SR Forum: Super Bowl LI Trailers, Captain Marvel, John Wick 2 and More!

SR Forum Feb 7 2017 - John Wick 2, Transformers 5, Captain Marvel

This week was all about one thing: Super Bowl Trailers. Sure, some people tuned in to watch Super Bowl darlings the New England Patriots compete against the "Dirty Birds" from Georgia, the Atlanta Falcons, for the title of the best team in the NFL but a lot of people only turn on the big game to see the Super Bowl ads and trailers for upcoming blockbuster movies - they weren't disappointed. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, The Fate of the Furious, Baywatch and several more, all released excellent trailers.

We’ve picked a few highlights from the last seven days to help spurn conversation but feel free to discuss any topic (within reason) that catches your fancy. As with any new project, we’ll be updating and modifying the SR Forum post as we find new and interesting ways to present the information and discussion. Give us your thoughts and suggestions in the comments section. As usual, talk about whatever you like as long as it’s related to movies, TV or Screen Rant itself.

Many remember Batman and Robin's crossover episodes on Scooby-Doo but there were way more than that will make you scratch your head.
