Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Is Coming To Comic-Con 2016

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 Director James Gunn

In just over a month (as of this writing), the entertainment world will have their eyes on the city of San Diego, where the famed Comic-Con International takes place. Anyone with even a passing interest in the event knows that far more than just comics are covered there. Especially with the recent boom of geek-friendly blockbusters taking over Hollywood, SDCC has become a hub of information concerning the latest big studio tentpoles, starting up the hype train sometimes a year in advance to get the crowds excited and generate buzz.

While 20th Century Fox is sitting Comic-Con 2016 out, there will still be plenty of films putting together panels for Hall H attendees to see. It's already been confirmed that Warner Bros./DC Entertainment's Suicide Squad will have a major presence at the event, as will Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange. Today, fans learned that at least one other MCU franchise - the Guardians of the Galaxy - will also be on hand.

Posting a video on his Facebook page (watch it below) to commemorate Chris Pratt wrapping shooting on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, director James Gunn announced that his latest film will be at San Diego this year to showcase what they've been working on since February. Gunn, Pratt, and a collection of other unidentified Guardians players (most likely Pratt's co-stars) will take to the stage and hopefully bring the house down with an eye-catching sizzle reel.

In addition, Gunn tweeted tonight that principal photography on Vol. 2 has now concluded, thanking his cast and crew for all their efforts:
