La scorsa settimana, lo scrittore e regista di “Guardiani della Galassia” James Gunn è stato rimosso dal suo ruolo di regista di “Guardiani della Galassia Vol. 3” dopo che alcuni controversi tweet del suo account Twitter sono riemersi e sono stati pubblicati per la prima volta dopo diversi anni.
La delicata situazione del regista di “Guardiani della Galassia Vol. 3” ha costretto migliaia di persone a esprimere le loro opinioni, comprese le star del franchise che hanno fatto ricorso ai social media per mostrare il loro sostegno a James Gunn. L’elenco delle stelle che mostrano il supporto per Gunn include una citazione biblica pertinente dello stesso Star-Lord, Chris Pratt:
Zoe Saldana, che interpreta Gamora:
It’s been a challenging weekend I’m not gonna lie. I’m pausing myself to take everything in before I speak out of term. I just want everyone to know I love ALL members of my GOTG family. Always will.

Dave Bautista AKA Drax:
I will have more to say but for right now all I will say is this..@JamesGunn is one of the most loving,caring,good natured people I have ever met. He’s gentle and kind and cares deeply for people and animals. He’s made mistakes. We all have. Im NOT ok with what’s happening to him

Anche la malvagia Nebulosa, Karen Gillan, ha condiviso il suo pensiero:
Love to every single member of my GOTG family.

Michael Rooker, che interpreta Yondu, ha condiviso i suoi pensieri prima di cancellare il suo account Twitter. Il suo tweet finale diceva: “Questo account sarà inattivo dopo oggi. Siamo molto stanchi e arrabbiati per il BULLS-T in corso … né io né il mio rappresentante useremo di nuovo Twitter. Twitter fa schifo e non voglio avere niente a che fare con questo. Grazie a tutti coloro che hanno dato parole gentili e supporto. Ci vediamo su Instagram. ”
E infine, il fratello di James Gunn, Sean, che interpreta Kraglin, ha condiviso un post su Instagram:
It goes without saying that I love and support my brother James and I’m quite proud of how kind, generous, and compassionate he is with all the people in his life. Since he was a kid, it was clear he had a desire (maybe destiny) to be an artist, tell stories, find his voice through comics, films, his band. The struggle to find that voice was sometimes clunky, misguided, or downright stupid, and sometimes wonderful, moving, and hilarious. Since devoting his entire life to the Guardians movies and MCU six years ago, I’ve seen him channel that voice into his work and seen him transform from the guy who made up things to shock people. I saw firsthand as he went from worrying about “softening his edge” for a larger audience to realizing that this “edge” wasn’t as useful of a tool as he thought it was. That his gift for storytelling was something better. I saw that he was more open-hearted than the guy who thought he needed to get a rise out of people by making nasty or offensive jokes (or whatever you choose to call them—I don’t think his bluer material was ever his funniest and neither does Mom). And the best part is, this change in my brother was reflected in the change that the Guardians go through. I’ve heard my brother say many times that when Quill rallies the team with “this is our chance to give a shit”—to care—that it’s the pep talk he himself needed to hear. It’s part of what made working on the Guardians movies such a rewarding experience for the cast. We managed to find ourselves involved in a big-budget superhero movie that was, at its core, deeply personal. That’s a gift. And that’s why it’s good. This isn’t new information, by the way. It’s all stuff that James has explained many times in interviews, in more detail and more eloquently. It’s not some new spin. It’s always been part of this story. So I guess my hope is that fans continue to watch and appreciate the Guardians movies, not despite the fact that the filmmaker used to be kind of a jackass, but because of it. They are, after all, movies about discovering your best self. Working on those movies made my brother a better person, and they made me one too. I’ll always be proud of that. Peace.
