It was supposed to be shown during the upcoming episode of Marvel’s Agents of Shield but some little devil (or hero, depending on whether or not you wanted to watch that show) has leaked the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer early.

Shall we watch it?

Sure, why not.


…wanna watch it again?


Is it the best trailer ever? No. There are a few too many generic shots of bystanders cowering as “stuff” happens. But does it get me pumped for next may? Yes. A huge, all in caps with seven E’s yes. So it’s a success as far as I’m concerned.

We get our first look and, more importantly, listen to James Spader as Ultron. He sounds much less robotic than I expected, which I really love as it instantly gives him more of a personality. He’s suitably menacing, appears to be running the Avengers ragged, and quotes a line from Disney’s Pinocchio, which maybe does make this the best trailer ever.

Then there’s a few shots of the main characters looking down in the dumps so we know the sequel is going to be a little darker than the first. The Hulk seemingly goes nuts which leads to Iron Man donning the Hulkbuster armour in what is definitely the trailer’s most nerd pleasing moment (and as a nerd I was most pleased).

I would’ve liked to have seen a little more of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, but they do need to keep something back for the film I suppose. What I did see of them I liked. And I didn’t even want to punch Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the face (man, he just has a punchable face) too much, which says more about how much I enjoyed the trailer than anything else could.
