Warner Bros. Reportedly Interested In James Gunn After Disney Firing

James Gunn may be considered "indefensible" by Disney, which indeed refused to consider any reason he was targeted before firing him from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on July 20.

While it has been reported that Disney will never rehire James Gunn ever again, now it's said various movie studios and top producers would work with the director.

Multiple sources told the news outlet Gunn is stuck in "complicated negotiations with Disney over his exit settlement", and that Disney's plans to use his script is playing a role in that. One of the major studios includes Warner Bros., which has poached filmmakers from Marvel before to help shepherd its struggling DC Extended Universe. That is a huge vote of confidence, however it is not entirely surprising since most in the industry who know Gunn have come to his defense, unlike the studio he helmed a billion dollar-grossing franchise for.

Do you think Disney should toss out James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 script?
