It looks like there could possibly be a bit more evidence to support the theory that Disney might be un-cancelling Gina Carano.

Disney has recently been putting out it’s Emmy consideration materials for their nomination push and on the poster for “The Mandalorian” they list Carano along with many of the other characters from the show.

Of course, one could argue that they were listing everyone they thought they could nominate, however, they didn’t have to put her on the poster if they truly wanted to distance themselves.

Here’s the poster in question:

You will see that it does indeed list a lot of people from the show and Disney is casting a wide net, however, they didn’t have to include her, but it could just be Disney trying to appease people and saying “oh we didn’t exclude her.”

Nominees include:

Pedro Pascal is listed for Lead Actor.

Giancarlo Esposito and Temeura Morrison are listed as Best Supporting Actor. While Gina Carano is listed as Best Supporting Actress. Several others are listed in the “Guest Actors” category including: Rosario Dawson, Bill Burr, Katee Sackhoff , Carl Weathers, Ming-Na Wen, and even Mark Hamill among others.

Nominees for the next awards ceremony will be announced on July 13.

This comes after Disney walked back the decision to not air Carano’s ‘Running Wild’ episode on Disney+. 

She was fired from ‘The Mandalorian’ for an arguably “controversial” tweet about the Holocaust that even cause Forbes to question the decision.  Meanwhile other actors on the show are allowed to make similar, politically charged, statements and slams against parties they don’t agree with.

It’s just odd. If someone is fired and cancelled you usually don’t promote them on your Emmy consideration list. It does fit with the rumors we are hearing backchannel about Disney possibly trying to get Gina Carano back.  They did it with James Gunn before so it isn’t unprecedented.

We shall see.
