Thread Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MMMe1drnZY

>EXCLUSIVE: Redemption and second chances have long been superhero movie staples, and today it looks like life has imitated art. 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.

>The decision to rehire Gunn –he was fired last July by Disney after alt-right journalists made public a fusillade of decade old social media missives that made light of pedophilia and rape — was one that was mulled and actually made months ago, following conversations with Disney studio leadership and the team at Marvel Studios. Why the change of heart? After the firing, Walt Disney Studios president Alan Horn met with Gunn on multiple occasions to discuss the situation. Persuaded by Gunn’s public apology and his handling of the situation after, Horn decided to reverse course and reinstate Gunn.
>>
>The social media messages were indefensible, but the filmmaker never did anything but blame himself for poor judgment displayed at a time when he was emerging from the Troma film factory and attempting to be a provocateur. There were no reports that Gunn ever engaged in the behavior he lampooned. Unlike the defensive posture exhibited by Kevin Hart that led him to skip hosting the Oscars, Gunn fell on his sword early and often and never lashed out at Disney.

>Ultimately, Gunn’s missives were poorly chosen words and not actions, though Disney’s quick trigger was completely understandable when the social media messages were first reported by outlets like Fox News. Those outlets reported that Gunn’s missives were exposed as payback for Gunn being a vocal critic of President Donald Trump.

>Gunn’s return to Guardians of the Galaxy 3 got complicated when he signed on to write and direct the Suicide Squad sequel for Warner Bros and DC. Marvel Studios has agreed to commence production on Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after Gunn completes Suicide Squad 2. Making the whole thing easier though was the fact that Marvel Studios never met with or considered any other director for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, despite speculation that Thor: Ragnarok helmer Taika Waititi and Vice helmer Adam McKay were in the mix.


>Marvel Studios has remained mum on all details concerning Guardians of the Galaxy 3, as the Kevin Feige-led division turned its focus toward Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. Marvel this week set Destin Daniel Cretton to direct Shang-Chi.

>Prior to his dismissal, Gunn had written a script which Marvel confirmed would be used for the third Guardians of the Galaxy installment. I expect Gunn to confirm all this as he supports the release of Brightburn, the David Yarovevsky-directed Elizabeth Banks-starrer that he produced and Sony releases May 24.
>>
Hmmmmm interesting

Didn’t think it was possible for forgive anyone for anything these days
>>
>There will be an inevitable chorus of those who will gripe about Gunn’s return, but creatively, Guardians will benefit from his return. The entire cast of the film was outspoken in its desire to have Gunn back, saying that those satiric tweets did not match his personal actions. The cast clearly loves him; Chris Pratt, Zoey Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn, Michael Rooker and Pom Klementieff all pleaded for Gunn’s return, in an open letter. The controversy shattered the camaraderie that the cast had with the filmmaker and put a strongly performing franchise in limbo. Marvel has done a great job allowing its filmmakers to inject their personalities into each franchise, and perhaps none has been as stamped by one filmmaker as Gunn on the Guardians franchise. The first two installments grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide, with the sequel out grossing the first picture.

>Soon after the announcement of Gunn’s firing, fans circulated a petition urging Disney to reconsider. On October 31st, a fan crowdfunded billboard went up in Anaheim, CA to rehire Gunn.

>Disney is days from closing its acquisition of the assets of Fox and while the company will always be family first, it is somehow reassuring that there is room for second chances, and for a good director to have a chance to overcome a colossally stupid mistake.

>UTA and The Safran Company rep Gunn.

Wow, they're desperate.

It's first week has done better than some MCU films' entire runs. That said, reviews are really lackluster, especially in regards to the lead who is currently going to become the new face of the MCU. Even if her film ends up being a huge success, she's currently a big risk in dragging the rest of the MCU down.
>>
>>106446370
More like, they couldn't get anyone to do GOTG justice, and those characters are already beloved moneymakers so they were desperate enough to hire him back

>>106446370
It's doing fine, but Larson wasn't great in it. She didn't display the charisma you'd need to anchor an entire franchise, like this, the way Downey, Evans and Hemsworth (once they let him have fun) could. It's possible the fault was with Larson, with the director, or with the script. But they're shoring up their bets by getting Gunn back. This res-secures the Guardians cast (though it may be shaky) meaning they can rely on them if needed, and they can use Gunn to write and direct Larson if needed as well.
>>
>>106446427
No? Did you miss the part where it says "after he completes Suicide Squad 2"?

>>106447415
If he has the chance to get out of the DC dumpster fire you can bet he's taking it ASAP

>>106446370
>Captain Marvel had its world premiere in London on February 27, 2019, and was theatrically released in the United States on March 8, 2019, in IMAX and 3D. The film has grossed over $566 million worldwide, making it the second highest-grossing film of 2019. Critics described it as "entertaining, enjoyable and savvy" and praised the performances of Larson, Jackson and Mendelsohn.[5]

>>106446370
It did better domestic opening week than Doctor Strange and Spider-Man Homecoming, but I think everyone's waiting to see what kind of legs it has.
>>
>>106446310
Seems to show that going forward people will have to sincerely apologize and change, and not be narcissistic jerks their peers all hate beforehand so their peers (not just their fans) will go to bat for them instead of celebrating their firing.
>>
>>106447553
>what kind of legs it has.
It doesn't need legs when it's already a success. Only people waiting are people with an agenda to push.
>>
>>106446370
It's doing fine but mostly due to the Endgame connection and brand loyalty. The reviewers didn't really buy into her (look at the big gap between the general critics aproval rate, and the top critics at RT), and the character also seems not to have made a big connection with the general audiences. Feige and Disney aren't stupid and they can tell Carol/Brie can't carry the franchise once the main players leave.

TL;DR the movie is doing very well, but it doesn't look strong enough as a cornerstone for the post-Endgame phase.
>>
>>106447593
That's a stupid statement. BvS was "already a success" until it crashed and burn on the second week. That won't happen with CM because even the worst case scenarios would give it better legs than BvS (even SS had better legs), but if Snyder's DCEU movies have prove anything is that big opening weekends mean jack shit.

>>106447849
That's high level for critics.
>>
>>106447849
That’s what I think they are going to do. Soft-reboot the character to be more likeable/relatable while surrounding her with other likeable characters. It will just take a competent director/writer (and ideally bred spending 5 days a week in the gym)
>>

Damn. Anyone who hates Marvel has been absolutely devastated. This week has been devastating for Marvel haters.
>>
>>106447917
She just needs to be more likeable herself. Her supporting cast, Fury, Maria and Monica, Talos, and Yon-Rogg were all good.
>>
>>106447849
I'm sure they're gonna try to "fix" her but having a proven hit maker like Gunn gives them a bit of a safety net in case they can't make it work. They'll probably want him to take the place of the Russos in directing the big team movies.

Because the Marvel franchise, especially now that they are about to get the X-Men and F4, is the direct opposite of what one could consider "desperate". Did you just not see this entire week?
>>
>>106448888
The argument is that you all are desperately clinging to the idea that CM was somehow a failure even though all facts point to that being false and that you trying to bring that delusion up as being at all related to this specific situation is asinine.

If there was a speck of truth to that, Disney's blood hounds as well as the internet would have found it and nailed him on a cross.

>>106450811
You dumbass, it's way more simple than that. They never really wanted to fire Gunn, they just didn't want anything that could potentially muck up the Fox merger. Now that Alan Horn's contract is out and the merger's more or less done, they can bring him back and look at that, the internet rejoices.
>>
>>106446370
It did well, but not well enough considering all the factors it had in it's favor. Brie doesn't radiate charisma like Robert did, and none of the other actors who are going to be left after Endgame do either. They're losing the main faces of the brand and they need ones who can hold momentum .

The only one who can probably is Black Panther, but that's too big a risk. So Gunn was likely kept in limbo until Marvel felt that the costs outweighed the loss of face for having to do a runback. So they bring Gunn back. Now because they fucked things up, GoTG3 probably won't be till 2022 at the earliest, but this also gives time to observe how well the other franchises are doing and by then it'd be ideal for pumping a shot of adrenaline into the brand if none of the other current face 4 characters can, AND it can drum up interest back for the MCU around the time the X-men and FF are gonna be fully integrated.

It's not crazy. Her movie did well, but reviews almost unanimously list her as a charisma black hole, which on movies that rely on star power is very bad when you're about to lose several faces of your franchise, and none of the ones you have left have the same level of pull.

Faced with that, what do you do? Do you gamble on hoping someone will rise up or do you hedge your bets for safety sake?

No, but he would certainly want a DC movie as well under his belt. Deal was also most likely more of an ultimatum, which he took advantage of.

We should judge him by what he does in public and not by what happens in his bedroom. Hes a good director, everyone loves him and thats all we should care about.
>>
>>106451182
I don't think this is an immediate reaction to the critics, as they have been in talks for a long time.
It may be about the execs seeing the in-house preview of the raw cut, prompting them to not bet everything on Captain Marvel because they are human beings and have eyes.
So they pulled every trick in the book to make CM do gangbusters at the box office while also getting Gunn back and probably planning several other movies without Brie Larson.

It made money, but it's also been made obviously clear it made money solely through its circumstances, not through its own efforts. Its not like Black Panther where people saw it through good WoM.

At current she's just a risk in ruining Endgame by being a final insert. At best however, she has a chance to be "Thor'd" where the first film(s) are lackluster and she'd find her legs in either the sequel or with a crossover with Thor. Everyone loves Thor after Ragnarok, despite mixed reception for the tone. Hell even before that, people thought the GOTG will just be rebranded to Asgardians of the Galaxy after the Gunn firing.

For Sony, Spider-Verse's budget was more of for a long term franchise, albeit a risky one. They were banking on Spiderverse's word of mouth and praise from the animation community besides the titular characters so they can make a universe out of it. Basically their answer to "The Lego Movie" and your usual Disney/Pixar films after the disaster that was Emoji movie.

Quads confirm. Captain Marvel is fucking tripe. I'll challenge anyone else that has seen this movie to convince me otherwise. Here is my opening statement.

WATCH MORE MOVIES

All you carolfags are fucking little spoiled princesses trying to pretend it isn't anything but. The movie was so legit cringe with all the 90's pandering, girl power garbage, and afternoon school writing. It was insulting to my intelligence on a cinematic experience attached to this MCU. Hearing the faggots in a semi-seated theater chuckle at the most stereotypical predictable gag. It was like clockwork I felt embarrassed paying money to see this.

Let's get into the static cinemaphotography. Fucking static, and lazy as shit. I had to force myself to stay awake. This hasn't happened since The Force Unleashed. The fucking acting coming from Brei Larson was flat and lifeless. If that was their aim to have a generic no-nonsense cunt; they succeded as I did not care about her at all. Let us also talk about the weak supporting cast. The little girl, bless her heart, cannot act for shit. Maybe the acting coach did not have the balls to tell her otherwise. Probably not as bad as the kid who played Anikin from The Phantom Menace. I could go on, but its fucking hurts. I haven't been this disappointed since TLJ.

Lucky for me I had stubs discount so it only cost about 5 bucks. It is by no means a trash fire, but its an awful disservice in terms of an empowering capeshit movie with a future lead to inherit the MCU. Disney fucked up with this mess.
>>
>>106452869
You know I wouldn't call any comic book movie good film making, or at least any produced in the last 5-10 years. They're just cheap entertainment churned out on a conveyor belt at this point, and Captain Marvel is probably the lower end of the MCU.

Disney should really think about post Endgame
>>
>>106452935
I probably wouldn't care as much if fucking feminists did not make it out to be some be all end all movie.
>>
>>106452860
Predictably, it would probably see a good sequel spinoff like Lego Batman before it gets its "Ninjago". Ironically it's probably improbable for Spider-Verse to spawn its Lego Batman (Noir Spider-Man) since it's been announced that the sequel will be Miles/Gwen with a few Porker shorts.
>>
>>106452987
They did the same thing with Wonder Woman. But in reality, it's just studios drumming up media attention and free buzz. But hey have fun pointing out to stupid people that praising Carol is essentially shitting on Black Widow and Wanda like their nothing.
>>
>>106452869
>Cape movies aren't as good as other films
Shocker. Though I will say that the first two Raimi Spider-Man movies had more soul than post Iron-Man 1. Point is, people are starting to catch on after the filler that was Ant-Man 2, which I'm sure people only watched for Paul Rudd and Infinity War and not on its own merits.

This man is UNSTOPPABLE!!! Glad he's back.

I don't see how they could make another Spider-verse movie with anything besides miles

>Disney should really think about post Endgame
They did. It's called X-Men and the F4. Also Doc Strange 2, BP2, Shang-Chi, Eternals and probably some other shit
>>
>>106453020
At least Wonder Woman's wasn't nearly as bad as say Ghostbusters or Brie's mouth. WW was actually closer to Black Panther where only minor shit sitrred up but neither actually did a GB where they say "only haters/racists/sexists/magas won't watch it".

Self contradictory sentence. The Spider-Verse is vast and they could easily pick one out of the wikia and do a kid-friendly adaptation out of it. Sadly, you're right in a meta sense that they're more prone to pushing the two teens that's more likely to resonate with the target audience than SP//DR, Spider-Man Noir or 2099.

It makes me wonder how well Captain Marvel would have done if the movie came out a year or two ago instead of being before Endgame.

DISNEY IS DESPERATE
MCU IS DYING

All I know is I'm dead tired of Marvel capeshit. Disney ruined capseshit with having to have everything attached to a connected universe. I'm not seeing any other Marvel flick until Endgame, and I'm done. I would not even bother, but need to know how it ends. How did something so fun get dragged out for so long to feel so underwhelming in the endgame? I can't even discuss any other capeshit movie without fucking fanbois blinding cumming at the logos of their favorite companies in defense.

GotG is probably the only other Marvel movies besides the first 2 Ironman, and Captain America movies I actually enjoyed. Everything else was just meh for me.

Because it's the equivalent of a tv series with months instead of a week to wait for the next "episode". Sorta a different expectation from the Raimi/Nolan years when people just expected trilogies from origin movies. Now people just expect origin movies that tie into Avengers.

I've kinda fallen out of love of the MCU a whiles back now but god damn the absolute madman did it.

I'll make sure that GotG 3 will be the first MCU film I've seen in years since, well, GotG 1 now that I think about it.

Yeah dude I don't even know where you're going with this
CM had a production budget of ~175m, and made >550m international in week 1.
The movie might be hot garbage but you'd have to be on some universe brain shit to think it's not financially successful

I think he's only returning because GotG is a passion project for him and a lot of people want him to go back. Also it's a big FU to those who wanted him gone and to the Mouse (to an extend because he's going to make the Mouse some money).

And he's also making them wait until he finishes his Suicide Squad movie so he's coming back in his own terms too.

After that then yeah who knows, but him coming back definitely made a lot of people butthurt.

They didn't do this because they saw the error of their ways or any bullshit like that. They ran the numbers and followed the money.

I understand that, but I don't blame these people for what happened. All of this online outrage crap, whether it's the right or the left, is all mostly a game to them, and corporations like Disney enable them. They both sell puritanism in mildly different flavors, and I wish creatives would stand up and say "fuck this noise" instead of picking sides and keep feeding the internet hate machine.

It does seem a bit like a doublestandard now that you mention it.

But when you remember that it isn't about the apology, it's about the money, it makes sense.
>>
>>106457960
I doubt his actions did anything, mouse knows public forgets things fast, re-hiring Gunn was probably part of the plan from the moment he was fired.

Probably not but he stood by his friend and I can respect him for that.
