Only hours ago, Marvel revealed that the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer would officially be shown during next week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD on ABC. But you won’t have to wait seven days to see it, because it’s already been leaked online. Marvel’s response on Twitter? “Dammit, Hyrda.” Oh, and they also decided to just go ahead and release the full 1080p version of the trailer right now on YouTube which you can see right here.
In the first official trailer, we get to see a more serious look at the Marvel universe after this summer’s hilarious hit Guardians of the Galaxy took things in a slightly different direction. The trailer doesn’t give up much in terms of details, but it gives fans exactly what they want by clearly showing all of the returning favorites like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and even gives us a first look at the highly anticipated Hulkbuster, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and Ultron in action.
Avengers: Age of Ultron opens on May 1, 2015. Check out the official synopsis from Marvel below:
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 Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, 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, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963.
