Late last night Director James Gunn, who directed last year's Guardians of the Galaxy movie, was spotted on facebook commenting that Marvel will be not be present at this year's San Diego Comic Con. When a fan asked him about Marvel's presence for this year's San Diego Comic Con, he said:
“I’m not sure. Marvel isn’t going so I’m not sure I will either.”
He later on went on to say on his twitter to defend his statements, "guys, he could be lying” I have never lied about anything to the fans, ever."
Marvel has been a main staple at San Diego Comic Con for years, and this would be the first time in a long time that Marvel will not attend this year's San Diego Comic Con. Eailer this year Marvel had a press conference announcing the movies Marvel Studios is working on for the coming years. This was a private event that Marvel invited the press, friends, and family for the announcements at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood. With all the announcements Marvel has shown with the upcoming films, it does beg the question if not attending San Diego Comic Con means that there is nothing to show right now.
We have reached out for comment to both James Gunn, and Marvel on this matter. We will update this story once we have a comment, and confirmation of Marvel not attending this year's San Diego Comic Con.
