James was fired from the sequel earlier this year after old tweets were uncovered in which he joked about paedophilia and rape years before he was hired by Disney to make the first Guardians of the Galaxy.
He has publicly apologised, saying he’s a “very, very different” person now and has “regretted [the jokes] for many years since”.

Previously, Dave Bautista (Drax) threatened to quit the movie if Marvel doesn’t use James’ finished script.
It was later reported that Disney was indeed planning on using the same screenplay from James, although Disney, Marvel and reps for the director declined to comment at the time.
After James was fired, the Guardians cast then released a joint statement standing behind him, with Chris Pratt saying that he’d “love to see him reinstated as director”.
