Consistent with their values

Disgraced director James Gunn is back at Disney:
James Gunn has certainly been on a roller coaster of a ride with Disney and his role on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. First, he was fired. Then, Disney wouldn't hire him back. Then, Gunn's script was going to be used. Now, Gunn has been hired back to direct.

Shockingly, Disney has changed its tune about Gunn, according to Deadline. He will both write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which currently does not have a release date.

Back in July 2018, Gunn was fired by Disney when controversial tweets, from many years prior, resurfaced where Gunn made joked about pedophilia and rape. Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said, "The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James' Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio's values, and we have severed our business relationship with him."
It would appear those "offensive attitudes and statements" are no longer inconsistent with Disney's values. As if they ever actually were.

UPDATE: Disney never even considered getting another director. The whole Gunn "firing" was simply a charade performed for the public in order to take the heat off Disney.
James Gunn is back as director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 — and it sounds like Disney never seriously explored a replacement after all.

Gunn, who was fired from the Marvel superhero sequel last summer when old tweets of his joking about rape and pedophilia were resurfaced, on Friday confirmed reports that he has been rehired for the project.

Vol. 3 was originally expected to be released in 2020, but preproduction was put on hold last August after Gunn's firing. Reports suggested that Disney was launching a search for his replacement so the movie could go forward, with The Hollywood Reporter writing that the studio was taking a "measured approach in their search for a director." Rumors swirled for months about who was being considered, and Vice director Adam McKay suggested in an interview that he had discussed possibly taking over the project.

But The Hollywood Reporter now reports that "what almost no one knew" until today was that Marvel and Disney had actually "never undertaken a search" for another director at all and, in fact, had "gone back to Gunn and made a secret." Deadline similarly reports that the decision to bring back Gunn was made "months ago" and that Marvel "never met with or considered any other director."

Looks like the Hollywood pedophiles have regrouped and are projecting strength.

If Gunn is a pedo (he is clearly pedo sympathetic or at least pretty sick), I hope some hard evidence is produced after Disney has spent millions on his film. They would have a hard time explaining that one away.

They demonetized Oaen Benjamin's YouTube channel just now.

Wondering what took them so long.

Blogger Joe Smith March 15, 2019 6:29 PM  

In order for Disney to remain consistent with its values, Disney will procure minors for Gunn to violate throughout the filming of Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Disney will also purchase dozens of unclaimed seats in theaters all around the U.S. after release in order to artificially inflate opening week sales. You know... to remain consistent with their values.

Blogger Ingot9455 March 15, 2019 6:44 PM  

Alita was well worth seeing on the big screen. It is a no pee break movie, I'll warn.

They probably didn`t have much of a choice considering how bad their latest sjw morality play is doing. Buying tickets for empty seats now, huh.

The only value Disney holds is cash money.

well, EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING IT, so why should he be punished?

You're not going to do anything about it.
You want to avoid being associated with the Filipino Trump fanatic fakebomber from Jew Colony Florida, or other hoax characters.

Because violence is bad, except you should punch nazis, which includes Trump.

Blogger Zaklog the Great March 15, 2019 7:41 PM  

@13 No. If that were the case, they wouldn't be producing SJW drek from the Marvel Studios and allowing their actresses to run around foully insulting their core audience. Monetary greed can cause some bad actions, but it has limits. This is a more diabolical corruption.

Blogger tz March 15, 2019 7:59 PM  

They don't value profits.
They don't value art.
They do value evil creepiness and pedos.

Compare what Tucker said v.s. the large volume Gunn unloaded.

Except I don't know who will be alive after Endgame, one or more of the female characters will become the next Disney princess. "They find this queen that can freeze anything with a wave of her hand!"...

Then they can do Beauty and the Wildebeest with - is it Timon or Pumbaa?

I'd pay to see an updated - but with original script "Song of the South".

That's a meme/concept that needs to be done away with.

Google Kevin Spacey. Follow the link to the TMZ story. Looks like he's been spotted back in LA. Curious timing given Gunn's rehiring announcement today.

@Jab Burrwalky
Yah I saw it last week its pretty good especially for an anime adaptation. Its two hours long but in my opinion worth the time if not just for the fight scenes.

Hey Vox:

I was watching the Darkstream on Starving the Bear and had to pause for dinner. When I came back, it was gone.

@22 - that is the SJW socialism "vote for me" problem where young girls become princesses to ride the unicorns on the cock carousel.

In "Time Bandits", the climax has them getting advanced tech weapons and bringing them to the final battle. (D)Evil says "I control them", and he does!

Power corrupts. That is the error Christians make, they assume that if they get the (Frodo's) ring of power they can use it to fix things. I think that is why Tolkien included the Galadriel "dark queen" scene.

A Century ago Pope Leo 13 had a vision, and composed the St. Michael Prayer because it said God would give the devil 100 years. He imposed all the points of the Communist Party platform - the Federal Reserve, IRS, Direct election of Senators (see which states are Red), through Women's Suffrage. That is over but the damage remains and it is up to us to restore things.

Yes, shield maidens (Virgins! Trigger alert!) can defeat the Witch King (wait, in the Last Witch King, he had an ordinary life and suddenly was leader - is he a Gamma!?). But they are 99.44% called to be ladies and helpmeets. Not Joan of Arc.

What makes them so confident? Are they deluded? Or do they know something we don't?

Big names have been acting strange recently. The Dick's CEO pulling all guns from sale and losing 10% their stock value in a day. Reckless business decisions...I think with 5G online they feel invincible because the energy of the people will be drained quickly. Vox is right, keep your eyes out for strange events.

Interesting how the media focuses on the "jokes" and ignores Gunn's connection to a convicted pedophile with whom he was making some of these "jokes".

"Did you, and if so, is it worth time I can't get back to watch it?"

She's the antithesis to Captain Marvel. She gets excited about the routine niceties of life. The enlargement of her eyes makes her appear innocent and vulnerable, and she even has her life saved by her adoptive father. Contrast this to C.M., who punches an armada of warships to death literally without breaking a sweat or messing up her hair.

Basically there's same amount of evidence of Gunn as there was of Michael Jackson. And they went rabid with Jackson after the documentary. So what changed for Gunn?

Gunn is a Jew. Jackson was black. Kevin Hart was also treated more harshly than Gunn.

Also, Jackson was powerful and was starting to rebel against his masters. Whether the pedo stuff was real or not, it was used as an opportunity to break his empire and rob him. James Gunn is nothing. Unlike Jackson or Roseanne, he'll obey for money, sex and drugs.

Blogger ANRE92 March 16, 2019 3:12 AM  

Also ofc most importantly, the pedo Jackson stuff was more persuasive to the normies who dismissed the pedo Gunn stuff as "just jokes".

Blogger Shevtar March 16, 2019 4:38 AM  

Disney never fired him, they kept his script for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, didn't search for any other director and he is credited as an executive producer for the upcoming Avengers Endgame. It was a ruse, they were afraid that Gunn scandal might complicate Fox merger

Joan was little more than a helpmeet, or more accurately, a living totem. Her actual martial value was virtually nil.

For all that is worth, Disney can buy my ticket for AV Endgame too, not going to bother after including Captain C**t.

I might watch Endgame without paying at some point, but definitively not giving a penny to (((Popular Culture))) any time soon.

The best is all the normies and SJWs rationalizing this as "humans can change, he deserves a chance"

While were at it, give Kevin Spacey his career back.

Blogger JAG March 16, 2019 2:36 PM  

No matter how underhanded, conniving, or evil you imagine an SJW to be, you will always fall short of reality.

Pedo jokes are okay if you are an SJW. Being an evil creep is okay if you are an SJW.

Here's to hoping we live long enough to see the paradigm shift in a big way.

This topic reminded me of the famous 1967 Disneyland Memorial Orgy poster. Color poster versions used to be sold in head shops long ago. Disney sued the creator.

@42- Napoleon said in war the moral is to the physical as three to one. So her totemistic powers were important. But she had no direct military importance, no. Can anyone imagine a seventeen year-old girl hacking at grown men in full armor? Or grown men listening to her strategic or tactical advi?

Those aliens and their garbage products, if not for the controversial attention seeking writers who shamelessly promote them and their swill, engaging with the public on their behalf, they would be nobody enjoying the protection of a culture that mistakenly values such subversive endeavors.
