James Gunn loves to mess with the fans, but this time he's in a gift-giving mood.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 directors decided to throw his fans a bone, teasing a big surprise for the Marvel faithful. Gunn tweeted, "We're gonna give you guys something amazing on Sunday. 💥."
As of now anyway, there isn't a Marvel or Disney event planned for the weekend, so it appears this is just something pertaining to Gunn. A few possibilities come to mind. Perhaps with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set to hit DVD soon, he will finally reveal the hidden easter egg from the original Guardians?
Perhaps it is something that will be exclusive to the Blu-ray and DVD release, or maybe it is a tease for Avengers: Infinity War or even Guardians 3?
Guess we'll just have to wait until Sunday to find out!
We’re gonna give you guys something amazing on Sunday. 💥— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) August 3, 2017
