What to expect from Marvel and DC

Ant-Man and The Wasp: new Quantumania trailer

The 2023 Super Bowl is shaping up to be a great watch, even if you have no interest in American football.

Not only is Rihanna performing during the halftime show, but we’re also expecting trailers for some of the most anticipated movies of the year to drop.

The Big Game attracts huge television audiences, so Hollywood studios usually spend heavily to promote their upcoming blockbusters during commercial breaks.

US broadcaster Fox is charging $7m (£5.7m) for 30-second ads during the game, according to Variety.

We also got glimpses of TV shows including The Rings of Power, Moon Knight and the final seasons of Better Call Saul and Killing Eve.

This year’s Super Bowl kicks off at 11:30pm UK time on February 12. These are the trailers that could start during the game.
