Warner Bros. didn’t buy a Super Bowl commercial, but ‘Batman v Superman’ could still be featured

Fans hoping to see an epic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Super Bowl commercial this Sunday will be disappointed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. will not be spending the outrageous $5 million for a 30-second spot… but there’s still hope!

While Warner Bros. hasn’t bought an ad proper, it’s possible a promotional partner could plug Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, in their spot, sources say. (Rival studios say they wouldn’t be surprised if some of the cast were at the Super Bowl.)

Hopefully THR’s sources are correct and we see Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Batman, and Superman pop up in a commercial one way or another!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder has teamed up with Doritos for the Super Bowl this year. A contest was held last year and the winner will have their Doritos commercial shown during the big game, win $1,000,000, and get to work with Snyder on a future DC Comics movie.
