Chris Pratt's thoughts...

Chris Pratt's thoughts...

This is so vague and contextless, I don’t know if this is the worst way to try and defend someone because people could take it anyway they want and miss the point or the best way because if there is some backlash from the company towards all their employees that defend Gunn he could just claim it was about anything else.

Nah completely unintentional coincidence. What are the chances?!

I feel like he should put more context if he really wants to make a difference in James situation.I still appreciate the post though.Chris Pratt’s like one of the noblest celebrities out there.

trying too hard

50,000 sign petition for Disney to rehire James Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

These petitions never do anything.

It's his story. He deserves to finish it. This whole thing is bullshit.

It’s done. Let’s move on.

Also, petitions don’t do jack.

lmao

Who determines offensive? Who says what is hate or not? How far back can you go? What line is crossed before you are fired? When does this madness end?

I frequently see this Donald episode on the lists, and it usually uses this image. I feel the point is missed as the entire episode is opposing Hitler and nazi Germany. It actually does have outdated stereotypes appropriate for such a list, but it's the caricatures of the Germans and Japanese, not Donald in his nightmare of living in Germany.

It's also propaganda in support of the war. These almost always have some dehumanization of the enemy.

The Donald one is ANTI NAZI. It’s actually a legit hilarious cartoon lampooning Nazism and Fascism. I’d recommend it.

How many people who worked on these still work at Disney?

Just to add to this, the Donald Duck one ends, IIRC, with him waking up from this nightmare of being a Nazi, seeing the Statue of Liberty and being relieved he lives in America and not Nazi Germany.

Sean Gunn's response to James Gunn's firing

Sean Gunn's response to James Gunn's firing

That backs up my suspicion that working for Marvel on Guardians genuinely brought out the best in Gunn, that he was one of the luckiest people on Earth.

It's sad because I think Gunn needed Marvel more than Marvel needs Gunn.

That bit about Starlord rallying the Guardians kind of broke me a little bit.

I'm just at a loss for words with the whole situation.

Yeah because it's so fucking stupid. Let's just start judging people on things they said 10 years ago. Regardless if they grew as a person or not.

Thanos SDCC Poster

Thanos SDCC Poster

Never do two things half assed, always do one thing whole assed

I haven’t seen a motivational poster in a long time. Maybe that’s why I’m so lazy.

"This day extracts a heavy toll".

I love how they made Thanos such a broken man. Not a villain who takes pride in what he's doing (and more than likely hates it) but feels he needs to for selfless reasons. So well written.

The gauntlet looks down for the count.

Cloak & Dagger Renewed For Second Season

Cloak & Dagger Renewed For Second Season

I'm so excited! Cloak And Dagger has exceeded all my expectations. I need a season two now! I can already imagine all the awesome comic book things and crossovers they'll do.

Disney-owned cable network Freeform has renewed the superhero drama for a second season. A new round of 10 episodes will return in spring 2019.

Gotta build up that library for the streaming service.

I was also impressed with the show..I had low expectations but it was really well done.

James Gunn: ‘I Understand and Accept’ Disney’s Move to Drop Me From ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

James Gunn: ‘I Understand and Accept’ Disney’s Move to Drop Me From ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

From the Article

“My words of nearly a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative,” Gunn said in a statement. “I have regretted them for many years since — not just because they were stupid, not at all funny, wildly insensitive, and certainly not provocative like I had hoped, but also because they don’t reflect the person I am today or have been for some time.”

“Regardless of how much time has passed, I understand and accept the business decisions taken today. Even these many years later, I take full responsibility for the way I conducted myself then,” he continued. “All I can do now, beyond offering my sincere and heartfelt regret, is to be the best human being I can be: accepting, understanding, committed to equality, and far more thoughtful about my public statements and my obligations to our public discourse. To everyone inside my industry and beyond, I again offer my deepest apologies. Love to all.”

James has redeemed himself, surely, but I can also understand why Disney fired him.

I'm disappointed in the decision, but I don't blame them for making it. If that makes sense.

Well I'm not quite sure how exactly to feel right now

If they wanted to fire him over this, they should have done it the first time it came up back in 2011. Doing it now feels like double jeopardy.

Just realized this a few minutes ago, Disney knew about the edgy jokes and still hired him.

It's not a problem.until the internet gets a hold of it. Then it's a viral pr nightmare scenario. If disney doesn't fire him, they are now "supporting a pedophile rapists asshole" despite knowing people literally change over the course of 10 years

Guy should have straight up nuked his Twitter account and made a new one when he was hired by Disney, tbh.

Not even the internet, specifically alt-right trolls getting ahold of it after you've insulted their god-emperor

Didn't Disney research him before they hired him to do GoTG?

Just when I thought that one of the trilogies would have the same director for all 3 films, this happens

Waititi taking over would soften the blow.

It was known since day 1.

He has always been of that crass u mad trigerred kind of humor.

Infinity War - Dr. Strange is a Badass

Infinity War - Dr. Strange is a Badass

Just came to this cool little realization watching clips on Youtube.

Before their battle on Titan, Thanos tells Dr. Strange "The hardest choices require the strongest wills" in response to his assertion that he will murder trillions.

Dr. Strange replies "Then you will find our wills equal".

At first I thought this was just a cool line, but I just realized that because Dr. Strange is willing to give Thanos the Time Stone and ALLOW him to murder trillions for the 1 in 14 million chance to save everyone, his will truly IS equal to Thanos's.

Thought that was cool, and makes Dr. Strange's conflict with Thanos much more legit.

Dr. Strange quickly became one of my favorite MCU characters. His film had so much packed into it with parallels and symbolism when the casual viewer could look at it as just some a-typical origin film.

Infinity War was a great Dr. Strange movie.

I love his cockiness when he’s like “he brought you face to face with the master of the motherfucking mystic arts bitch.”

Completely agree. It's in my top 6 marvel movies. I hate when idiots say it's just iron man with magic. Such a beautiful film.
