Eager for your first look at Avengers: Age of Ultron? Well, you’re in luck. The film may still be 14 months away, but in 3 weeks ABC will air Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe, a one hour special that will give you an inside look at not only the upcoming Avengers sequel, but also Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Intended to give fans a “front row seat to the inception of Marvel Studios, the record-breaking films, the cultural phenomenon, and further expansion of the universe by Marvel Television,” the special will premiere on March 18th at 8 p.m.
As of now, there’s no additional details on what exactly will be shown but I would imagine that most of what’s on display will focus on the studio’s two films that are releasing this year: Captain America and Guardians. I’m sure we’ll see a bit of Avengers: Age of Ultron as well, but it will likely be just a small tease, probably the same one that was shown at Comic-Con last year.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will assemble in theatres on May 1, 2015. Check out the full press release below and be sure to tune into ABC on March 18th.
