抬頭「挺兄」!西恩岡恩打破沈默,回應迪士尼開除胞兄:詹姆斯岡恩事件

由於近十年前在網路上發表、涉及戀童與性侵的冒犯性玩笑,身兼《星際異攻隊》系列導演與編劇的 : 詹姆斯岡恩 (James Gunn) 在日前遭到了 Marvel 母公司迪士尼的開除,目前已進入前製作業的《星際異攻隊3》(Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3) 也落入了前景不明的狀態。毫無疑問地,迪士尼的這次決定在業界與廣大的粉絲群體中投下了一顆震撼彈,而身為詹姆斯的胞弟,稍早,在本系列電影裡同樣付出了大量心血的 : 西恩岡恩 (Sean Gunn) 也打破沉默,在 Instagram 上發表了自己對此事的回應。

抬頭「挺兄」

在電影裡,西恩飾演破壞者 (Ravagers) 的大副克雷林 (Kraglin) ,也為火箭浣熊 (Rocket Raccoon) 等大量動畫角色擔任動態捕捉。提起哥哥詹姆斯這些年來的經歷,他在貼文裡如此寫道:

同樣在《 星際異攻隊 》系列付出心力, 西恩岡恩 出面挺兄: 詹姆斯岡恩 。

不需明言,我是愛著我的哥哥、也支持我的哥哥詹姆斯的

我對他的善良、大方,以及他對生命裡所有人的同理心感到非常驕傲。打從孩提時代起,他的欲望 (或天命) 就已經顯而易見,他想成為一名藝術家,他想講述各種故事,也想透過漫畫、電影與他的樂團找到屬於自己的聲音。在尋找那股聲音的過程中,他的掙扎有時是笨重、誤入歧途,或是徹底愚蠢的,有時則非常地美妙、動人,而逗趣。

自從他在6年前將整個人生奉獻給《星際異攻隊》系列電影與 Marvel 電影世界觀之後,我看到他將這股聲音導引至自己的作品之中,也看到他開始出現轉變,不再是過往那個胡謅各種事情、只為了驚世駭俗的傢伙。

我從最近的距離看到,他從憂心自己會為了更廣大的受眾而『磨去稜角』,到了解這樣的『稜角』並不像過往認為的那般有用、自己在講述故事方面其實有著更加優秀的天賦;我也看到他的心胸變得更加廣闊,更勝過往那個以為自己需要透過骯髒、冒犯的玩笑才能鶴立雞群的傢伙 (隨便你們怎麼稱呼那些東西──我不覺得他的那些粗鄙式笑話是他講過最好笑的笑話,老媽也不覺得)。而最棒的部份在於,我哥哥的這般轉變也反映在銀河守衛者 (Guardians of the Galaxy) 成員們所經歷的事物上。

我曾多次聽到我哥哥說,當奎爾 (Quill) 用『這是我們好好在乎一次的機會』集結整支隊伍時──好好在乎一次,這正是他自己需要聽到的信心喊話。

《星際異攻隊》系列電影之所以能讓整個劇組享受到如此充滿回饋的經驗,這正是理由之一。我們非常努力地將自己投身於一部高成本的超級英雄電影,而它的核心是非常私密的。這是一種贈禮,而這也是它如此出色的理由。附帶一提,這並不是什麼新資訊,這些都是詹姆斯在各種訪談裡用更多細節、更有表現張力的方式解釋過許多次的東西。這不是我現在才編出來的,它一直都是這整段故事的一部分。

所以,我猜想這就是粉絲們不斷欣賞、並且喜歡《星際異攻隊》系列電影的理由,不只是因為這部電影的製作者過往曾是某種程度上的混蛋,也是因為,由於有過這樣的經歷,它們到頭來成為了一系列談論尋找最優異自我的電影。努力投身於這系列電影讓我的哥哥變成了一位更優異的人,也同樣讓我變成了更優異的人,我永遠都會對此感到驕傲。謹上

It goes without saying that I love and support my brother James and I’m quite proud of how kind, generous, and compassionate he is with all the people in his life. Since he was a kid, it was clear he had a desire (maybe destiny) to be an artist, tell stories, find his voice through comics, films, his band. The struggle to find that voice was sometimes clunky, misguided, or downright stupid, and sometimes wonderful, moving, and hilarious. Since devoting his entire life to the Guardians movies and MCU six years ago, I’ve seen him channel that voice into his work and seen him transform from the guy who made up things to shock people. I saw firsthand as he went from worrying about “softening his edge” for a larger audience to realizing that this “edge” wasn’t as useful of a tool as he thought it was. That his gift for storytelling was something better. I saw that he was more open-hearted than the guy who thought he needed to get a rise out of people by making nasty or offensive jokes (or whatever you choose to call them—I don’t think his bluer material was ever his funniest and neither does Mom). And the best part is, this change in my brother was reflected in the change that the Guardians go through. I’ve heard my brother say many times that when Quill rallies the team with “this is our chance to give a shit”—to care—that it’s the pep talk he himself needed to hear. It’s part of what made working on the Guardians movies such a rewarding experience for the cast. We managed to find ourselves involved in a big-budget superhero movie that was, at its core, deeply personal. That’s a gift. And that’s why it’s good. This isn’t new information, by the way. It’s all stuff that James has explained many times in interviews, in more detail and more eloquently. It’s not some new spin. It’s always been part of this story. So I guess my hope is that fans continue to watch and appreciate the Guardians movies, not despite the fact that the filmmaker used to be kind of a jackass, but because of it. They are, after all, movies about discovering your best self. Working on those movies made my brother a better person, and they made me one too. I’ll always be proud of that. Peace.
