Superbowl 50 Highlights (For Nerds)

Well, Superbowl 50 is over, and the game had quite a bit to offer the comic book fans of the world in the way of comercials for your favorite upcoming movies.

The majority of teasers were for upcoming Marvel films, but I'll start with the exception--the trailer for the new Ninja Turtles movie. I don't have high hopes for it, but it does promise to finally bring some long-time fan favorites to the screen in live action.

Now, on to the many Marvel ads. We saw a couple of spots for Fox's X-men films. One for X-men Apocalypse, which was more of the same things that we've been seeing so far:

Then, we got a great snarky teaser from Deadpool tailored to the occasion of the Superbowl. At the end Deadpool remidns us all that we'll see him on Friday. Admit it. If you're reading this, you probably will see him on Friday.

Deadpool Superbowl ad:

The Avengers movies had a good showing. There was a short "Civil War" ad that shows us a few cool things like Tony Stark's awesome bulletproof gloves:

Then there was our favorite ad: the Ant-man vs Hulk Coca-Cola comercial. It was very well-done comercial that would have looked at home in the middle of an Avengers film. If you haven't seen this already, be sure to check it out:

Now that the game is over, get ready for a year of great superhero films--starting with Deadpool this Friday.
