Dave Bautista sets Ultimatum for Disney
Oscar Rendon | August 7th, 2018
Dave Bautista, former WWE Star and current Guardian of the Galaxy has been a vocal force after the firing of director James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Disney quickly and precisely fired Gunn after tweets of his from years ago were brought up and used in a smear campaign against him. Disney acted swiftly and fired him and not everyone has taken to this decision.
After the firing of James Gunn, the cast of GOTG wrote and signed a letter asking Disney to reinstate James Gunn as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. One of Gunn's most vocal supporters is Dave Bautista who plays Drax in the MCU. In the last week, Bautista has gone on record saying that if Disney does not use Gunn's original script for the film that he will ask for his release from his contract with Marvel & Disney. Some fans and critics are worried this kind of action from the actor could affect his film career while others commend his loyalty to James Gunn.
What do you think? Were Disney too quick to fire James Gunn? Is Dave Bautista right in defending his friend and setting an ultimatum? Comment below.
