Despite the shaky bootleg postings of the D23 footage of James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy that started popping up across the Internet, Gunn has come out and publicly said that the footage shown at those two events will never be officially released to the Internet. Why?
Zero percent chance, sorry! I know a lot of you have seen the shaky camera footage, but it was made after 12 days if shooting and isn’t a true reflection of the awesomeness we’re trying to create for you.
So Gunn doesn’t feel it reflects the work he’s done since that first twelve days. For frak’s sake James, we all know that, but to hold out on those unable to get to D23 or SDCC 2013 is not cool. Just that little tidbit we got was awesome, why cut the rest of us out of the loop?
If the cat is out of the bag anyways why not feed it, pet it, and love it to death? It always worked for Bugs Bunny Yeti monsters. If anything, that footage would spark more interest for your release of the first official trailer. Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t hit theater screens until August 1st, 2014 so there’s still months until we get that trailer.
Here’s a copy of that shaky bootleg that has managed to slip by the Disney lawyers. What do you think about Gunn’s move on not releasing the footage?
