It's the best way to reach the broadest of audiences. For the third time in as many years, last year's Super Bowl was most watched television broadcast ever.

Does it mean the movie won't succeed if they don't? No. I just think that is a missed opportunity to showcase the world's greatest hero.
Sure it's a missed opportunity, but I'm thinking WB doesn't feel it's worth shelling out that kind of money for one commercial when that money can be used for multiple ones at a later date and I doubt many people won't see MOS because they don't know it exists. Maybe, for now, it's company policy to not bother with Super Bowl ads for any film.

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
