James Gunn Says SDCC Will Have New Technology to Prevent Piracy

It seems San Diego's Comic-Con International will have new measures in place this year to prevent pirates from leaking convention-exclusive content.

Addressing a fan on his Facebook page, director James Gunn revealed that some kind of "technology" will be used to stop piracy at the convention:

The exact technology that'll be used to block the pirates hasn't been revealed, but as ComicsAlliance speculates, SDCC could be testing out Apple's new patent that allows the company to turn off a user's cellphone camera at any time.

Gunn's vigilance in stopping pirates makes sense, considering the news that SDCC will screen never-before-seen footage from his "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2."

Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
