How Soon Is Too Soon For Blockbuster Teases?
This week saw the release of the first images of the new movie Spider-Man and Captain America – despite a year separating the release of their respective movies. When it comes to blockbuster movies, how far in advance is too far when teasing audiences?
While Sony seem to have been a little too eager to let us see Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man this week – His movie isn’t due out until July 2012, after all – Marvel/Disney has been much more patient when it comes to doling out images of Chris Evans as Captain America, considering his movie hits theaters this summer. Of course, part of that patience may have to do with not wanting to overwhelm the other Marvel/Disney superhero release of the summer, Thor, but even that movie kept its visual cards close to its metaphorical chest for a surprisingly long time – and we’ve still not seen any official pics from X-Men: First Class, which is due in theaters a month and a half before Cap. When it comes to summer blockbuster movies that rely on visual spectacle, when do you think moviemakers should let fans get a glimpse of what they’re to expect? Let us know with the poll below:
