Published

James Gunn is still will not return for the third installment of Guardians of the Galaxy.

The director was fired after old Tweets resurfaced that joked about pedophilia, the decade-old tweets were brought to light by a campaign apparently led by alt-right activists.

The reaction led to a meeting between Gunn and studio chairman Alan Horn, where Variety says Horn was merely looking to “clear the air” as a professional courtesy. However, the studio will not be bringing Gunn back, and Marvel president Kevin Feige is said to stand by this decision.

The cast support has been supported the reinstatement and posted a full statement.

Dave Bautista has been more vocal going so far as to say he would not return and Disney could recast his character.

“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,” said Bautista. “I’d be doing James a disservice if I didn’t.”

Would you guys be interested in rebooting Blade?’ So that was one. Obviously, nothing came out of that! But that was my first intro into looking at potential comic book properties.”

Marvel has been rumored to be working on two Blade projects with original star Wesley Snipes in mind to return to the title role.

Ben Affleck And Oscar Isaac Try To Pull Off The Biggest Heist In History In ‘Triple Frontier’ Trailer

Published

on

Netflix has unveiled a trailer and release date for Triple Frontier, a new cartel thriller with an impressive cast. Starring Oscar Isaac, Ben Affleck, Son’s of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam and Pedro Pascal, the film follows a team of ex-US Special Forces soldiers working for themselves instead of their country. They aim to steal millions of dollars from a dangerous South American drug cartel, but of course, things go wrong and it turns into a fight for survival.

The idea isn’t exactly original, as theaters and TV are stuffed with cartel-type projects like Sicario and Netflix’s own Narcos: Mexico. “Make no mistake about it. You guys need to own the fact that we do not have the flag on our shoulders,” says Affleck in a key scene that lays out the stakes. “You cannot go back to your normal life after tonight.”

Triple Frontier will be available in March.
