The teaser trailer for Marvel’s Avengers Age of Ultron was originally going to debut with the next episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD on ABC. But someone leaked the international version of the trailer (blame Hyrda) and now Marvel has officially released the first trailer for the next Avengers film a few days early.
Without any further ado (other than a word about spoilers, there are some):
Some initial reaction: that is one eerie version of “I’ve got no strings” from Pinocchio. I like that we’re seeing lots of international settings, the Avengers are not restricted to NYC for their battles. And, as we saw from the SDCC preview art, there’s the broken shield of Captain America.
This does not surprise me. Joss Whedon is known for making sure the audience feels the stakes are very real for his characters. Mortal peril must be real.
All-in-all, a great trailer. There is loads of stuff left to be explained, but what we see is pretty dramatic.
More, including a full plot synopsis and some rumoring from Peter below the jump:
Thanks to the panel at San Diego Comic-Con and a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly we get to see some of the first images from “Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron” and a fantastic panel of the stars of the movie.
EW journeyed to the set on a day they filmed a pivotal early scene. The cover even offers the world its first look at Ultron, and inside you’ll find a brief synopsis on how he became the bad guy.
There’s also a nice sidebar about how director/writer Joss Whedon creatively worked around Scarlett Johansson’s pregnancy, which was announced just prior to filming.
This issue of Entertainment Weekly is in stores now, or you can read parts of it and view never-before-seen photos online at ew.com.
From the Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con we were also treated to more photos from the movie.
Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is due in US theaters May 1, 2015.
