Earlier today saw a potential huge rumor hit the net in regards to Luke Skywalker and Star Wars: Episode VII.

Now Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has taken to his Facebook to state his feelings about it as well as people posting spoilers.

Major kudos to Slash Film (and Badass digest and whoever else) for acting like human beings and not publishing the Star Wars spoiler. I unfortunately stumbled across it. Anyone who didn't publish it has won me over big time. I know most sites that published it didn't mean harm, but if you love movies, it'd be honorable if you helped the rest of us love them more, instead of, admittedly probably unintentionally, depriving us of our pleasure.

I love movies. I love being surprised in movies. And call me a dreamer, but I think film journalism should be about more than 'scoops'.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" has a December 18, 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
