Deadline journalist Mike Fleming Jr wrote: "I've learned that Disney has reinstated James Gunn as the writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and I've confirmed it with Marvel and Gunn's camp". Disney Chairman Alan Horn at the time said Gunn's words were inconsistent with the studio's values.
The director, who was taken off of the project after being fired for offensive old tweets past year, was brought back onto the project months ago, according to Deadline on Friday (March 15). He will then move onto Guardians once he completes work on the DC supervillain team-up.
Now, according to Deadline, Gunn will begin production on Guardians 3 once he concludes work on Suicide Squad 2. It does seem likely that Gunn would direct "Suicide Squad 2" first, however.
Gunn was sacked by the Mouse House last summer after a series of controversial old tweets from the filmmaker surfaced.

Disney doesn't appear to have shared anything by way of a full, public explanation for the surprise reversal at the time of this writing, but it's safe to say the cast members who rushed to Gunn's defense - some of whom even threatened to not take part in the next movie at all - may have played a part.
"My words of almost a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative", Gunn said at the time. According to Deadline, Gunn attended several meetings with Walt Disney Studios President Alan Horn, and eventually Disney chose to shift course.
James Gunn is getting a second chance. Early on after Gunn's dismissal, it was confirmed the studio planned to utilize Gunn's script - which had been turned in prior to his firing. I deeply appreciate Disney's decision and I am excited to continue making films that investigate the ties of love that bind us all. "My days saying something just because it's shocking and trying to get a reaction are over". The horror film he produced, Brightburn, releases on May 24.
The first two Guardians films, which follow a misfit bunch of space adventurers, have grossed over $1.6 billion globally.
