And here is the reply by Gunn that’s really applying the pressure to this rumor.
Really? You’ll be so close. I might have to come see you. https://t.co/LbqvjJ46Vg

While it may look pretty obvious, there is still no official word as to if the cast and crew of both films will be at the convention and in what capacity. For now, this is all fans have to go by. But when you take a picture of a blockbuster movie that you’re directing and ask the question if you’re going to be at a convention that the movie is advertising, it’s a solid sign that you’ll be there.
There are also speculations that Marvel may be planning something really big this year. Consider this, here is what Kevin Feige had to say regarding their absence from SDCC 2015:
“It was just timing. We had done that [media] event in October, when we announced so much. Everyone knows what we’re doing over the next few years. I really have a belief: If you can’t go to Comic-Con and overdeliver, then don’t go.”
Well there you have it. Either go big or go home, and it looks like Marvel may be going big.
