Not even Tony Stark would have asked for an entrance more dramatic than that afforded the Iron Man 3 trailer during the Super Bowl.
Moments after the lights at the Superdome unexpectedly went out, CBS viewers were treated to a trailer for the third installment in Marvel's Iron Man trilogy. Given the timing of the ad relative to the bizarre power outage at the Superdome, there were a few folks on Twitter who wondered if perhaps Iron Man could have remedied the situation.
The enthusiasm for the trailer was a bit tempered by the fact that it teased an extended look at the film's Facebook page. We've gone ahead and brought that video to you as well.

As the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens battled for the right to lift the Lombardi Trophy, Super Bowl advertisers competed for another prize: your attention. Each time that CBS cut away from Super Bowl XLVII to pay the bills (or because the lights went out), another group of blockbuster commercials and movie trailers were unveiled (although many had been teased). At your Super Bowl party, were people paying closer attention during the game or the commercial breaks?
While memorable Super Bowl commercials like Apple's '1984' and Snickers' spot that featured Betty White will be remembered so many more are soon forgotten or, even worse, ridiculed as super fails. Will this ad make this year's best list? Is it controversial? Or, even worse, destined to be forgotten?
