The One Super Bowl Commercial I Want to See

Welcome to Super Bowl Sunday, one of the most sacred days of the year in America! The big game will pit the Denver Broncos against the Seattle Seahawks — the No. 1 offense against the No. 1 defense; the irresistible force vs. the immovable object. Who will win? I hope it’s the Broncos, but I won’t be too broken up if it’s the Seahawks, because, without my New York Football Giants playing… who really cares? (Even if it is in the Jints’ home stadium.)

What I do care about is Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Marvel Studios has promised a bombastic ad during the game this evening — I hope the video can deliver. Here is a 16-second teaser… a commercial for the commercial, if you will. Enjoy!

Cap, Widow, Falcon, Nick and the Winter Soldier will all be there when C:TWS opens on April 4.

Did Magneto (Help) Assassinate JFK?

The latest video clip intended to create buzz about next summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past may make a few folks cringe since it tries to link Magneto (Michael Fassbender) to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy — just days after the USA marked the solemn 50th anniversary of the tragedy.

Personally, I don’t think the video crosses the line into bad taste, but I also don’t see any particular reason why it needed to be done — unless the assassination conspiracy ties directly into the plot of the new movie.
