Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy star Vin Diesel says Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn is “making the right decisions” as the brand moves forward with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. What he means by that is he believe Marvel made the right choice by reinstating James Gunn as the film’s director.
In the Instagram post, Diesel said:
I had the luxury of seeing [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige and [co-president] Louis [D’Esposito], and it’s amazing to see how sacred the Groot character is to the whole Marvel universe. Shout out to Alan Horn for using his heart to in making the right decisions for Guardians 3.

Marvel Studios Chairman Alan Horn fired Gunn in July after years-old tweets published by the filmmaker resurfaced on social media.
Gunn was reinstated to the franchise in March, following his public apology and reported repeat meetings with Horn.
The finale of Gunn’s Guardians trilogy is arguably the most highly-anticipated Marvel movie now that Avengers: Endgame hit theaters.
