"I will do what I'm legally obligated to do but @Guardians without @JamesGunn is not what I signed up for. GOTG w/o @JamesGunn just isn't GOTG. It's also pretty nauseating to work for someone who'd empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis. That's just how I feel," the actor had replied to fan who asked him whether he will be ok being part of the franchise without Gunn. Disney recently reconfirmed its decision to let go of the filmmaker. Gunn was fired from directing the third film in the franchise after a series of old offensive tweets made by the filmmaker resurfaced on social media.
