Really wish I could crosspost this in television but...
Here it is. Super Bowl 50. Say goodbye to roman numerals, Peyton Manning and the relevance of Coldplay all in one thread!
I bet Civil War shows Spider Man. One shot & one line with Iron Man & Captain America and you'll break the internet.
Could be! Part of me would love it if Marvel saved Spidey for the movie and kept him out of all the marketing, but there's no chance that's going to happen. If they want to make a big splash and have the one Super Bowl ad EVERYONE would be talking about, throwing Spider-Man in would absolutely do it. We'll see if it happens.
I kind of feel the same way. I'm looking forward to most of the movies on that list, but it's more exciting when the Super Bowl is debuting footage. We've seen stuff from all of those movies (save BOURNE), so we kind of already know what to expect. Plus, it's hard to get excited about ZOOLANDER 2 and DEADPOOL spots when we can see the movies in less than a week.
I'm okay with either team winning (though I understand why you might be leaning a certain way), but I just hope it's a game. I'd love to be entering the 4th quarter with both teams still in it. My gut tells me that won't happen, but we'll see.
And the balloons are a nice touch!
Yeah, Cards are my #1, but Broncos are close to my heart. I've said before that I'm okay with it being Carolina's year and they've earned it. But man, I don't want to see Peyton's career end with him getting the yips and losing in a blow-out Super Bowl.
I agree. I think there's a very real contingent out there that is rooting for Peyton to totally go down in flames, but I've always liked the guy, and I'd like to see his (excellent) career end on at least a respectable note.
The key to it being a close game is Denver weathering the early Carolina storm. Even when Peyton was in MVP form people observed that his teams were much mroe comfortable when they were on schedule and not playing from behind. And now that he's more of a game manager they definitely cannot afford to get way down early. The Panthers have shown a penchant for getting off to quick starts recently, so Denver's defense has to be ready to go.
Even though I picked the Panthers by two scores I believe it's more likely to be a close game at the end than a Carolina blowout. Most NFL games, even when a lousy team plays a good one, seem to end up being relatively close these days. It's just sort of the nature of the NFL.
While I think Carolina will win I also think it will be close. But if Manning goes down like he did to the Jets in 2002 I would be happy.
I'm pulling for The Broncos because Manning has always come across as a good dude. I know that Papa Johns owner is an asshole and his pizza is at best, not bad, but a football player has a limited amount of time to make as much money possible; so I won't hold that against Manning.
I would like to see a Civil War spot, but I would prefer they save Spidey for the big screen, but I won't be surprised if he is shown. Marvel does tend to show a tad too much in trailers. That shot of the Hulk catching Iron Man should have never been in a trailer.
Anyone not thinking it's incredibly hard on a person's body to be in the NFL (or that anyone can do that), should be required to watch that MVP walkout presentation on repeat for the entirety of whatever they think their afterlife will be. Almost every damn one of those guys was either walking very gingerly/slow, or outright limping (or something similar), and some of them aren't even that old yet.
Love the NFL, but that was damn hard to watch.
Yeah, I know they wanted to have a sense of history with Super Bowl 50 but some people they should just show video highlights of so we can remember them how they played, not how they are now 10-20 (or 30) years later.
San Fran boos anyone, by the way.
A cheaper shot than anyone in the NFL ever laid on him...
