The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer that leaked online last week probably won’t get an official release anytime soon.
Disney and Marvel Studios worked extremely hard to remove any traces of the clip from the internet. Trying to find a copy of the trailer that hosted by a torrent site is practically impossible. Unless you’re interested in illegally downloading the video, your chances of seeing it are very slim.
Although fans would love to get their hands on a legitimate copy of the Guardians of the Galaxy Comic-Con trailer, director James Gunn revealed that this probably isn’t going to happen. Marvel might stick it on future home video releases, but this writer wouldn’t suggest holding your breath.
“Zero percent chance, sorry. I know a lot of you have seen the shaky camera footage, but it was made after twelve days of shooting and isn’t a true reflection of the awesomeness we’re trying to create for you,” the director told ComicBook.com.
The Guardians of the Galaxy clip that found its way online last week was taken at the recent D23 expo. While the footage was certainly impressive, apparently Gunn doesn’t feel that it’s a true representation of the film he’s trying to put together.
Filming on the Marvel movie is currently underway overseas. The flick’s cast includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly, and Glenn Close.
Gunn recently added a few new names to the roster. Not only is Vin Diesel on-board to voice Groot in the adaptation, Slither star Gregg Henry recently signed on for the project. It might be a Marvel production, but the director is bringing a number of his frequent collaborators along for the ride.
Are you disappointed that the leaked Guardians of the Galaxy trailer won’t get an official release?
