AceShowbiz - It's a superhero galore during the first quarter of Super Bowl LIII as Marvel has debuted TV spots for two of its upcoming movies, "Avengers: Endgame" and "Captain Marvel". While both movies have been previewed in previously released trailers, the new sneak peeks share never-before-seen scenes.
The "Avengers: Endgame" TV spot evokes emotion as Chris Evans' Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America remembers his fallen comrades. "Some people move on, but not us," he says, while the video shows the remaining Avengers, including Tony Stark / Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce Banner / Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), James "Rhodey" Rhodes / War Machine (Don Cheadle), Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), Scott Lang / Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Nebula (Karen Gillan).
Hinting that others are also at a loss after the disappearance of some important public figures, a poster raises a question, "Where do we go, now that they're gone?" As the music intensifies, the silhouette of the remaining superheroes walking in line in what looks like a hangar appears on the screen.
In contrary to the solemn "Avengers: Endgame" TV spot, the "Captain Marvel" TV spot is more upbeat. It shows more scenes of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as U.S. Air Force fighter pilot with her friend Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch). She shows off her skills while flying the plane, before she turns into the titular superhero who fights enemies on the land and in outer space.
Also released during the first quarter of Super Bowl 2019 is "Alita: Battle Angel" TV spot. Citing an early review from Screenrant which dubbed it a "mind-blowing adventure," the sneak peek teases the "cinematic 3D event" from the producers of "Avatar".
"Avengers: Endgame" will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, it will arrive on April 26 in the United States.
"Captain Marvel" follows Carol Danvers, who was an accomplished Air Force pilot before she left her earthly life behind to join the elite military team Starforce on the Kree planet of Hala. She is back on Earth when the Skrulls plan an invasion of Earth. The Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck-directed flick is due out March 8.
As for "Alita: Battle Angel", it centers on the titular abandoned cyborg (Rosa Salazar), who is taken in by compassionate doctor Ido (Christoph Waltz). They later discover that Alita is more than what she seems and has an extraordinary past. As she navigates her new life, she battles other machines who are empowered with skills.
It is directed by Robert Rodriguez, with James Cameron and Jon Landau serving as producers. The sci-fi flick, which is based on Yukito Kishiro's manga "Gunnm", is set to bow on February 14.
