'Walt Disney Studios is now not planning on rehiring the filmmaker who it recently fired after a series of offensive tweets surfaced, according to multiple people familiar with the studio's current thinking, ' states Variety.
It should be noted that Gunn was far from an A-list director when he was hired in 2012, having only helmed cult films like Slither and Super, yet managed to bring the first two Guardians movies to $1.6 billion in worldwide box office.
To his credit, James Gunn re-apologized (but failed to delete) the disturbing tweets, which made light of rape and pedophilia, but Variety's latest scoop is pretty damning, and states that the general feeling within Disney and Marvel Studios is that both parties have severed ties with Gunn once and for all.

"Those tweets were so frightful and Disney has a different standard than other studios".
