Super Bowl: 'Transformers 4' Most Anticipated Big Game Ad, Fandango Poll Finds (Exclusive)

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” also popular with fans

The Super Bowl is about more than just the Broncos and the Seahawks for movie fans, who will be huddled around their televisions, eagerly awaiting those commercial breaks between the big plays to see glimpses of upcoming films.

Movie ticketing service Fandango asked film fans which movie trailers and ads they're most looking forward to seeing during the Super Bowl, and “Transformers: Age of Extinction, ” which doesn't open until June,  was the clear winner with 48 percent of the vote. The movie brings back director Michael Bay and those giant robots, but shakes up the formula with a new star, Mark Wahlberg, subbing in for Shia LaBeouf, who was presumably busy torching his career with a short film bearing similarity to an obscure comic.

“The ‘Transformers’ movies have always been huge crowd pleasers, and the addition of Mark Wahlberg certainly brings more anticipation to the fourth film,” Dave Karger, Fandango's chief correspondent, said. “Plus, fans haven't seen any previews for ‘Transformers 4' yet, so it's the biggest true debut of the Super Bowl.”

The second and third most anticipated trailers are must-sees for comic book lovers. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” with a host of new villains like Electro and the Rhino, scored 20 percent of the vote, while “Captain America: The Winter Solider,” which finds Cap unraveling a conspiracy, was the most anticipated movie ad of 17 percent of responders.

    I think most of the Bay hate is only in the internet. Which is awesome :D

    • DoodMcAwesome .

      I agree. Most people I know don't really have any particular problem with Bay. But go on the internet and mention that you like a Michael Bay movie and you will get flamed to no end. I think it's mostly due to how on the internet the most vocal people tend to be the ones most critical of something.

    I so hope for a TMNT

      Its wont happen. Bay wants to avoid competition with his own films – such as Transformers Age Of Extinction.

        Also, the spots for the SB are way too expensive. We might see a trailer latar on the year, maybe released the same day with AOE :D

          Don't say that plz dnt say that

          • Humberto Adan Herrera Cosio

            Don't worry, the trailer won't be that late in the year, possible at the end of this month. They know they have to start to sell it, so they will.
