I don't need to cope with anything really. This is irrelevant to me. We got 2 decent GotG movies.

I do chuckle at the absurdity, and I'd never in a million years have fired him over this. But I just can't help but laugh at how out of control this is becoming. I saw a screen image showing this guy deleted like 10k tweets. Went from having 31k to 20k lol.

Right. <--- sarcasm

You don't understand why Disney fired a guy over pedo and rape jokes? I do, they have an image to keep. He's since apologized and said he used to make crude humor for fun and to get a rise out of people, but he's not the same man he was years ago. Still, Disney has to protect their image first and foremost.

Disney really had no choice, they have an image they need to protect and someone making a bunch of rape and pedophilia jokes is not going to be acceptable to them. One does have to wonder why they even hired him in the first place, though, surely they saw these tweets prior to that.

It's really too bad, it's actually hard to overstate how big a deal this is. As far as behind the scenes people go, this is honestly probably second only to Feige himself getting fired, as Gunn, besides making GotG3, had recently been put in charge of the entire cosmic slate of the MCU that were upcoming in phase 4.

Come on. This was said in jest. You people are lunatics I swear.

I think this guy is an SJW based on how I've seen him act in the past but damn. This shit is getting out of control in a way. The only solace is that it is no longer mostly relegated to one side.

Come on now. They had a choice. I bet you if they had just sat and let this play out they wouldn't have really lost anything.

Oh shit some guy made some dumb jokes years ago. Do people think he is truly pro pedophilia? I don't get it.

It's Disney, Surt. You know, the wholesome family orientated corporation giant. Really not hard to understand why they fired a guy over rape and pedo jokes.

No of course not, but again, this is Disney, they are still, first and foremost, a family company, and I don't blame them at all for wanting to sever ties here, even though yeah the jokes were old and if they really really wanted to they probably could have ridden it out. But there'd obviously be a great deal of controversy over that decision that they probably feared would hurt their family-friendly image. I really can't blame them.

I do wonder if they're still going to tap into his ideas already penned out while not officially given him credit instead of starting completely fresh.

Apparently he had already finished the script and was going to start filming later this year. I imagine they will still use that script, so he'll probably still get a writing credit of some sort.

Honestly he really should have scrubbed his twitter account as soon as Disney hired him. It was stupid of him not to since he had like dozens of these jokes.

Eh, pretty sure his contract would allow in Disney not giving him credit in such specific cases while using the material that is theirs even if he wrote it. Corporations protect themselves that way.

I don't believe so. The WGA is very strict about these things and if they use his script he will legally have to get a credit unless they change it so much that his ideas are no longer recognizable.

Fair enough then. Though I have heard of contracts specially singling out that the company can keep rights while not giving credit, or terminating contracts without paying out the early terminating fees, if certain violations happen like being charged with a crime (not in Gunn's case), as a means to protect themselves.

It's on the fourth page, Quan started it. You're so lazy, steve.

But considering the latest news... yeah, it deserves a brand new thread...

Yeah, I suppose it's possible, but I think in Gunn's case if they use his script, he will need to get some kind of writing credit.
