Disney Delays ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3.’ Indefinitely…

‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’ Pre-Production Crew Dismissed As Project Goes On Hold

On Aug. 15, Variety reported that Disney and Marvel were standing strong on their decision not to re-hire Gunn for the third installment despite pressure from the "Guardians" cast, including Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana. Now, Disney and Marvel have reportedly put the film's production on hold indefinitely.

Despite these comments being made before Gunn was involved with Disney, the studio couldn't ignore the severity of these remarks, resulting in his removal from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as director.

The trade reports that Disney has dismissed the crew members which had assembled for pre-production to seek other work.

Hurricane Lane Forecast to Turn Toward Hawaii with Swell, Wind, Weather Impacts
The hurricane threat has forced residents to scramble to stock up on essential items such as water, toilet paper and ramen. Early indications showed that the south end of the island up to the western side would be taking the brunt of the storm.

Gunn, of course, was famously fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after Cernovich uncovered a slew of almost decade-old tweets in which Gunn made jokes about rape and pedophilia. The film's release may ultimately be years away.

Although the Hollywood Reporter says one source categorises the hold as "temporary" and a "regrouping", the logistics of the situation mean fans should not look to a 2020 release date any more with any confidence. In the midst of the all the brouhaha, a source told the Hollywood Reporter that "The timeline (of the movie) has been pushed out".

The company insists they're just taking their time looking for another filmmaker to finish the trilogy. The cast, meanwhile, of "Guardians of the Galaxy" have been making their feelings known on Disney's firing, with Dave Bautista repeatedly putting the House of Mouse on blast via Twitter whenever he can. THR notes that Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi recently had a meeting with Marvel, but it's unknown what was discussed.
