Marvel still hasn’t found a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director to take over for James Gunn, but they’ve approached a few people. One of those people was Adam McKay, director of Anchorman and the upcoming Vice. McKay has some Marvel experience – he worked on the script for Ant-Man, and has now confirmed he was up to direct Inhumans before it became a TV series. But it doesn’t seem like he’ll be taking over the Guardians franchise anytime soon.

As I’m sure you know by now, James Gunn was fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 right before pre-production was set to begin, due to several of his old, highly offensive tweets coming to light. While many urged Disney to give Gunn a second chance, the studio stuck by their decision. As a result, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is on hold indefinitely as Marvel and Disney attempt to find a new director. Who will it be? There’s no shortage of suggestions – Thor: Ragnarok helmer Taika Waititi seems to be a fan-favorite – but we now know at least one filmmaker who was directly approached about the gig. That filmmaker is Adam McKay, who directed Anchorman, The Big Short, and this year’s Dick Cheney biopic Vice.
