It's not that we don't believe you..it's just that we don't have a reason to believe you.lol j/k

In these parts of the world, the only way anyone can ever be trusted when they say that they have a source is if they have a record of being true with any info they give out; it's not personal, it's just the way it is.

Well, for the sake of some of our curiosities, and if you don't mind me asking, would you care to share with us on why/how the info that you got is supposedly better?

That's right, truth is truth whether or not someone believes it. I was more curious than anything else.

Why would we know? They may not announce it. We won't know until the actual Superbowl.

Why are people so worked about the Superbowl?

I mean, aren't the comedic ads always the more memorable ones rather than ads for future films?

I really see no reason to get worked about the lack of a Superbowl commercial when trailers and/or TV spots closer to the release will have a more lasting effect on the audience who'll likely remember the more comedic commercials for whatever products/services they can have over commercials for films.

The comedic ads are what the television pundits discuss most....the movie trailers are always....always....did I say always.....the hottest topic in this site (as well as other comic/movie related sites) at Super Bowl time. The trailers are dissected with a fine tooth comb that makes the guys at CSI look like Barney Fife.

Yeah, I can understand that given that this site dedicated for those types of things.

But, I don't see the big deal about it from the advertising side of things for the general audience. I can see why WB wouldn't be interested in shelling out millions of dollars for 30 seconds and use the money for advertising at a later date.

Because over 100 million people watch the Super Bowl. and that means over 100 million people who may go see the film being advertised.

It a prime advertising opportunity and DEFINITELY one of the best advertising opportunites of the year, each year.

Because, for the billions of people who do not visit the Hype on a daily basis....that will be the first time they become aware of the upcoming movie.

I can't remember, but did WB advertise anything last year during the Super Bowl? Like maybe TDKR?

They didn't advertise anything last year, but they have advertised in the past.

In example:

They sat out completely, but I think marketing for the 3rd film of a hugely popular franchise is different than the relaunch of a previously franchise.
