The Guardians of the Galaxy 3 : Dave Bautista / Drax reacts to the return of director James Gunn
Dave Bautista (Drax the destroyer) was shown to be particularly virulent towards Disney when James Gunn was fired by the shooting of the third installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy. It is more moderate for his return but does not hide his satisfaction. Marvel Studios 2017 flashback : July 2018, Disney announced that James Gunn would not carry out the third installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy. The reason for this ? Tweets polemics posted between 2008 and 2011. At the time, not basking in the global success of its Guardians, the director, is very active on Twitter, did not hesitate to employ a sense of humour… well personal, daring to address such difficult subjects as rape and pedophilia. And as nothing really vanishes on the Internets, those famous tweets came out and a bad buzz as a result of being born. To try to calm the game, Disney has ruled : James Gunn will not The Guardians of the Galaxy 3 , for incompatibility with the spirit and values of the studio.
Of course, all the casting is mounted in the niche, issuing a letter asking Disney to reconsider their decision. The big famous family in hollywood. Of all, this is Dave Bautista, who has shown the most committed and virulent against Disney, not hesitating to threaten the studio to boycott if the scenario of Gunn was not used.
Since then, everything back in order. James Gunn is recalled by Disney after having achieved the result of Suicide Squad. We imagine that among the firm’s big ears, the departure to the competition should not be seen a good eye. And like on the Internets, if nothing really vanishes, the memory is somewhat short, this reminder is in the right mood.
A good mood that does not hide, Dave Bautista , although his joy is more measured than his anger. What he says on the mic with Fandango at Comic Con in Las Vegas : He put his job on the line, and @DaveBautista is STOKED to have @JamesGunn back to steer the ship of Guardians of the Galaxy 3.#CinemaCon pic.twitter.com/wGcCxd9b88 — Fandango (@Fandango) April 3, 2019
I am speechless, unable to respond for some reason, the day I learned that James Gunn was again committed. I will soon have the opportunity to celebrate it publicly, not to make the lesson to some, but you know how much the decision of Disney to me has pissed off and how much I fought for it to be reinstated. So you can imagine how I am happy of his return.
