Well, since James Gunn has been fired from Disney and now a new director for the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 film must be found. Gunn wasn't just directing GOTG3 but was slated to lead the Marvel Comic Universe (MCU) for the next several years to come. What do I think about this? Eh, I could care less but I'd have to try and I don't care enough to try.

My personal philosophy was "Make Mine Marvel" for many years growing up but I had fallen away from Marvel just before the Disney buyout and since that evil company got its claws in my new philosophy was "Make Mine Marvel… pre-1998). For those of you who still give a flip about the MCU though, don't despair, there are a couple of possible choices for who could follow up James Gunn to lead Marvel films henceforth.

Currently, Taika Waititi is the current front-runner for the moment, but there's a dark horse candidate with a whole lot of heart and a Twitter campaign supporting him. That's right, amidst the clamor of the peanut gallery cries are arising. Cries of "Mel Gibson For Guardians of the Galaxy!"

Gibson actually turned down the role of Odin in the Thor franchise, the role ended up going to Anthony Hopkins. Gibson told Digital Spy that was the only time he had been offered a role in a superhero film.

Gibson has even been suggested as a potential replacement for Dan Harmon at the show Rick & Morty. If you weren't aware, several Hollywood types are disappearing from Twitter and rumors of accounts being scrubbed abound. That said, Harmon's Twitter was scoured and an incredibly disturbing "show" about a psychiatrist named Daryl who rapes babies (yes, that's the entirety of the plot) and the original version of Rick & Morty (Doc and Mharti) was revealed to be primarily several incestuous pedophilia "gags" strung together. In the case of Harmon being ousted, who could be a better potential replacement than Briggs from Lethal Weapon?

Not everybody is as psyched about the potential for the Gibster to take Gunn's seat of course…

Big thanks to Ethan Ralph at The Ralph Retort and Killstream for having the foresight to find someone talented enough and, most importantly, controversy free to bring Marvel into the next decade.

So remember folks, pick the Lethal Weapon <i>not</i> the Gunn.
