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.

REASONN-true, very true
Genaro - 1/23/2014, 6:50 PM
No CA:TWS either?
MrCBM56 - 1/23/2014, 6:50 PM
This really sucks though... This could've been some great exposure. I think waiting to release the trailer until The Winter Solider is too long.
ColonelKilgore - 1/23/2014, 6:51 PM
Soon? I cant wait that long.
TheMexicanSuperman - 1/23/2014, 6:52 PM
I'm guessing the trailer will come out when Capitan America The Winter Soldier hits theaters.
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 6:52 PM
man , i hope its in february ,i cant wait any longer for it, we should get along 2min or 30 secondish trailer after the waiting we have had to do, GUNN please make a great trailer and a great movie, alas we still have the captain america spot to look forward to, the spiderman 2 spot and DOFP spot
SageMode - 1/23/2014, 6:53 PM
I refuse to believe it.
MrCBM56 - 1/23/2014, 6:53 PM
They'll probably release a trailer with robocop.
AlexanderLykins - 1/23/2014, 6:54 PM
If it's not awesome I'm going to lose it. Been waiting so [frick]ing long for anything to be released and all we've gotten are on still, water bottles and Halloween costumes. Are you kidding me? Give us one or two stills at least!
McNyagano - 1/23/2014, 6:54 PM
Gunn might be trolling us....
MrCBM56 - 1/23/2014, 6:54 PM
They should've released a teaser with The Hobbit 2, a superbowl spot, a final trailer with The Winter Soldier, than some TV spots in the next months.
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 6:55 PM
MRCBM-I HOPE THEY DO RELEASE IT WITH ROBOCOP CAUSE I JUST CANT WAIT ANYMORE
Kurne - 1/23/2014, 6:55 PM
Stupido.
TheAmbassador - 1/23/2014, 6:56 PM
Fuq that shite

Also, does putting img in [] work for posting pictures/gifs?

But seriously, I need to see Rocket Raccoon shooting things in HD soon
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 6:56 PM
i think by creating this anticipation, this hype, they are setting us up for dissapointment...what if the trailer isnt awesome
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 1/23/2014, 6:57 PM
Told you guys that little tweet of his was an innuendo. Disney has gone with Maleficent instead. Marvel is really [frick]ing themselves over with this film... By "Soon", he means in like 3 months...
BritishMonkey - 1/23/2014, 6:57 PM
I thought so, he did say before there wouldn't be anything at the Superbowl.
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 6:58 PM
MRCBM-RELEASING IT WITH THE HOBBIT WAS TOO SOON, IT HADNT BEEN THAT LONG SINCE THEY HAD WRAPPED FILMING SO THY HAD TO SPRUCE UP THE VFX BUT THIS IS AMISSED OPPORTUNITY TO NOT HAVE THE FIRST FOOTAGE DEBUT ON A GRAND MARKETING STAGE LIKE THE SUPERBOWL,HOPEFULLY GUNN AND MARVEL MAKE IT UP WITH A GREAT TRAILER AND A GREAT MOVIE!!!
PsychoManiacJacky - 1/23/2014, 6:58 PM
Oh great cause we don't need a Super Bowl ad at all, I mean everyone totally knows who the Guardians of The Galaxy are right?
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 6:58 PM
at this point, it is gonna be march, 6 months before the film comes out
marvel72 - 1/23/2014, 6:59 PM
oh f*ckin hell,i need some footage the wait is killing me.
AlexanderLykins - 1/23/2014, 7:00 PM
A sneak peak or spot during the Super Bowl, then the full trailer in mid February, some stills for March and April, a final trailer in May, more still until July and then TV spots until the release. Is this that [frick]ing hard? Give us something! Anything!
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 7:01 PM
i wanted it not to be true but i had a feeling that they werent gonna debut it at the superbowl,marvel please speed up the marketing Chris Pratt said that they will have a big marketing push for it
MrCBM56 - 1/23/2014, 7:02 PM
Here's how I pictured the Superbowl spot (if there was going to be one)-

-We fade in to see the marvel logo and we hear a Voice-Over/ "We arrested these five on Xandar"

-Cut to Romahan Dey and another officer going through the rap-sheets of the guardians with another voice-over/ "Who are they?"

-The shot with the guardians all lined up in that room. Voice-over/"The Guardians of the Galaxy"

-The words "Star-Lord" pop up on screen" following several action shots of him

-The words "Drax The Destroyer" pop up on screen" following several action shots of him

-The words "Gamora" pop up on screen" following several action shots of her

-The words "Groot" pop up on screen" following several action shots of him

-Cut back to the room with the Guardians lined up. We hear the guard ask/"And's who's that little guy?" Rohoman responds, "That's Rocket Racoon"

-We see several action shots of RR in action and BAM!

-The Guardians of the Galaxy logo appears.


^Or something like that.
AlexanderLykins - 1/23/2014, 7:02 PM
And I don't mean [frick]ing water bottles or Halloween costumes. Gosh dang it, I'm pissed. People don't know who these characters are! Stan [frick]ing Lee didn't know who these guys are!
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 7:03 PM
release some stills atleast!! give us alook at ronan ,pleaseeee!!
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 7:04 PM
MRCBM-GODDAMN THAT SOUNDS AWESOME BUT ALAS....
AlexanderLykins - 1/23/2014, 7:04 PM
@ezio619
They are setting the fans up for disappointment. It's infuriating!
Kurne - 1/23/2014, 7:05 PM
This is ridiculous! I'm actually looking (more) forward to seeing Chris Pratt as Star-Lord than the other Guardians. Everyone working on the film are calling him a movie star.
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 7:05 PM
Alexander-its not marvel releasing those images, those are leaking out
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 7:06 PM
Kurne-me too ,starlord is the one im looking forward to the most
ATrueHero1987 - 1/23/2014, 7:07 PM
You know, when I saw this, I was like "FFFUUCCCKKK" but....what if Gunn/Marvel release a trailer later that night or the day after the superbowl?lol
TheAbaryMan369 - 1/23/2014, 7:07 PM
*Facepalm*
MrCBM56 - 1/23/2014, 7:09 PM
I just wanna see GROOT in action!!

@ATrueHero1987
Then we'd all be extremely happy campers. The vibe I'm getting however is their going to let Captain America: The Winter Soldier get all of the limelight. Then we're going to start this insane, last second media push to get people talking about Guardians of the Galaxy. It sadly won't work. People need to get excited about this type of movie now! The Avengers had so much early publicity and it excelled. I have a feeling this movie will go the opposite direction and could end up possibly being Marvel's first flop.

Also by soon he means April or May.
