Walt Disney Studios president Alan Horn reportedly met with James on multiple occasions to discuss the situation following his apology, and chose to reverse the decision. It seems that is intact and his new contract states he cannot begin the third Guardians film until he completes The Suicide Squad.
Gunn posted a tweet Friday afternoon acknowledging his return to Disney, saying he was "tremendously grateful" to his supporters and "excited to continue making films that investigate the ties of love that bind us all".
After he was sacked, Disney condemned Gunn's past social media posts, which included bad jokes about violence and sexual assault against children.
Although complications arose when Gunn was snapped up by Warner Bros. to write and direct the DC Comics sequel The Suicide Squad last October, Kevin Feige's team at Marvel Studio and Horn's at Disney were willing to wait for Gunn to become available again before bringing him back to the fold.
He was sacked last July over the tweets that Disney called "indefensible".
Gunn offered a statement Friday, thanking his fans for their continued support. "As I have discussed publicly many times, as I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humor". "Love you to you all". In the past, I have apologised for humour of mine that hurt people.
James Gunn is seen upon arrival at Haneda Airport on December 18, 2017 in Tokyo, Japan. A Guardians of the Galaxy attraction has also opened at Disneyland.
Following his firing previous year, Gunn was snapped up by Warner Bros to write and direct The Suicide Squad sequel, starring Idris Elba, out in 2021.
