Oh, OK! Let's Talk About the Avengers Super Bowl Spot!

Full disclosure here - I'm an Australian. So I'm assuming that the Super Bowl is another food-based holiday where American families huddle around a super-sized bowl filled with puréed food and eat without using any cutlery.

But the best thing to come out of Super Bowl Sunday is this brand new trailer for giant ginger noggined pop culture legend Joss Whedon's upcoming Avengers movie. The original trailer left me a little cold, but I have to admit that this one is pretty awesome. Check it:

Joss Whedon you have the Midas touch. Plus clearly a lot of talented storyboarders, designers and animators at your beck and call. Highlights for me are Hulk, the circular pan around the group including the Hulk, the Hulk, Scarlett Johansson, the Hulk, that shot of Iron Man flying into the lasers, and the Hulk. By the way, did you know they have a Hulk?

For me, this was definitely the winner out of the Super Bowl movie spots. Better than that film where Bruce Willis plays a vintage doll.


  1. This was really exciting. I watched a good chunk of the game, and the only other commercials I remember seeing were Pepsi, Coke, Budweiser, Coke, Pepsi, some other drink, and more drinks.

  2. And if you change "pureed food" to "chicken wings", your Super Bowl description is spot on.

  3. I would have thought the bones were time-wasters!
