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.
