It’s fair to say that there would be no Guardians of the Galaxy — at least, not as we now know it — without James Gunn. He’s directed all three films, and he’s either written or co-written all three screenplays. Even controversy wasn’t able to keep him away from the series: Gunn was fired from Vol. 3 in July 2018 after some of his old tweets raised a furor, but he was reinstated to the project 10 months later. Through it all, he had the full support of the Guardians cast. Chris Pratt definitely considers himself to be a Gunn fan, and he spoke to us about his relationship with the director through the franchise’s films.
