Fired Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has been reinstated by Disney to direct the third film in the hit franchise.

The news that James Gunn has been rehired by Disney for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3 has Marvel fans celebrating like insane right now, as their worst nightmare about the Marvel Cinematic Universe has now been averted. Multiple reports confirm that Gunn is now officially back in the director's chair for this next installment in the comic book franchise - a huge reversal of Disney's decision that sparked a passionate outcry from Guardians cast members.

The fallout from Gunn's rehiring is still rolling over the Internet, but there's already one detail from the initial report on the matter that bears focused discussion: Apparently, Marvel Studios never seriously pursued any other director for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3!

Marvel Studios put the film on hold after social media posts were found where Gunn made light of paedophilia, rape and the 9/11 terror attack.

When Gunn was sacked, he issued a statement apologizing for his controversial tweets. "I am tremendously grateful to every person out there who has supported me over the past few months", he wrote.

Disney doesn't appear to have shared anything by way of a full, public explanation for the surprise reversal at the time of this writing, but it's safe to say the cast members who rushed to Gunn's defense - some of whom even threatened to not take part in the next movie at all - may have played a part. "I am always learning and will continue to work at being the best human being I can be". In the past, I have apologised for humour of mine that hurt people.

"My days saying something just because it's shocking and trying to get a reaction are over".

Bautista acknowledged the jokes were bad taste, but insisted the filmmaker should not be forever defined by shock-wisecracks made many years ago. "Love you to you all".

Deadline first reported the news, which has been confirmed to CNET by Gunn's representatives.

At the time, Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said, "The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James' Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio's values and we have severed our business relationship with him".
