Apparently Marvel Studios won’t be attending San Diego Comic-Con 2015. During a live Q&A on his Facebook, director James Gunn (Guardians Of The Galaxy) was asked if he’ll be attending this year’s SDCC, and he responded with “I’m not sure. Marvel isn’t going so I’m not sure I will either.”
At first you can think ” well this could be just a tease or Gunn is playing us all for fools”, however Gunn later tweeted that he has “never lied about anything to the fans, ever.” Is he actually joking around or is Marvel really not attending Comic-Con?
Marvel made their Phase 3 announcement independently last year, instead of doing it through SDCC (or a different similar event), or perhaps the studio doesn’t want to go up against Warner Bros. and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad at this year’s Comic-Con.
