This is one of the best spots from Sunday’s superbowl commercials and really got me pumped up for The Avengers. Whedon really pulled out all the stops and I have to say the reveal of the Hulk was awesome. There’s even a nice scene of Loki and Tony Stark sharing some banter to fill in a little story info. Good stuff to check out including some nice tag lines.
Marvel has released a teaser for what fans can expect to see from the ‘The Avengers’ trailer on Super Bowl Sunday.
The 17 second clip features some new footage set to operatic music with glimpses of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and The Hulk (who will be played by Mark Ruffalo).
The highly anticipated superhero film, for which the first trailer was released in October, assembles in theaters on May 4.
Last week we were treated to a teaser for a Ferris Bueller project that set the internet on fire. It was speculated that it was everything from a reboot to a sequel to a television series. Most actually realized what it was early on when the date on the teaser matched up with the Super Bowl. Well here’s your first look at that Super Bowl commercial as Ferris Bueller sells his soul for a Honda ad. Yes they re-enacted major portions of the movie and substituted a Honda for the car used in the original. Now that I’ve ruined it for you by spoiling it feel free to watch Ferris Bueller sell out for some Honda Money.
To celebrate the launch of the all-new 2012 CR-V, Honda brought Ferris Bueller’s Day Off back in a big game commercial. We cast Matthew Broderick as himself, skipping out on a day of acting work and living it up in his all-new CR-V. Relive movie history with Honda’s fresh twist and wonderful homage to this ’80s classic.
Some have quibbled with the Black Eyed Peas’ halftime performance during yesterday’s Super Bowl, and Fergie feels you. “Some of my notes were pitchy to me,” sheadmitted to a radio show today. Still, “It was so exhilarating. The whole thing. It was so big. That’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing.” Fergie saved most of her defense for the beleaguered Christina Aguilera, whose
Christina Aguilera mixed up the words to the National Anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday. When she was supposed to sing, “Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, o’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming,” the Grammy winner went with, “Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, what so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last reaming.” Whoops. Twitter users were quick to notice, and Aguilera’s Wikipedia page has already been updated to reflect the error. But she otherwise sounded fine! Check it out, below:

Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the ‘Super-Soldier Serum’ and bombarded by ‘vita-rays.’ Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and leader of the Avengers.
