn was sacked by Disney after a series of controversial tweets allegedly written in the past by Gunn, surfaced online.
Gunn is a proven commodity. He took the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise into the nether reaches and actually made films worth watching. They aren’t exactly my thing, but the heart and soul of these movies resides in the right place, and a weirdo like Gunn being given a second chance is a good thing. Yes, he said horrible things. He has paid the price for that and he deserves a shot.
From a business perspective, hiring him to make a Suicide Squad movie is a brilliant way to check the unstoppable growth of Marvel Inc.
