Stories were running the other day about Captain America: Winter Soldier getting a Superbowl trailer after Disney bought up an ad spot. Although the other big movie that will play to the action-adventure crowd they have coming is Need for Speed, so Cap may not be a sure thing.
Now, The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Disney is shopping for last minute ad time, hoping to pick something up for a good deal from an advertiser that dropped out. It's not sure thing they will get a spot, but people are already reporting that Guardians of the Galaxy could be the new ad, despite Disney having those two major movies listed above coming out in the next few months.
I would expect that Captain America 2 and Need for Speed would take priority, despite early buzz for Guardians, unless Disney is able to pick up two additional spots. It could cost them over $4 million just for one additional spot, but Superbowl commercials are not only considered DVR proof due to fans watching the event live, but often as looked forward to as the game itself.
James Gunn responded to this story today and looks like it's pretty much going to go as I said above: not at Superbowl, but soon.
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.
