On Monday, a billboard calling for James Gunn to be rehired as director of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” went up just four miles away from Disneyland. The ad was paid for by a fan-created crowdfunding campaign that has raised just under $5,000 since September. Reading “Save the Galaxy: James Gunn for Vol. 3,” the digital sign, which went up Monday in in Garden Grove, California, directs people to the campaign’s website, www.rehirejamesgunn.com.
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, and the rest of the cast release a statement supporting their director and slamming the decision to let him go.

We went through all 18 films and sleuthed out the clues to come up with the ultimate timeline of events leading up to the blockbuster.
James Gunn’s sequel does provide two small — but immensely telling — clues about how the super-team-up blockbuster 'Infinity War' may play out.
When Yahoo Movies connected with the former WWE star to talk about his new movie, Bushwick — a gripping “you are there” combat movie set in present-day Brooklyn and pitting ordinary citizens like Brittany Snow‘s frantic Lucy and Bautista’s gruff neighborhood guy Stupe against a well-armed Texas militia — Bautista confessed to having a “fuzzy” brain thanks to having just stepped off a plane from China.
The Marvel and DC fandoms may be sworn enemies, but that doesn't mean that an MCU star can't have some fun dream-casting herself as a classic DC villain
With Star Wars Land still two years away, Disneyland is banking on another of its billion-dollar properties to draw visitors to the park over the coming months. Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout!, a Marvel-ized reboot of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride at Disney’s California Adventure designed by writer-director James Gunn, opened Thursday night in Anaheim, Calif. The attraction, which finds the Guardians trying to escape from the Collector’s universe-spanning museum of specimens and relics, is the anchor for the park’s Heroes of Summer initiative. Aside from the thrill ride, where visitors are lifted 30 stories high, then plunged into free fall, characters from the MCU will be stationed throughout for photo ops and meet-and-greets. Yahoo Movies attended the opening ceremonies for the Guardians ride; click through for the highlights of the gala event and a sneak peek inside Mission: Breakout!
Drax looks good, but he has something of a Thunder Cats' Panthro thing going on with his huge frame totally gray.
Here is a quick refresher to remind you what happened the last time we saw our friends Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot, and Drax.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been criticized for its lack of female superheroes — Captain Marvel will be the first solo film starring a female character since the MCU started in 2008 with Iron Man. Director James Gunn talked to Yahoo Movies about his approach to female characters. “I think, especially in Guardians Vol. 2, people will see that … the second story is really the story of the Guardians as a whole,” he told our Kevin Polowy.
James Gunn came into Yahoo Studios Thursday for a Facebook Live discussion about The Belko Experiment — the bloody new workplace thriller he wrote and produced — but conversation inevitably turned to that other little property he masterminds, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The big news surrounding the MCU’s outer-space odyssey today revolved around Gunn seemingly confirming a threequel ahead of May’s release of Vol. 2. In simplest terms, his comments should not be viewed as an announcement that there will in fact be a Vol. 3….
Tie-in products for many big-budget extravaganzas have been largely focused on male characters, be it Star Wars: The Force Awakens (and the lack of Rey toys) or Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron, both of which inspired social media hashtags — #WheresGamora and #WheresBlackWidow — to decry the absence of merchandise for their female leads. With more Marvel movies on the way, the studio’s head honcho is letting fans know that those past mistakes won’t be repeated this summer. During an interview with Slashfilm conducted on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Kevin Feige directly addressed the #WheresBlackWidow controversy and offered his support for the outrage that drove the campaign.
The band’s back together. Director James Gunn has reassembled his oddball team of outer-space heroes — and cued up a whole bunch of ’60s/’70s pop music — for the sequel to his 2014 blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe with new worlds, new alien civilizations, and the unexpected Tango & Cash reunion (both Kurt Russell, who plays Peter Quill’s dad, Ego the Living Planet, and Sylvester Stallone, in an unannounced role, are in the movie). To help pass time until the film’s May 5 opening, we’ve collected all the publicity images and movie stills in one handy gallery for your viewing pleasure. So crank up the oldies and enjoy!

Dancing Baby Groot took the universe by storm when he sprouted at the end of 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy. As the trailers and previews for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 show, the sapling superhero, now free of his pot and ready to rumble, will be a force to be reckoned with despite his diminutive stature. Naturally, with something as adorable and formidable as Baby Groot, the powers that be know fans will be clamoring for one of their own.
Baby Groot hijacks every moment he’s on screen in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer, so it only makes sense that Marvel is going to market the heck out of the adorable tree dude (despite what director James Gunn says). Case in point: Hasbro’s newly unveiled Guardians toy line features plenty of Groot in — spoiler alert! — varying sizes.
Director accepts —and defends — the findings on behalf of his visual effects artists, but is ambivalent about celebrating in his Twitter response.
Disney California Adventure’s Tower of Terror ride is one of the theme park’s most iconic attractions. Now, the venue is finally giving fans a first look at the spiffed-up attraction, which will be based on everyone’s favorite gang of intergalactic rogues — the Guardians of the Galaxy. As first reported by EW.com, the official Disney Parks Blog has debuted a sneak video peek of what will now be known as “Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!” From the looks of these debut images and accompanying clip of a model of the finished product, the free-fall ride will now look like a comic-book power plant called “The Collector’s Fortress,” and will, per the site, feature retro music from the Guardians soundtrack.
Looks like another Disney attraction is joining its sizeable graveyard of defunct rides. Expect to see similarly super-sized lines in January 2017 when Disney California Adventure’s Twilight Zone Tower of Terror elevator drop gets a Marvel-ously out of this world makeover to become Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout. The details of this new ride were revealed at Comic Con International in July via the below video, which promises parkgoers an “immersive, exciting experience” set in the outer reaches of the MCU’s galaxy, where the titular Guardians–Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista) and the dynamic duo Groot and Rocket (Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper)–dwell.
Director took a break from filming the Marvel sequel in Atlanta this weekend to host a live Facebook chat in which he responded to fan questions and revealed some interesting tidbits about the next chapter in the Star-Lord saga.
