UPDATE: The trailer hit early and is already online here! And it looks awesome! Ultron? Check! Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch? Check! Hulkbuster armor? Sold!
The long awaited first trailer for Marvel’s upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to debut next week on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. A brief glimpse of footage was shown as the San Diego comic con but the majority of the public has yet to see anything more than concept art, posters and released stills of the next installment of the Marvel movie juggernaut. The announcement was made at the end of yesterday’s episode, followed quickly by an Avengers tweet making it official.
Hopefully more light will be shown on the film as a result of the trailer but we do know a good amount about the movie already. Retired from the superhero gig, Tony Stark creates a robotic peace keeping force in the form of a new artificial intelligence named Ultron. When Ultron goes beyond it’s programming and threatens the globe it’s up to the Avengers to stop it and save the world. New team members to help in the fight include the speedy Quicksilver, the reality warping Scarlet Witch and the android Vision.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters May 1, 2015.
