Disney has put a hold on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 until it finds a new director to replace James Gunn and well, the fans don’t really seem to be too happy about it.
A new report states that the third installation of the Guardians of the Galaxy has been paused by the studio following the firing of James Gunn from the project in June. Gunn, as we all know, was fired from the project as his decade-old tweets on paedophilia and rape surfaced on the internet again. The tweets were initially unearthed by right-wing media Person Mike Cernovich. The film was earlier scheduled to go in its production stage next year while it was scheduled to release in 2020. However, the process seems to be delayed now as the studio is still looking for a new director.
As the news of the film’s delayed release hit the internet, fans also took to social media to express their opinions on the issue. Check out their reactions below:
So, even without the James Gunn controversial firing plaguing the Guardians 3 news, I'm honestly kind of happy it's being stalled. In my opinion, GotG 2 was a mess, didn't quite capture the magic of the first and was one of the worst paced movies I've seen from Marvel.

This whole Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 debacle is just ridiculous, just rehire James Gunn.
It's not as if he is an actual pedophile. He told a bunch of stupid jokes about pedophilia when he was younger and has since apologized for them.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 can stay on hold in all honesty. We don’t need a third film. The story finished nicely with 2. Leave it at that. If anything 3 should be with a whole new group.

idea for Guardians of the Galaxy 3: fired all the original cast and make chris hemsworth playing every single role

Hey uh, @Disney? Yeah, I got two suggestions on how you could save the Guardians of the Galaxy:
2) If that fails, make Thor 4 and add the Guardians to it. Problem solved.

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 3 being put on hold in the wake of James Gunn being fired is more like common sense thinking. Not really surprising news.

The Guardians of the Galaxy box office, to Disney, is those pennies you find down the sides of your couch
