10 days ago THR revealed that Disney after committing to a Super Bowl ad in the fall is said to be shopping for additional spots. Just a few hours before the event what this spot could be about?
Less than two weeks before the matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos, Disney -- after committing to a Super Bowl ad in the fall -- is said to be shopping for additional spots, possibly taking two or three spaces as other advertisers drop out. As a last-minute shopper, the studio faces prices approaching $4.4 million, sources tell THR.
Hollywood studios consider Super Bowl ads trade secrets, so nobody is talking about their plans. But sources say Disney spots likely will promote the Aaron Paul actioner Need for Speed (opening March 14 from DreamWorks), as well as Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 4) and/or Guardians of the Galaxy (Aug. 1).
After this story was posted, Guardians of the Galaxy director posted on Twitter that there won't be a GOTG spot during The Big Game:
For those of you asking about a #gotg Super Bowl spot, there will not be one but we will have something incredibly awesome for you soon.

So the studio has already secured commercial time for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Need for Speed. The third spot remains a mystery. What could it be about? Knowing J.J. Abrams and his previous projects it makes you wonder, is it possible to see something Star Wars related? With the script finished just a few weeks ago, it's highly unlikely, but still this is J.J. and you never know. Remember Super 8?
I surely don't want to get your hopes high (especially after the Wednesday Tease fiasco) but you never know with Abrams. So just enjoy the game and don't rise your expectations. After all you don't make a last minute buy for something like this, but still if we get something, it'll be a bonus. :)
Or maybe it's just about this :)
Still let's enjoy this one instead:
Sorry for the off-topic. Couldn't resist. :)
