Filmmaker James Gunn has broken his silence on being fired and rehired by Disney to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. Gunn had already turned in a screenplay when old offensive tweets of his were unearthed, allegedly by right wing elements whom he was antagonistic against, and he was immediately relieved of his duties.

Gunn told Deadline ‘a part of that day was the worst of my life, and a part of it was the greatest day of my life’. Gunn was fired in July, following which he received massive fan support. The Guardians cast members – Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel and particularly Dave Bautista – had been vocal in their disapproval of his firing.
