Marvel should be celebrating the box office and critical success of the Oscar-worthy Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, where the Guardians were involved in numerous film's best scenes, but instead, they're now dealing with the fall-out of Gunn's controversial dismissal.
The third installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise has been put on hold, The Hollywood Reporter said. The site reports that crew members who were preparing for pre-production have been released and made free to find new work.
Guardians 3 was already in pre-production with full production planned for the autumn and filming expected to start in the New Year. There were even rumblings that even Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was lobbying Horn to re-hire Gunn, but it's now become clear that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will be moving forward without the franchise's creator at the helm. In the midst of the all the brouhaha, a source told the Hollywood Reporter that "The timeline (of the movie) has been pushed out".

"The injury [last season] was very bad for me and my head, but when the ball goes into the net everything changes". On the subject of Loftus-Cheek, Sarri added: "I am not able to promise anything to anybody".
However, the firing of James Gunn provoked an angry reaction from some cast members including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Karen Gillan, who wrote an open letter in support of the director. Despite apologizing for said tweets, admitting that there was a time in which he sought to shock people with his sense of humor, the mouse house insisted Gunn's tweets went against the company's values and chose to cut business ties with him.
The company insists they're just taking their time looking for another filmmaker to finish the trilogy.
