RE-HIRE JAMES GUNN

I'm smart enough to know this most likely won't change anything but hopefully, this could get Disney to realize the mistake they made and not do it again in the future. I agree on the point that if people say a bunch of stupid shit while working for a studio, the studio has full right to fire him over the possible controversy. This situation is very different though as he made these jokes years before he was working for Disney and also the fact that they were jokes. I agree with most, including Gunn himself that the jokes were shitty and un-funny but they were still jokes, it wasn't an opinion or a statement, it was just a bad attempt at being funny. The other thing is if you do this to Gunn you have to do it for all the other directors who have said some crappy joke sometime in their life, which is all of them, cause I doubt there's one human on this planet who hasn't made a shitty joke once or twice in there life. If Marvel would come to their senses and re-hire Gunn that would be great but if all we can do is have proof by your signatures that Disney made a mistake i would still count that as a win. Thanks

Marvel, we want a 'The Winter Soldier' movie!

We’ve all seen the Marvel movies.  And we all know that ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is one of the best Marvel movies ever.  And what makes it so good? Not only the action, the story, lack of jokes,  and a long etc.  What makes it great is one of the best chars in the MCU:  Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier.  Played by the outstanding actor Sebastian Stan, he brings to life one of the most complex characters and does it in a perfect way.   I think there’s a lot that we still haven’t seen of Bucky Barnes, and we want to see a lot more.  What about the whole process after he fell off the train, the transformation from Bucky Barnes to The Winter Soldier, his old missions, what about new missions?   Sure we see some of that in Civil War, but I’m pretty sure that in 70 years as Hydra’s puppet he had a lot of stories and we would like to see them all.   Sebastian Stan mentioned the possibility of a Winter Soldier movie, but we the fans have to show Marvel that we want it.  AND it would be brilliant if we can have the Russo brothers as Directors! So here’s your opportunity, sign this petition and let’s see if we manage to show Marvel and Disney what we really want.   Invite everybody to sign this petition. United We Stand!

Loki returning in Avengers 4 Alive and not just a flashback

To make sure Marvel Studios knows how popular Loki is and ensure that he comes back in the next film (spoilers for infinity war) that he is alive and back not only as a flashback, but returns fully alive

Bring Back James Gunn For Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3.

On July 20, 2018, James Gunn was fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 due to tweets that he made back in 2009 that he apologized for. I believe in second chances, and think that Gunn deserves one, since he created two masterpieces in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In addition to being brought back for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3, I would like it if Marvel would have him as overseer for all of Marvel’s Cosmic movies

Bring Wakanda Series (from Black Panther) to Netflix

February 16, 2018, marked the release of the highly anticipated Black Panther motion picture with rave reviews: “Creates wonder with great flair and feeling partly through something Hollywood rarely dreams of anymore” - The New York Times “A masterpiece” - The Grio "Joyous game changer for Marvel" – Vox According to Forbes.com, Black Panther ranks number 4 in Fandango's top pre-sales of all time beating out the Hunger Games films and coming behind the Star Wars films and the box office numbers continue to grow. Netflix has a track record of creating interesting Marvel series which include: Luke Cage Daredevil Jessica Jones Iron Fist The Defenders The Punisher Telling the back story of Wakanda would be a game changer. How did Wakanda become the most technologically advanced country on Earth? From the technology to the artistry coupled with the rich African traditions, the fans demand more. The Black Panther fanbase would love to see a Wakanda Series on Netflix. This series would expand the depth of the Marvel universe and we feel Marvel/Disney would enjoy creating and adapting these stories as much as we would love watching them. Do you agree? If so, then sign and share this petition. #WakandaSeries

Renew Marvel's Inhumans for a second season (via a "soft reboot" with a new showrunner!!)

(Edit 1: People seem to have missed the point of the petition. The point is not to completely defend the failed series but to let the producers know that we, the fans, deserve a proper Inhumans show and the characters shouldn't be wasted for life with a cancellation and all that is only possible through a renewal. Simple as that. Because once gone, they're gone. Better to give them a second chance now when it is hurting.) Hey guys! As we all know that in late 2017, Marvel TV finally launched one of their most ambitious projects to date: Inhumans. Now, readers of the comic books know of the Inhuman lore, it's deep roots into the Marvel Universe and the mythology of the Inhuman race which is perfectly suitable for a big-budget TV show and we did get our wishes fulfilled. We finally had a show about the Inhumans with all of our favorite characters coming to life on the small screen, with the first 2 episodes even being shot in IMAX. But, we all know how it actually went down. The theatric release grossed only $3.5 million worldwide in IMAX and the show was ravaged from the beginning to end, earning less than stellar reviews and reception in terms of viewership ratings. BUT, WAS INHUMANS REALLY THAT BAD? NO. It was not. Sure, the show had it's fair share of problems, namely: Fast tracking the show: The first 2 episodes were shot in 20 days!!! That too, with those heavy IMAX cameras. Just imagine! Lower Budget and less than stellar CGI effects: Since IMAX had made an investment in the show, not much money was poured in later on and clearly, the show had less than desired special effects and lacked the feel of a MCU-level show. All of this did, indeed, hurt the show. But, THAT doesn't mean that the show deserved a 10% rating on Rotten Tomatoes or the ridiculous hate people have for the show. (continued below) The show had a decent story while every actor involved gave the best he/she could. Their performances are noteworthy and every problem about which the people complained was eventually solved or was a major plot point by the finale (Maximus' "pure" intentions were later revealed to be for his own, the monarch system's flaws were also acknowledged, Black Bolt's less-than-inspired decisions were tackled head-on and so on). Hell, most of the people didn't even watch past episode 1 and jumped on the hate bandwagon. And for all the haters wanting this to be canceled, they seem to forget as to how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. improved after the initial episodes and is currently one of the best, if not THE best, comic book shows on air.  Further, once gone, these characters will never EVER return and that seems to me like such a waste. Instead, they should give the show another chance, maybe with a shorter run with a higher budget and maybe with a NEW SHOWRUNNER as some of the people who hated Iron Fist and Scott Buck just transferred that hate for him (maybe unconsciously) on this show as well and for the fact that he may, INDEED, not be the right person to handle the Inhuman mythos. Plus, we really deserve that cliffhanger to be resolved and properly explained in a soft reboot through season 2. Final words: So, in a gist, all I'm saying is we deserve a proper Inhumans show, which the first season was definitely not. Even Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did justice to Inhumans and surely, ABC needs to only give home to Inhumans for a year and then it can move on to the Disney streaming site in 2019.  Please sign the petition to show your support for the show, even if you didn't like the adaption in hopes for a better second round. Thank you. (Edit 2: Wow. Just see the reception this petition is getting on social media. Such hate. I just request them to see past the mistakes already committed and look to comic books in hopes of inspiration for a second season. #renewinhumans)  Tweet this to Marvel and ABC to let them hear your voice!! Please, all the people who hate the show or hate me for petitioning for the show are requested politely to stay away to avoid unnecessary fights and harassment. We get it. You don't like it. So, just ignore us.

Marvel Studios: Remove James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy movie

This year, Marvel released The Avengers, written and directed by Joss Whedon--a man who has been honored by the National Organization for Women as one of their Men on the Frontlines. Any reader of comics or viewer of superhero movies knows that the portrayal of women is often over-sexualized with their roles minimized, but many writers and directors have been taking steps to portray women as people, rather than objects. However, Marvel’s upcoming film, Guardians of the Galaxy, is slated to be written and directed by James Gunn--a man whose relationship to female characters is troubling at best. In 2011, James Gunn wrote commentary on “The 50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With”. While there is no problem with discussing, fantasizing, or even enjoying the sexualization of comic book characters, the manner in which James Gunn discussed female characters speaks to a deeply disturbing mindset that has no place in powerful hands. While the article has been removed from Gunn’s personal website, it is still viewable on Google Cache and the words from this man are still available to be seen. [On Emma Frost] For those men who love rude bitches, the White Queen is number one.[On Black Widow] Natasha Romanova is the highest debut on the list, and, considering she’s fucked half the men in the Marvel Universe, it’s much deserved. (Please note that this is factually incorrect)[on Elektra] Maybe she’s like carrying one of those little mini-fans, only a mini-fan who will give you a really terrific, Ninja-trained blow job.[On Dazzler] Disco Dazzler, Rave Dazzler, and Punk Rock Dazzler, they all have one thing in common – a friggin’ GREAT vagina.[On Kitty Pryde] @KittyPryde actually wrote me on Twitter after posting the nominees for heroes you most want to have sex with. I wrote her back, but neglected to mention that I wanted to anally do her[On Tigra] For thirty-plus years Tigra has been consistently poorly-written, which means you’d probably have an easy time talking your way into her pants.  [On Spider-Woman] I finish on her face to help block out the painful memories. There. That’s better. I love you, Jessica.Only his comments on Marvel Women have been included here, but he speaks on other characters (male and female) with a tone that is derogatory, homophobic, and downright misogynist. As the director and writer of a major film, sure to be seen by millions, the man is a creator of culture. At a time when Marvel has shown interest in developing female characters and building a female audience as seen with the launch of Captain Marvel and Fearless Defenders, an association with James Gunn will only serve to set the company back in its progress. The signers of this petition urge Marvel to cut ties with Gunn and find a new director who has respect for women.

Save Marvel Heroes!

So Disney has decided to shut down Marvel Heroes at years end, which is pretty surprising since the Game has won awards and puts up relatively strong numbers on Steam's Player Count. I don't think they Understand the wide appeal this game has for casual and hardcore gamers, as well as fans of the IP.As gamers, we are not tone-deaf to the issues regarding Upper Management, and quality of life for employees. While these are not issues to be taken lightly, pulling the plug on such a unique experience in the Marvel universe cannot be worth throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Perhaps buying the assets from Gazillion is possible, or putting the project on hiatus while the company restructures. Let's just tell Disney we are interested in seeing this game continue, maybe with a stronger investment, and some better leadership lest we end up with another property in the hands of EA. The community for this game exists, displaced by a series of poor decisions and bad development ideas. Letting Disney and Marvel know that we are willing to keep this investment going might be enough to save the game we love, and maybe even the studio that worked so hard for the last 5 years to give it to us.

Emergency: Tell @Disney Not to Re-Hire James Gunn!

Friday afternoon, James Gunn, the writer-director of the blockbuster comic book movie series, The Guardians of the Galaxy, was fired by Disney for hosting a large body of commentary dedicated to pedophilia (and worse). Far-right social conservative, but someone who lives and works among those in Hollywood, Ben Shapiro, quickly took to Gunn's defense. (Presumably, reciprocating for Gunn coming to Shapiro's defense just days prior.) Gunn is accused of not just making pedophilistic jokes, but writing over 10,000 comments on Twitter and an entire body of work on his personal blog, of the course of years, that he scrubbed off the internet Friday morning. Now, fans and Shapiro are trying to call Disney out. They believe Disney, which may have additional evidence, made the wrong decision. They want Disney to re-hire Gunn and restore him to a role where he is working with children and making a children's movie. Worse, Shapiro's piece is being used in Hollywood union halls and executive offices to suggest that Gunn's firing was only to "appease the Trumpists" and that conservatives actually protest the firing. Are you a conservative standing with Gunn and Shapiro against children?  This is dangerous.  We believe this is an error. Please petition and call Disney and Marvel and tell them NOT TO RE-HIRE JAMES GUNN. Please tweet this everywhere until Disney puts out a statement reaffirming their prudent decision.
