It seems that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will not have Taika Waititi at the helm. In case you were under a rock, James Gunn this past year was relieved from Disney after some old derogatory tweets where dug up from his account. Since then, the community has been in shambles figuring out who will direct the third and most likely last Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Many MCU fans and moviegoers have stated that it would be awesome for Taika Waititi to direct the project.
The Thor: Ragnarok director themes and style match very well with that of the Guardians films. This was all hope until recently when he shot down the idea of working on the films: “For me, those are James [Gunn]’s films.”. James Gunn did make the franchise what it was and has been with them every step of the way. It will be interesting to see who Disney will tag to work on the project with the director spot still up for grabs! What do you think? Would you have liked to see a gradient film directed by Taika Waititi? Who would you tag for the job? Let us know! For all things geek, you are in the right place.
