I gotta admire the publicity people working this weekend — the game isn’t even over, and I’m already getting email about the geek movies promoted in the ads so far. (Ok, maybe they scheduled their email ahead of time, but I prefer to think they were waiting by the keyboard.)
Here’s the biggest comic-fan release of the summer — Marvel’s The Avengers, out May 4.
Neat finally seeing all the heroes in one shot, with that circle at the end.
Also from Disney is John Carter (no “of Mars”, not after their last film with that in the title), out March 9.
I don’t even like sword-and-sandals battle pics when they’re set on Earth, so that one’s not for me, but I suspect it will be hard to avoid hearing about it.
Also aired so far are trailers for Battleship and GI Joe 2: Retaliation, which look like they could be the same movie.
