James was sacked from the Marvel superhero flick on Friday after his controversial tweets were resurfaced by conservative pundits and the website Daily Caller. He was also pulled from his San Diego Comic-Con appearance that same day.
Considering what Disney has tolerated in some of their stars and directors over the years, it wasn't always certain that Gunn would be fired, but the manner of his dismissal made it a little more likely.
Gunn tweeted a five-part apology on July 19, and a statement was given to ABC News on July 20 in which the director took responsibility for his actions and said he understood the business decision made by Disney.

The old tweets, which James Gunn apologized for in 2012, were dug up by conservative bloggers who disagree with the filmmaker's political views, which he is very outspoken about on social media. "This man is one of the good ones". She wrote: "I'm pausing myself to take everything in before I speak out of term".
Dave Bautista was also questioned about James Gunn apparently having a friendship with with someone who was found guilty of child porn possession, but the Drax actor replies he doesn't know about that and says at one time he met the now ex-spokesperson for Subway, Jared Fogle, who has been imrpisoned for possessing child pornography and traveling to pay for sex with minors, while doing a WWE show. He's gentle and kind and care deeply for people and animals. I know she in no way WANTED to have to come forward with this story, but she still did it. "Im NOT ok with what's happening to him".
As of right now, Marvel Studios has yet to make a statement about James Gunn and replacing him on Gaurdians of the Galaxy 3 as the movie is said to start filming at the start of the year for its 2020 release date.
