Guardians of the Galaxy 3 director James Gunn took to Twitter to explain why the film’s release date wasn’t revealed at San Diego Comic-Con during the Marvel Studios panel this weekend.
James Gunn confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is definitely on Marvel Studios’ upcoming slate of movies, but he’s still hard at work on another comic book property. The director responded to a fan on Twitter and wrote there wasn’t an update on the Guardians because he’s finishing The Suicide Squad first for Warner Brothers and the DC Extended Universe. Check out James Gunn’s tweet below.
Sorry to disappoint. Guardians Vol. 3 IS happening, but I am finishing The Suicide Squad first. ❤️ https://t.co/gFodDqiDvl

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 has had a rocky road in terms of its production schedule over the course of the past year. James Gunn was famously dismissed from the project after a series of controversial tweets were uncovered over ten years ago. After Gunn was fired, the filmmaker accepted the directing gig for the next iteration of the Suicide Squad.
Shortly afterwards, Marvel Studios rehired James Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 and the rest was simply history. Gunn is the first director to ever work on comic book movies for Marvel and DC at the same time.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to star Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Sean Gunn.

New Spider-Man: Far From Home concept art reveals alternate costume designs for Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio.
Marvel fans have been clamoring to see Mysterio in a live-action film ever since the release of Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man movie. Nearly two decades later, Mysterio finally made his way into a Spider-Man film with the release of Marvel Studios and Sony's Far From Home, with Jake Gyllenhaal portraying the classic Spidey foe.
While the writers incorporated elements of previous Marvel Studios films for the origin of Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio, this take on the character was largely faithful to the source material, especially in terms of the villain's costume design. However, new concept illustrations reveal alternate designs for Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio suit were considered, some of which are notably different from the comic book outfit with entirely different color schemes.
