James Gunn Weighs In On Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 Casting Rumors

"Guardians of the Galaxy" and "The Suicide Squad" director James Gunn is understandably a pretty busy man, but his hectic schedule always seems to have a few spare minutes for one extracurricular activity: Addressing news, rumors and comments about his work on Twitter. He has been known to use the forum for things like clarifying his remarks on Martin Scorsese, as well as giving fans little teases about "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3," and addressing rumors about his strange casting quirks. However, he's also been known to use Twitter to set the record straight about online rumors. 

The time has now come for Gunn to once again set loose upon the Twitterverse, and this time, he has something to say about some extremely strange ideas the internet has about the cast of his upcoming movie. Let's see what James Gunn has to say about these "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" casting rumors.

James Gunn doesn't appreciate Google's Guardians 3 cast list

James Gunn has turned his eye on Google, and noticed that many of the "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" cast members that the search engine turns up are ones that Gunn hasn't actually, you know, cast in the movie.. 

"Someone is having fun on Google movies with the cast of #GotGVol3. (Note: Of these folks only Will is confirmed as in the movie)," the director wrote on Twitter

The image accompanying the tweet is a screenshot of the some of the people Google lists as part of the movie's cast. These include certified MCU actors Chris Hemsworth (as Thor Odinson, naturally) and Seth Green (who voices Howard the Duck) — as well as Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, and Idris Elba, who all appear in the Gunn-directed DCEU movie "The Suicide Squad." Perhaps the strangest addition to the list is actor and internet personality King Bach, who, it turns out, finds the whole thing just as strange as Gunn. "Yeah @KingBach is the one who showed me this," the director elaborated in another tweet.

As another user points out in a reply to Gunn's tweet, the reason for the strange cast list is probably the way Google mines its casting information by "finding names in articles the movie is mentioned in." However, as the director himself wonders on another tweet, this poses another question: "Why was King Bach mentioned in articles about Vol 3??"
