Another bout of social media scoopery arrives this morning as the official Avengers: Age Of Ultron Twitter account has debuted a brand new TV spot for the forthcoming superhero sequel. In most cases, TV spots are merely re-edited trailers. Condensed into commercial-sized teasers, their sole purpose is for consumption between shows. However, in this minute-long video there’s practically no recycled footage.
Without wanting to give anything away – which is hard! – the clip feels unlike any other trailer released thus far. Where the one point of contention has been on the downbeat tone of earlier previews, this clip is peppy, excited and all about how much fun the cast appear to be having. Plus, we finally get a chance to hear one of the newest additions speak! Check it out for yourself above, and be sure to let us know your thoughts.
UK audiences will be able to catch Avengers: Age Of Ultron on April 23, with the film set for release in the US on May 1.
Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Chris Evans as Captain America. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
