The cast of the previous Guardians of the Galaxy films has already made it clear that they are standing with James Gunn after the director was fired from the third movie. Not surprisingly, Michelle Yeoh is one of them and she says she is "horrified" that Disney and Marvel are making "a big fuss" about something that happened in the past.

The Crazy Rich Asians star recently spoke to Yahoo News UK about Gunn's firing. Yeoh, who played Aleta Ogord in Vol. 2, stated that she couldn't believe the director had to be sacked because of past errors.

"I was shocked, horrified that we can allow something like that to happen. You're talking about things that he said in the archives. If he had said it yesterday, or today, or something like this then you can make a big fuss but why dig up something now? I don't understand at all. It's so unnecessary, what good does it do?"

Yeoh isn't the only one who feels that the studios are overreacting. Dave Bautista has repeatedly slammed Disney for removing Gunn from Vol. 3. Unfortunately, this has led to speculations that Bautista's character Drax might be written out of the sequel as well. Nevertheless, the cast and crew of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies continue to defend Gunn.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been put on hold following Gunn's removal. Both Disney and Marvel are currently looking for a new director who could take over in bringing Gunn's screenplay to the big screen.
