I survived Thanos but unfortunately the guy who was driving the car I was in at the time didn't so I died anyway. Bummer!

Hollywood's morality is unshakable.... unless it threatens their profitability. Then it's optional.

Isn't that true pretty much anywhere?

http://comicbook.com/marvel/2018/08/09/marvel-disney-james-gunn-guardians-of-the-galaxy-3-rehired/

Despite the address-title, he hasn't been rehired yet. It's more of an unsubtantiated rumor that they're trying to rehire him secretly.

Quote
"Nobody is talking about it, but sources said that back channel conversations are taking place between Marvel Studios and Disney," Deadline reports. "Sources said the Marvel contingent is trying to persuade Disney to explore a compromise that might bring Gunn back into the fold for Guardians 3, something that clearly would be best for the franchise. There is no clash or strong arming here."

It's too bad, because I bet myself a Coke they'll eventually rehire him, and so I don't get a Coke yet.  ::)

(I'm good either way, rehire or not. Some of those many, many spicy tweets went beyond being spicy. But he seems to have matured into his opportunity, so to speak, and the cast support lends some weight toward that, too.)
