Disney has released the first Avengers: Age of Ultron clip from writer/director Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated Marvel Studios sequel.
The clip debuted during a new episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, where the first trailer was set to premiere before it leaked last week.
Age of Ultron sees the titular Avengers battling a force of their own invention, as Tony Stark’s new robot Ultron gets a mind of his own and decides that humanity is in need of wiping out.
This clip is essentially what was shown at Comic-Con this summer, and it shows that despite the serious tone of the trailer, there’s still plenty of fun to be had.
In the clip, the Avengers are letting off steam in the form of an Avengers party in Stark’s penthouse, as they each take turns trying to lift Thor’s hammer… Shenanigans ensue.
The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Andy Serkis, and Samuel L. Jackson.
First Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer:
Marvel was planning to release the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer next week, but it’s like the tech activist nerds say: information wants to be free. The trailer has popped up on the internet a week ahead of its scheduled release.
Some days just turn out great, and this is one of them. Avengers fans can get an early fix of “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, since some blessed soul saw fit to upload the trailer to the internets… or was it Hydra?
As you can see, Age of Ultron is shaping up to be just the sort of massive sequel that Marvel needs to follow up the smash hit Avengers, which is one of the highest grossing movies of all time. As we heard in previous reports, there’s that creepy “No Strings on Me” rendition throughout the trailer, an allusion to the fact that the villainous Ultron has cut the ties that connected him to the humans he was intended to serve.
We also get our first glimpses of the newest additions to the Avengers squad in action. There’s a quick shot of Quicksilver, in a scene that we’re sure Marvel has pulled out all the stops for in order to top Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past version of the character. We also get a look at the Scarlet Witch, though we only catch a glimpse of her powers.
Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, The film is once again written and directed by the legendary Joss Whedon.
