Which means this year’s Super Bowl telecast on Feb. 6 will feature the most patriotic commercial in TV history. (Sorry, Daisy.) According to the Hollywood Reporter, Captain America: The First Avenger will debut its first official trailer during the Super Bowl. But that’s not the only big movie that will be prominently featured on the most-watched program of the year. Fellow Marvel superhero Thor will also appear, along with a threequel (Transformers: Dark of the Moon), a fourquel (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), a pair of gonzo westerns (Cowboys & Aliens and Rango), and J.J. Abrams’ latest mystery project Super 8. And also Limitless, the Robert De Niro/Bradley Cooper magical-drug project. (One of these things: Not like the others!)

Movie trailers are one of my favorite parts of the Super Bowl, second only to beer commercials. (The football can be fun, too.) Personally, I’m most excited to finally get an extended peek at the Captain America movie. But which of these trailers are you most excited about, PopWatchers? Take the Super Bowl Movie Preview poll after the jump…
