If the 50th Super Bowl didn’t interest you with its the acton on the field, it may have tickled your fancy with four new videos from Marvel..
The Super Bowl’s commercials and ads have become a big part of the event and this year there was a definite focus on Marvel. Anyone watching would see teasers for Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool. The other video is an… ad? We think? It’s a minute-long video from Coke where Hulk fights Ant-Man over a can of the sugary stuff.
Can we take a moment to point out how bizarre it is for comic book characters to be advertised during one of the world’s largest sporting events? Bizarre, and awesome.
As far as teaser’s go, this one really got us pumped. There’s so much on show here but that split second where Iron Man stops a bullet from the Winter Soldier? Now that’s the kind of comic action we’re glad to see in live action.
The main highlight here is finally seeing Psylocke (played by Olivia Munn) in her full costume finally kicking some ass. As some have pointed out, Psylocke seems to be the only character with a costume that closely resembles the ones from the comics, while everyone else is in darkened, more serious garb.
This isn’t the first time Mr. Anger Issues advertised for foodstuffs, a few years ago he also shilled for Burger King. Hey, Bruce, if you’re in between super science work, we’re sure Stark can lend you some cash.
Deadpool launches this Friday in South Africa. Give this trailer a look as well as read our review on it, written by esteemed guest author Deadpool himself.
