James Gunn is an American director, screenwriter, and producer. He is best known for his work on Slither, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, as well as his contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2013. He will now write and possibly direct Suicide Squad 2.
Gunn was set to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for Disney until a number of controversial tweets from Gunn's twitter account resurfaced regarding pedophilia, child abuse, and rape from 2008 to 2012 that he then tried to delete once they had resurfaced. Gunn had since been fired from the project and payed out of his contract with Disney and the Marvel Cinematic/Cosmic Universe.
