Originally intended to premiere with the debut of American Crime on ABC, Marvel/Disney have opted to give fans the third Avengers trailer a day early. Epic action is displayed from beginning to end. Ultron, in all his glory, tears through the team like a knife through butter. New shots of the heroes can be glimpsed, Cap facing off against Ultron solo, Hulk vs Hulkbuster Iron-Man, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver toying with the main Avengers… It truly is something else.
Most interesting of all is our first live-action glimpse of Paul Bettany’s Vision. We only get a sneak peek at the very end of the trailer but he certainly looks magnificent.
As has been foretold, Age of Ultron looks to amp every aspect of the original film up to max. Ultron seems like a genuine character and should make up for some of the more derivative baddies we’ve seen in the MCU thus far. Spader just drips evil with every utterance and he fits the robot perfectly.
Aside from the action, a few shots hint at some of the connections being made throughout the film. Most notably, the one long rumored between Banner and Romanoff (Hulk and Blackwidow). The original Avengers had them pair off a few times, perhaps there close calls together have turned in to something more. Humor is also abundant with quips like, “you amazingly failed”.
The trailer alone is spectacular, I can’t wait for the full release!
