Kevin Feige Hints at When The First ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2′ Trailer Will Be Released

Out of all of the footage shown during their Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Marvel Studios has only released one trailer online publicly, and it’s a shorter version of the Doctor Strange footage that was shown during the film’s actual panel. This was noticeably different than Warner Bros.’ strategy from earlier in the day, who released every piece of footage they showed online quickly afterwards.

Fans were, understandably, upset by the studio’s decision, especially when it comes to a certain trailer that was shown for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, one of the studio’s most anticipated sequels ever, which director James Gunn says won’t be released for some time until the footage is “perfect.”

During a conversation with Collider though, Kevin Feige hinted that fans will only have to wait a few months to see the Guardians trailer, when it possibly premieres with their next theatrical release, Doctor Strange, on November 4th, though he didn’t necessarily confirm that by any means either.

Interestingly enough as well, Feige also revealed that the trailer shown during the Vol. 2 panel isn’t actually the trailer for the movie either, and the first trailer, whenever it is released, will be different than what fans saw in Hall H, similar I imagine to what they did with the Doctor Strange footage.

Like most of the SDCC trailers that are premiered in Hall H though, the Guardians trailer very much had an unfinished quality to it, both in its visual and in its editing and rhythm, so I understand the studio’s decision to keep the trailer to themselves for the time being, as more things are finished and fine tuned. Hopefully though, Feige’s hint at a release in conjunction with Strange ends up coming true.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to hit theatres on May 5th, 2017.
