Yesterday, the teams playing in Super Bowl XLVIII were set, with the AFC's Denver Broncos taking on the NFC's Seattle Seahawks. However, many could care less about the game itself, and are dying to know which movies will be promoted during the live telecast, airing Sunday, February 2 on Fox. Variety's Marc Graser revealed today that Marvel will be debuting a new trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, while DreamWorks is showing a TV spot for Need for Speed.

With the game less than two weeks away, we'll likely be hearing more about which studios will and will not be promoting their movies during the big game. The only other movie that has been confirmed to debut footage during Super Bowl XLVIII is Paramount's Transformers: Age of Extinction, which was revealed through a post on director Michael Bay's official website last month.
Of course, several studios will likely be sitting out of the festivities, since the average price for a 30-second ad is around $4 million. What other movies to you want to see promoted during the NFL championship game on February 2?
