Dave Bautista is staying true by the side of James Gunn. Last month James was fired from the third episode of The Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. In unity the other stars have penned a letter to Disney to keep James in the job.
Dave said the following regarding if James doesn’t get to return.
“Where I’m at right now is that if [Marvel] don’t use that script, then I’m going to ask them to release me from my contract, cut me out or recast me.
“I’d be doing James a disservice if I didn’t.”
We will see in the future how Dave plays this hang against Disney. Yet, he follows it up with, “I don’t think [it] will get him re-hired. But I hope it opens people’s eyes to James’ character.”
Disney has not replied.
