When asked on Twitter if he was lying to cover for Marvel, Gunn doubled down:


At the current point in the film cycle, it actually makes sense that Marvel would skip the event this year (and maybe leave room for, say, fellow Disney product Star Wars) – but is it weird for anyone else that we’ve now reached the point where Marvel is skipping Comic Con because of their film schedule? I mean, it’s not bad… but it’s kind of funny.
