Movies What 'Avengers 4' Trailer Fever Should Teach Marvel

Recommended Posts

Quote

What’s remarkable about this fevered anticipation is the degree to which it’s fan-created, without noticeable direction from Marvel or the filmmakers involved, although the Russo brothers aren’t above trolling fans with teases about both the movie’s trailer, title and very existence, amusingly enough. Nonetheless, with little more than the most vague tease about… well, anything at all, fans will leap to the conclusion that the Avengers 4trailer is imminent and leap into an advanced state of excitement.

With this in mind, I would like to submit a proposal to Marvel Studios: Don’t release a trailer for the next Avengers movie.

There’s literally no need to spend the time or money doing so, given the advanced level of enthusiasm that’s already out there for the movie, and is only likely to build as it gets closer to the May release date. It’s not as if anyone needs to be told that this project exists, or is forthcoming; people are already so aware of it that they’re sharing secondhand rumors online about when the promotion for the movie might begin. That’s a kind of brand awareness that most studios would kill for.

This actually sounds like a good idea!

I'd be on board. Youtubers would hate it because they couldn't make their stupid "10 Things You Missed In The Avengers Trailer!!!!" videos. So sounds good to me.

For as much fan hype as there already exists, I'm skeptical that that means trailers have no value. It's not just fans you're targeting but the general audience who shows up for these movies, but otherwise is not very involved and doesn't pay much attention.

 

Maybe @sblfilms will have some useful perspective.

A world with no trailers is not a world I wish to live in. 

 

Plus i I think we’ve established that without trailers 90% of the general public is too stupid to even know there are new movies out.

There are very few things in the world that makes money without marketing or advertising, movies isnt one of them.

If there's a single lesson to be taken from this it's that these media companies need to learn to ignore the most rabid fans. Whether it's Marvel or Disney or Blizzard or EA or whomever, these are companies that serve millions and millions of people, and the bad actions of the frenzied minority shouldn't drive their decisions.

Hah maybe. I'm not sure that would be sufficient, but I also don't purport to know what is effective at reaching the general public :p

They could literally show the title of the movie with some music and voice clips throughout the franchise and then the release date. Literally nothing but text on the screen. I think that would be a ballsy, brilliant move.

They can split the difference by putting out a trailer that shows almost nothing at all.

Weren't we supposed to get a trailer yesterday?

I don't think that was ever confirmed, but it was delayed out of respect for the funeral of WASP-in-Chief 41.

You jest, but many people online were threatening to bomb Marvel Studios if Captain Marvel trailer was released before Avengers 4.

Bad form to release a trailer where everyone comes back from the dead on the day of a POTUS funeral I suppose.
