It's not the only time people will be exposed to MOS. TV spots closer to the film's release will create buzz too and for a lower price. Thus, WB's people don't see much need in spending that much money for one TV spot. At some point someone(s) at WB figured it really isn't worth it to make a Super Bowl spot and thus, for now, they don't bother releasing one for any of their films.

I was at some diplomatic party once. Got to talking to this princess who told me that when it came to Superman, I was missing the point. She told me, "His real strength lay in his generous spirit and sense of what's fair." - King Faraday

He’s much more of a working class superhero, which is why we ended the whole book with the image of a laboring Superman. He’s Everyman operating on a sci–fi Paul Bunyan scale." - Grant Morrison
