Avengers Superbowl teaser and Whedon speaks about Spidey cameo…

February 2nd, 2012 by Big Phil 2 Comments

Like the John Carter trailer earlier, there is now a trailer for The Avengers Superbowl trailer – the full trailer will probably pop up online this Sunday after the game itself.

We at FTN think trailers for trailers is a little overkill, but we’re suckers for Whedon and the Avengers.

Meanwhile, speaking of Joss Whedon, you may remember last week there were rumours flying around that Spider-man would cameo in The Avengers? Well we at FTN HQ were not convinced at any point and it seems we were right. Whedon has tweeted: There is no Spider-Man cameo. But the Avengers do turn off the dark.” So that’s that then. Or is it… if you don’t get the ‘turn off the dark nod then click here. Mind you, we have no idea what this can mean in this context…

    A guess: “The Avengers” takes place in NYC, and there’s probably a “Spiderman :Turn Off The Dark” poster, or the theater where it is playing, in the background of one of the shots.

    Sony has their greasy little paws on Spiderman as a film property, and they won’t give him back to Marvel until they’ve rung the last nickel out of ‘em.

    If Marvel were to be stupid enough to have a character dressed up as Spidey in one of their films, Sony’s lawyers would be delighted. Based on how much the Spiderman films have made in the past, they could (probably successfully) argue that Spiderman was the only reason people were watching the Avengers movie, and then they’d demand all the profits.

    As a THEATRICAL property, Marvel still owns Spidey, and there’s no harm done showing either a poster for the musical, or maybe the theater itself.

    Just not a guy, dressed up as Spiderman, in a film.
