No GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Super Bowl Ad After All
Teasing that we'll get something "awesome... soon," James Gunn has confirmed that Disney has NOT purchased a TV spot for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy to air during the big game next month!
It appears the infamous Nikki Finke jumped the gun yesterday when she posted to Twitter that the first official Guardians of the Galaxy visuals would debut in a TV spot during the Super Bowl next month. Writer/director James Gunn took to the social network moments ago to set the record straight. "For those of you asking about a #gotg Super Bowl spot," he started in a tweet, "there will not be one, but we will have something incredibly awesome for you soon." We currently don't have an inkling of what this "incredibly awesome" something could be or exactly how "soon" before we get to see it, but we can expect some Captain America: The Winter Soldier promotion next week. The Marvel sequel is guaranteed to get a TV spot and most likely an extended version online on game day, February 2, 2014. In the meantime, what do you think James Gunn is teasing?
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand - with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014.
