The director of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise lost the gig after his old jokes about pedophilia surfaced.
Disney reluctantly fired James Gunn, and the studio is now searching for his replacement.
it’s safe to say Scott Derrickson’s gig as the man behind the “Doctor Strange” films won’t suffer a similar fate even though one of his toxic Tweets is only a few hours old.
Derrickson, like the vast majority of Hollywood denizens, loathes President Donald Trump. That’s crystal clear from his Twitter account, which boasts a hefty 92K-plus followers.
And, like an embarrassingly large sub set of the group, his Trump derangement takes him into some rdark directions.
Take his Saturday afternoon Tweet. The Director, a self-described Christian, goes out of his way to not just slam Trump as a white supremacist but anyone who dares support his policies.
Now, in a sane world Disney, which oversees the Marvel Cinema Universe, might be sad to see one of its directors slam a large group of potential “Doctor Strange 2” patrons. Any MCU film is guaranteed to make money, but these films must earn millions to compensate for their massive budgets and marketing campaigns.
Every ticket sold matters.
Still, Team Disney will likely ignore this missive. Here’s why:
- The target is Trump, remember?
- The mainstream press will ignore this Tweet. So will Hollywood news sites
- Plus, this isn’t his first hate tweet
For Thanksgiving 2017 he shared a Tweet calling American Christianity “racist, greedy and nationalistic.”
Earlier this month, he attacked his fellow Christians anew, saying, “In America, we Christians are not the solution. We are the core problem..”
Derrickson’s most recent Tweet drew plenty of agreement from fellow Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferers. A few fought back, though.
So you’re calling half of America racist? Great strategy movie director!
