Batista threatens to leave Guardians Of The Galaxy 3


The old resurfaced tweets from Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn quickly became a big controversy and as a result, Disney officials decided to fire Gunn from the third film of the franchise.

Since his firing, numerous cast and crew members have shown their support for the released director, including the former WWE Star Dave Bautista.

In a recent statement he released, the former World Champion threatened to leave the movie franchise if Marvel Studious decide not to use the script James wrote for the third Guardians movie:

“Where I’m at right now is that if [Marvel] don’t use that script, then I’m going to ask them to release me from my contract, cut me out or recast me. I’d be doing James a disservice if I didn’t.”

Now it’d be interesting to see how Marvel and Disney officials reply to Batista and if all this support is enough to bring back James Gunn into the MCU fold.

    Too many franchises, is it too hard to write original movies today?

    I want him to return to WWE and take away one of the world championships from the midgets for as long as possible.

    After completely botching the Star Wars franchise and alienating fans with their social justice bullcrap, Disney needs to stick the to straight and narrow and not piss anyone else off.

  • Dave

    If he were alone you might be right, but the whole cast is with him, which gives Disney a bad rep. Disney has more to lose in that situation which means they will probably back down. That is my prediction.

    Guardians is done… with this much negative crap, another movie franchise bites the dust.

    Give ’em hell, Dave. People in this country have a right to stand up for their beliefs. Hopefully, Disney will do the right thing.

    Trying to back out of a contract on a Hollywood movie will not go well for him, especially against a juggernaut like Disney. Regardless of how you feel about Gunns dismissal, you cannot just ask to be let out of such a critical contract.
