As Super Bowl commercial breaks have become events in of themselves, there's no better time to roll out new trailers for the year's anticipated films.
Clips for "The Dictator" "Act of Valor" and "The Lorax" were among those to pop up during breaks from the football field, but fans were truly amped after seeing a new trailer for Marvel's "The Avengers."
As we saw in October, superheroes Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye have united to help battle Loki and his army, who are trying to take over Earth.
As Tony Stark/Iron Man says in the new clip, Loki might have an army, but the Avengers have the Hulk. The fight begins May 4.

And then there's "Battleship," which, like the trailers before it, still looks a lot like "Transformers: High Seas." Although, this time Rihanna gets a new line: "Boom." "Battleship," which also stars Kitsch, arrives May 18.

On June 29, you can call him "Joe."
