Michelle Yeoh, who played Aleta Ogord in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and currently stars in Crazy Rich Asians, expressed her surprise and genuine horror at James Gunn’s firing by Disney.
Michelle Yeoh recently spoke with Yahoo! Movies UK to express her shock and confusion at James Gunn’s treatment by Disney. After playing Aleta Ogord in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 and having first hand experienced with the beleaguered director, Yeoh says shes “shocked” and “horrified” that comments Gunn had made in the well into the past would affect his current standing with Disney – especially since the comments were made well before he was under their employment. In a quote, she endorses Gunn’s upstanding character and expresses her confusion.
“Incredible filmmaker and human being…I was shocked, horrified that we can allow something like that to happen…I don’t understand at all. It’s so unnecessary, what good does it do?”
There are many, most notably Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 co-star Dave Bautista, that stand by James Gunn and have been openly vocal and openly critical of The House of Mouse. Sadly, the situation has deteriorated to the point where Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been put on indefinite hold and the fate of the Guardians may be changing pending Avengers 4 reshoots.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is now available on home video.

Many of these same characters have appeared in Avengers: Infinity War and are expected to return for its sequel and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
