GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 Director James Gunn Explains Why SDCC Trailer Wasn't Released Online

Marvel Studios stole the show at SDCC this year, but many were disappointed about the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 not being officially released. Now, James Gunn explains why.

San Diego Comic-Con is over for another year, and while Warner Bros./DC did debut new trailers for the likes of Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Black Adam, it's probably fair to say that Marvel Studios stole the show with our first look at Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and a series of massive Phase 5 and 6 announcements.

The first teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 also screened for those in attendance, but, unfortunately, wasn't officially released online afterwards.

Fans of the crew of intergalactic A-holes were understandably disappointed - especially after the glowing reactions - but director James Gunn has now revealed that he had a very good reason for not wanting the general public to see the footage just yet.

Based on this Tweet, it sounds like we may not have to wait too much longer to see the trailer (or a version of it, anyway) for ourselves. A few low-quality frames have since found their way online showing Mantis dancing and a flashback to Rocket Raccoon's past set to The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize," but we won't be sharing it here and it's hardly even worth seeking out, to be honest.

Plot details have been kept mostly under wraps, but we do know that Gamora (Zoe Saldana) will be a big part of the movie, and a report from last year indicated that her relationship with Nebula (Karen Gillan) is going to be the main focus. Of course, this Gamora is a Variant of the original who doesn't know any of her teammates, so we can probably expect a very different dynamic between the "sisters" this time.

Saldana and Gillan will be joined by the returning Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Dave Bautista (Drax), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Sean Gunn (Rocket/Kraglin), Vin Diesel (Groot), and Sylvester Stallone as Stakar Ogord/Starhawk, with Will Poulter on board as Adam Warlock.

Peacemaker actor Chukwudi Iwuji arrived to the Hall H panel in-costume as The High Evolutionary, making his villainous role official.
