    A trailer? For comic books? What is the exact point of this? It looks like a joke.

    Well, that’s a bit harsh. It’s just Marvel trying to make their product more accessible and “adult” by advertising their book using a new idiom. It didn’t do anything for me, necessarily, but I think it’s an admirable try at something different, even if they did just make a standard “In a world…” movie trailer…

    It’s just advertising. Take if from a guy who made advertising for years, if it doesn’t move books, it’ll go away soon enough.

    Actually, this is exactly the type of thing Marvel SHOULD be doing, but on television.
