Today the ENTIRE cast of the Guardians of the Galaxy have released a joint statement on two weeks ago of the firing of director James Gunn from the franchise due to decade-old controversial tweets. Here's the statement via Dave Bautista (the first member of the cast to be vocal on the topic while others showed support, but weren't as vocal until now):
As for that petition for Disney to reconsider? It's sitting at just over 342,000 signatures. So what do you feel will happen next? Will Disney reconsider? Will they stand their ground? Will Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 even happen now? So many questions, not many answers. But when they do arrive, we'll let you know about them.
