The anticipation for the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is beginning to reach dizzy heights with many news outlets expecting the movie to garner in excess of $600 million worldwide in its opening weekend, and while we here at Scified Heroes are excited to uncover the many mysteries of what promises to be one of the most succesful movies ever made, the movies impending release means even more for fans of superhero movies.
Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel from the US TV network ABC's show carrying his name announced on Twitter earlier (above) that the guests on tonights show will be Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans. The host also teases that something regarding Captain America: Civil War will also be showcased on his show, leading a lot of fans to speculate that Marvel Studios are to release either footage, a teaser or a full length trailer on the popular talk show. Anyone following CA:CW will be aware of the lack of marketing for the movie despite its May 6th release date. While it is understandable that marketing for the movie is on hold until after the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with both Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm being owned by Disney, the likelihood of some marketing is high due to both the stars appearance on the show and the gradually approaching release date.
Some fans have also speculated that a full length trailer for both CA:CW and Byan Singers X-Men Apocalypse will either be released this Thursday on Thanksgiving or attached to The Force Awakens upon its release December 18th, with the latter set for release later the same month as Civil War on May 27th. Speculation is also strife that both Deadpool and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will also be releasing new trailers either alongside The Force Awakens or in the lead up to the movies release.
So while Star Wars: The Force Awakens dominates the TV and the internet for the next few weeks keep your eyes peeled here on Scified Heroes for some explosive footage from each of next years highly anticipated superhero movies.
