Announced to be revealed after next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer leaked and took over the Internet like any evil sentient artificial intelligence would. The leak only lasted a couple of hours until Marvel said, “Dammit, Hydra.” and released the official high definition version. The Internet – 1, Marvel – 0.

Great job handling the leak, Marvel. I could just imagine all the cursing in Marvel and Disney offices that went down and I’m sure it was all rage monster-y, but hey, all that matters is people love the Age of Ultron trailer and are now pumped to see your movie, right?
Now let’s break it down and talk about some of the most interesting bits in this teaser trailer, starting with that sweet young couple from Godzilla.
So unless this is a flashback, the M-word twins seem to be appearing as normal rioting citizens before they demonstrate some M-word powers. Whether this happens before or after their imprisonment by Baron Strucker as we saw at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we don’t know.
Is this the inside of the (a?) Quinjet? Cap, Widow, Thor, and Banner all look gloomy. Or maybe they just ate a bunch of shawarmas and are now just realizing that flying in a superfast jetship on a full stomach is not a good idea.
“You are all puppets,” says the walking giant metal puppet. But seriously, that is a super creepy introduction to Ultron, yo.
There are 3 women in this scene. So that’s Black Widow, maybe Maria Hill, and…? Pepper Potts maybe? Or Jane Foster? It can be the Scarlet Witch but if that’s the case, it’s odd that Quicksilver isn’t in there as well. And speaking of the twins, here they are at Ultron’s side:
Like most of us expected, the two noobs will start off as antagonists like how they started in the comics, albeit against the X-Men, not the Avengers. Also, is that Tony Stark’s new lab in ruins, the Hydra base where the twins were being kept destroyed, or an entirely different location that is really, really messy?
Welcome back, Nick. I guess.
I don’t know about you but Black Widow dropping out of a Quinjet (?) on a sweet ass motorcycle is some bad ass motherfuckery.
I didn’t know Andy Serkis is in this thing until I saw this trailer. I don’t know who he’s playing — probably someone who’s going to turn into a CG character because ANDY SERKIS. A recast Abomination perhaps?
Is this a flashback of Black Widow as a teenager? Is she getting more backstory and screen time? It would be great if that’s the case. If she’s not getting her own movie, I guess the next best thing is to put her front and center of this juggernaut of a sequel.
HULK VS. HULKBUSTEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!
If there’s one image that brings dread to the Marvel Universe — whether it’s in comics or in movies — it is the shattered shield of Captain America. It’s supposed to be nigh indestructible. You all saw how Cap used it to deflect Mjolnir in Marvel’s The Avengers, right? That thing is supposed to be tough. But here it is, broken into pieces with Cap’s seemingly lifeless body lying beside it. I can’t wait to see what is up with EVERYTHING.
I love the fact that Ultron is quoting lyrics from Pinocchio. Marvel and Disney’s corporate synergy game is strong.
Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet? Is it May 2015 yet?
