Disney rehires James Gunn to direct 'Guardians of the Galaxy 3'
James Gunn has received a second chance.
Disney has rehired the filmmaker to write and direct the third installment of the Marvel superhero franchise, "Guardians of the Galaxy."
Gunn went on Twitter to confirm the news, saying he was "tremendously grateful to every person out there who has supported me over the past few months."
"I am always learning and will continue to work at being the best human being I can be," he continued. "I deeply appreciate Disney's decision and I am excited to continue making films that investigate the ties of love that bind us all. I have been, and continue to be incredibly humbled by your love and support. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Love to you all."
Last July, Disney fired Gunn after decade-old tweets resurfaced in which he joked about topics including pedophilia and rape.
At the time, Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said, “The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’ Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values and we have severed our business relationship with him.”
Gunn's old tweets, which were dug up by critics online, included lines like, "I like when little boys touch me in my silly place."
"The best thing about being raped is when you're done being raped and it's like 'when this feels great, not being raped!" another tweet read.
Other now-deleted tweets from 2008-2011 included jokes about the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, AIDS and the holocaust.
Gunn publicly apologized, saying that his "words of nearly a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative."
