James Gunn has been re-instated as director of Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, according to Deadline. Gunn has reportedly been meeting with Walt Disney Studios president Alan Horn on several occasions in an attempt to mend fences, prompted by Marvel Studios’ team talking to Horn’s office.

The Hollywood trade said that Horn was persuaded to go-back on his initial decision to fire Gunn by the writer/director’s public apology “and his handling of the situation after”.

Neither Disney nor Marvel have released a timetable for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. While it was initially intended to debut in May 2020 prior to Gunn’s firing, Gunn has since signed on to direct Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad sequel. Deadline reports he will still direct the rival Warner Bros. feature before returning to the Guardians franchise.
