ICYMI: The Geeky Movie Trailers of Superbowl 50

Ahhh, the Superbowl… the season finale of The American Football Show. For many of us it means food, beer, and friends. Some of us care about the game, for others its more of a social exercise. But for nearly all of us, the Superbowl has at least one redeeming quality. For no art form so clearly unites us in our delight, confusion, and dismal as that of the Superbowl commercial. Companies pay exorbitant amounts of money for the opportunity to hurl quirky, catchy, or utterly confounding ad campaigns at our expectant faces. Occasionally, in the midst of the Puppy Monkey Babies and Doritos Dogs, Hollywood sympathetically throws something deliciously nerdy in the mix. This year was no exception, as Marvel, Warner Bros, and Fox presented tv spots for their respective franchise’s next big films. Here they are, in case you missed them!

Marvel kicks off Phase Three of their cinematic universe with Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016.

I love how emotional this trailer feels. You can really see that they are setting the stage for an emotional, dramatic journey. Betrayal, trust, and loyalty are all huge themes at play, and the mood is heavy and intense. Marvel does a great job of not overselling it to an audience that seems ready for the ride.

Fox brings us X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27, 2016.

X-Men: Apocalypse | Super Bowl TV Commercial | 20th Century FOX

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible.

Intense and fast paced, this spot does a great job of capturing the larger than life feel of the X-men universe. We get a great look at Psylocke in action, and Charles Xavier explaining through voiceover the threat that humanity faces. Fan favorite Quicksilver and relative newcomer Angel are also featured briefly. As an X-men fan, I’m personally the most excited for this one!

Warner Bros and DC Studios gave us something a little different to promote the latest in their own budding universe. Watch Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor invite you to visit their respective cities in these cute and clever commercials featuring official partner, Turkish Airlines. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will greet moviegoers March 25, 2016.
