Quick Take: Superhero Super Bowl Spots

The only parts of the Super Bowl we watched...

The latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming in May and we at the Moose have feels. This movie seems a bit like Marvel saying: “We have all the superheroes. Really.” Which could go either way for them. But we have a new trailer, so let’s see how this goes.

Ready, set, chant!

Brad: Why is stupid chanting getting in the way of my fabulous watch  armor?

Clarice: Oh my god! Guys! I feel nothing but the EXACT same level of excitement and trepidation as their previous trailer. Whee?

Cole: Well, that didn’t alleviate ANY of my fears…

Hanna: WTF Bucky! WTF!

 

And then there was X-Men: Apocalypse. Also determined to have ALL THE SUPERHEROES.

Clarice: Why is Magneto wearing flannel? Magneto does not wear flannel.

Cole: Not even Olivia Munn as Psylocke cutting through a damn car with fabulous purple hair and a great honking pink psychic sword can convince me I’m ever going to get a bloody decent X-Men film.

Theresa:1 “Apocalypse means to destroy this world.” Is he giving us the definition of the word or commenting on the intentions of the villain? And is either necessary?

Hanna: Poe! ;-;

 

And finally, we get DC.

We couldn’t hold it to one line this time…

Hanna: Personally, these are my favorite Batman v. Superman trailers.

Clarice: For fuck’s sake, you can practically see the screaming in Affleck’s and Eisenberg’s eyes.

Hanna: It’s such a bad wig…

Cole: They don’t show Henry Cavill speaking because he can’t keep the screaming on the inside, though in Jesse Eisenberg’s case that awful wig might just be holding it all in.

Clarice: Eisenberg’s wig looks like when I would chop the hair off the Barbies I didn’t want as a kid.

 

  1. Theresa is a voice in Hanna’s head. She’s generally less forgiving than Hanna.
