With the news of the cancellation of the event this week the director of “Guardians of the Galaxy” gave his opinion
One of the people who often draws crowds at Comic-Con is filmmaker James Gunn, who has brought his “Guardians of the Galaxy” films and more to the annual convention. Since the announcement was dated this week, Gunn offered a message of encouragement to fans while expressing his own sadness at the news.
Earlier today, the inevitable news was confirmed that San Diego Comic-Con International has been officially canceled. The annual gathering has become a staple of the convention circuit for comic book makers, and often a place where film studios, TV networks, and publishers make major announcements and premiere world trailer premieres to the masses. .
It's the right thing to do, but I'm still sad to hear about #SDCC being cancelled this year. I'll miss all of you. We as creators, studios, and publishers will have to find ways to make it up to you the fans in other ways. ❤️

“It’s the right thing to do, but I’m still saddened to hear that #SDCC was canceled this year,” Gunn tweeted. “I will miss you all. We as creators, studios and publishers will have to find ways to compensate fans in other ways. ”
Many fans responded to Gunn’s tweet by asking for a digital panel or Warner Bros. To release images of their upcoming movie “The Suicide Squad” online when they had done so anyway.
The studio has not made any official announcements one way or the other if they intend to do this, but WB has often been one of the few studios to release the videos and trailers that premiere online on SDCC simultaneously.
