Ugh! You are killing us, Marvel!
Various Hollywood bloggers and journalists tweeted there would be a Guardians of the Galaxy Super Bowl trailer.
James Gunn now takes to his Twitter to clear up any confustion and says that is not the case. Gunn previously hinted that promotion on Guardians of the Galaxy wouldn't start for at least a couple months, which now looks to be so.
It's speculated (again) that the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer will be attached to the April release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
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.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 24, 2014
Update: James Gunn offered a further update on his Facebook:
Although I announced it on Twitter, I'm still getting questions about it on FB, so I thought I'd share here as well - the news reports of there being a Guardians of the Galaxy Super Bowl spot are incorrect. So if you're a fan planning on sitting through hours of football only to get your #GotG fix - don't! I know many of you are dying for a glimpse into the universe we're creating - believe me, I hear you loud and clear hundreds of times a day, and I am dying even more to share it with you - IT'S KILLING ME THAT I CAN'T SHOW YOU A GLIMPSE - but Marvel and Disney have had a plan in place for a long time for the rollout of these characters in the biggest and best way possible, serving the widest audience as possible. Trust that they know what they're doing, as they've been through this a few times before. And please be patient. Your enthusiasm, as always, is more than appreciated.
Guardians of the Galaxy has an August 1, 2014 release in the U.S.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team — the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector.
