‘Suicide Squad’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3’ Release Dates Will Not Be Delayed


As the coronavirus pandemic continues, many films have postponed their release dates.

James Gunn, director of "Suicide Squad" and "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3," wants fans to know that his films will be arriving on time.

The director was on Twitter this past weekend, answering fan's questions. He even shared that "Suicide Squad" will still be premiering on August 6, 2021.

Gunn told his fans that his team is ahead of schedule. He tweeted, "We were extremely fortunate to wrap shooting & set up editing from our homes (due to a post-production team & studio with foresight) before quarantine."

The director also reassured fans that "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" is not changing anything due to the global pandemic. Disney has not announced a release date for the movie.

"Right now, the plans with Vol 3 are also exactly the same as they were before coronavirus," the director tweeted.

Although fans received great news, Gunn said people might not see any trailers for now.

Many movies have been postponed to a later date due to the coronavirus. Sony Pictures is changing around and postponing many film release dates as a result of the global coronavirus outbreak.

With many states under stay-at-home or shelter-in-place orders, movie theaters have closed their doors to prevent the spread of the novel virus.

In response, Sony has a new release schedule that reveals that fans will be waiting a lot longer for some highly-anticipated films than previously thought. In fact, many buzzed-about films are scrapping 2020 premieres and opting for a “safe” release in 2021.
