Neither Disney nor Marvel Studios has announced anything official when it comes to James Gunn's inevitable replacement, but one would assume that he/she will want to tinker with the script.

After the "Guardians of the Galaxy" cast released a statement supporting fired director James Gunn, Dave Bautista, who plays Drax in the franchise, has shared his personal thoughts on the matter and called the situation "pretty nauseating".

Gunn was let go from future "Guardians" projects after old tweets that made jokes of pedophilia and rape were unearthed and circulated on the Internet.

The cast of Guardians of the Galaxy is united in its support of director James Gunn, who was sacked last month after offensive tweets dating back to 2009 resurfaced online.

The actor continued: 'Its also pretty nauseating to work for someone who'd empower a smear campaign by fascists. Gunn was sacked by Disney the same day that a campaign launched by the alt-right troll Mike Cernovich resurfaced years-old, offensive jokes Gunn had made on Twitter, about rape and pedophilia.

He also said that he would do what he was "legally obligated" to do for the third film, but "Guardians" without Gunn was not what he signed up for. "That's just how I feel". "This is bullsh-t. James is one of the kindest, most decent people I've met".

Beijing , however, agreed not to increase purchases of Iranian crude, said the officials who spoke on condition of anonymity. United States officials are now travelling the world in a dramatic effort to stop other countries from buying Iranian oil.

Kurt Russell, who appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, has also recently spoken out in Gunn's favour.

"It's sad. But it's a part of our fabric now, and I get it", Russell told Variety.

Disney has yet to say who will direct Vol. 3, but Variety reports it's unlikely they'll rehire Gunn.

'He has a wonderful heart and a wonderful mind.

It comes after Dave's former Guardian co-star, Kurt Russell, expressed his support for Gunn and said people are now "a little too sensitive".

He added that he hopes Gunn is forgiven.
