It doesn't make sense, even if they rationalize by saying they want to save exclusives for people who attend conventions. That's a small percentage of the potential audience that they're reaching with the footage, and descriptions are not the same as seeing it.
I could see it if they were putting out a legit copy so people wouldn't be watching a low quality bootleg. I read that it was going to be on the Phase 1 boxed set so maybe that's why.

Same thing happened with the Kick Ass 2 red band trailer. I started a thread on that on another forum and had to edit a new link in a half dozen times because Viacom kept taking it down. The mind boggles.
