It might sound hilarious, but it looks like Marvel fans have found a new director to replace James Gunn on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 – Jimmy Gunbergo a mustachioed version of the original Guardians of the Galaxy director.

Last month, Hollywood was shocked to find Gunn being fired from the franchise he built by himself. Disney decided to separate ways with the director when an alt-right supporter decided to create a smear campaign by digging up offensive and inappropriate tweets that Gunn made fourteen years ago. While some fans have sided with Disney, a group of others, including a long list of celebrities and the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy have come to support the Marvel director, asking the Mickey Mouse House to reinstate Gunn as director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Though it's pretty unclear whether or not Marvel will bring back Gunn for the film, fans continue to rally for the director, and now it looks like some have come up with a great way for Disney to save face and bring the filmmaker back to the franchise – by hiring Jimmy Gunnbergo.

The idea was first spotted in Reddit where a fake headline caught fans' eyes: "Marvel Hires First-Time Filmmaker Jimmy Gunnbergo To Direct Guardians 3." The picture on the fake article has a photoshopped James Gunn on it, one with a grand walrus mustache.

Though it's obviously a joke, it's definitely loveable how fans are trying to find ways to weasel Gunn back to the Marvel family. Gunn was the one who turned an obscure comic book team like the Guardians into a household name in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and at one point, Marvel had the director building the studio's Cosmic Universe. It's definitely a shame that a smear campaign would bring him down this way, especially since the director apologized for the tweets years before it was brought back again and he's promised that he's changed since then. Such a shame indeed.

Marvel's latest film, Avengers: Infinity War, is currently available on digital HD.
