    Twitter didn't exist when he was that young. In a sense we all got our first opportunities to learn this lesson at the same time, regardless of age.

    The cast issued an open letter supporting Gunn:

    “to share our experience having spent many years together on set”

    "He was always great with us" testimony has never flown in these kinds of situations and never will.

    They don't really have any choice in the matter at this point. Dude said some messed up stuff in public. Stuff that hits Disney right in their piggy bank. This might be where people wake up and start learning not to post shit like that online.

    Except, it's not hurting and never really COULD hurt disney in their piggy bank.

    That's like saying someone who does films for Disney telling "The Aristocrats" joke at a Comedy Central roast is hurting their piggy bank.

    Disney's piggy bank is invincible because it's reinforced on so many fronts.

    And now the guy who plays Drax is saying he won't do Guardians 3 without Gunn's script, which presumably requires Gunn.

    There's loyalty, and then there's "continued paycheck from Disney/Marvel".

    Have to admire him sticking to his gunns.

    Especially when he just blew away in a puff of ash. The opportunity to kill off anyone who talks back is there.

    Once upon a time you might have been right, but in today's social "justice" world even the tiniest thing can and does bring institutions down. Given the recent lackluster performance of Solo, they know their franchises are not unassailable. They aren't going to take even the slightest chance of allowing anything to happen to their Marvel cash cow.

    Solo wasn't a good movie.
    Rogue One wasn't all that good either for a lot of people
    Out of recent Star Wars movies, 1/4 wasn't a huge hit. The quality of the others (RO/TFA/TLJ), box office notwithstanding, were widely debated upon.

    RO: 532m/ww 1056m
    Solo: 213m/ww 390m
    TFA: 936m/ww 2068m
    TLJ: 620m/ww 1332m

    Iron Man 2 wasn't great, but RDJ pulled it up by the bootstraps and made it not-suck. Thor: Dark World wasn't great, but had some redeeming qualities. I've only watched the former a dozen times, and the latter three, but that's only because that part of Thor's story doesn't thrill me.

    IM: 318m/ww 585m
    Thor: 181m/ww 449m

    IM2: 312m/ww 623m
    TDW: 206m/ww 644m

    IM3: 409m/ww 1215m
    T3R: 315m/ww 853m

    Two semi-duds out of 19 is a pretty good track record, all things considered.

    They may use Gunn's script after all (money is being negotiated), and other studios are ready to pick him up - including Marvel:

    Twitter is not a Comedy Central roast. And no prominent Hollywood personality has told the Aristocrats joke in a public setting in years, for good reason.
