The pre-Super Bowl ad blitz gets more intense as the game approaches. Several new ads and teasers have popped up on the internet, complementing this comprehensive list of the ones that were released earlier.

Among the highlights that surfaced Tuesday was an extended version of an Acura ad featuring Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno, along with a sweet-looking 10-second teaser to the ad previewing the new "Avengers" movie commercial that will air during the game. Yep, a teaser for a commercial. But it's the "Avengers," so we'll take it.

It's more than fitting that an ad for the "Avengers" will be airing during Super Bowl XVLI since the Patriots will be avenging their 17-14 loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII. The Patriots have their own "Avengers" cast with "Captain America" - Tom Brady, "Iron Man" - Matt Light, "Thor" - Rob Gronkowski, "The Incredible Hulk" - Vince Wilfork. "Hawkeye" - Kyle Arrington, and, of course, mastermind and leader "Nick Fury" - the lovable Bill Belichick. Don't blink or you'll miss this one:

Meanwhile, Seinfeld can't wait to get his hands on the new Acura NSX, even though it won't debut for a year or two in showrooms. Even the Soup Nazi drops by for a cameo:

Lexus unleashed it's complete ad for the "The Beast," the 2013 Lexus GS, which will be the company's first Super Bowl ad:

Hyundai released several ads, including this pre-kick spot is called "All for One," with the theme song "Gonna Fly Now" from the film "Rocky," featuring employees at the Montgomery, Ala., plant:

Toyota is returning to the Super Bowl after a year absence with this spot for the "reinvented" Camry set to air during the third quarter. Hope the "reinvented" Camry includes brakes. I prefer the first version of the "reinvented" couch and the "reinvented" curtains made out of pizza.

A quick peek at the commercial tease for the upcoming Disney flick "John Carter." Looks like it will be about as successful as the presidency of Jimmy Carter.

There will no doubt be plenty of food ads. Kraft dropped this one, pushing a new healthy breakfast food. I'll stick with Cap'n Crunch and doughnuts.

Stay tuned - there will be plenty more to come.
