We reported Tuesday that tomorrow's Iron Man 2 premiere will also debut something that could possibly be more exciting than Iron Man 2 itself—a trailer for the J.J. Abrams film Super 8. We were all thinking this could be a teaser for a sequel—or at least related somehow—to Cloverfield.

Last night, the man himself told the world otherwise while attending the 2010 Time 100 Gala at the Time Warner Center, Vulture reported.

"You have to check [out the trailer]," said J.J. Abrams. "But it has nothing whatsoever to do with Cloverfield, despite your expert reporting."

As for what the trailer does have to do with, he added, "I won't be able to tell you until it's done."

So—no return to the universe of Cloverfield. What do you think Abrams is up to?
