New Avengers 2 Trailer To Debut During College Football Playoff
New trailer scheduled to drop on ESPN during National Championship game
Marvel's hotly-anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron previously debuted its first trailer during the hitmaking studio's own Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now, we've learned that the follow-up will be showing up somewhere else entirely - a football game.
Marvel/Disney has confirmed that the second trailer for the superhero team-up epic will premiere during ESPN's broadcast of the College Football Playoff National Championship on January 12th, 2015. No details have been provided as to what point in said broadcast the trailer will actually run. The game will be between #4 ranked Ohio State and #2 ranked Oregon, with both teams boasting a 13-1 record for the season.
In addition, Marvel is also hyping plans to premiere the first full teaser for their other Summer 2015 release, Ant-Man, during the January 6th debut of the ABC miniseries Agent Carter.
He almost fumbled over "Ultron." I love watching non-geeks get pulled into saying the ridiculous stuff we geeks talk about because it's trendy now.
Aaaaannnnnddddd.....cue Hydra leaking this one, too. :)
Seems a strange place to put it. Are they trying to use the trailer to draw attention to the match, because i find it doubtful that a movie as anticipated as the Avengers 2 needs the match to get attention for itself.
I tend to think it's along the lines of the opposite of 'preaching to the choir'. They want to advertise to sections of the movie going public that is likely not into this geek stuff.
I have a feeling the Avengers will be siding with the Ducks!
Is it just me, or have these "trailers for trailers" been getting a lot more common lately?
I can't wait to see it once it's uploaded to the interwebs. The first trailer and the variant were damn good. May can't come fast enough.
