A new report from The Hollywood Reporter suggests Gunn is being sought out by a number of studios and producers following his expected departure from Disney and Marvel.

Regarding James Gunn leaving Disney, according to the article, multiple sources state that Gunn is "locked in complicated negotiations with Disney over his exit settlement".

Warner Bros. and DC especially are reportedly interested in recruiting Gunn if he were to part ways with Disney.

After the comments were brought to the attention of Disney, they issued the statement, "The offensive attitudes and statements on James' Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio's values, and we have severed our business relationship with him".

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 without James Gunn's script?

Though writer-director James Gunn was sacked from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, there's a chance he could rejoin the Marvel Cinematic Universe for another film.

Until that final exit is settled, no studio can officially make an overture for his next project. Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, Groot, Nebula and Mantis wouldn't be who they are on the big screen without Gunn's particular sensibilities and style, and it's in Disney's best interest to have the next film maintain the tonal continuity - even if another filmmaker is brought on-board to execute it (admittedly a pretty thankless job). Dave Bautista doesn't want to have any part of that.

Since Gunn was sacked by Disney in July, he received an outpouring of support from his former Guardians of the Galaxy cast and from industry insiders who disapproved of Disney kowtowing to alt-right demands.

Despite almost a month passing since Disney's firing of James Gunn, the status of the immensely popular Guardians of the Galaxy films remains a mystery. Admittedly though, he apologized for such "edgy" and crude behavior six years ago when he began working for Disney, and has indeed stopped making the type of dark humor he did before Disney hired him-well aware of at least his previous films, if not his social media image. No director is attached.
