Avengers: Age of Ultron Teaser Trailer Released


After months of agonising Comic-Con induced teasing and speculation, the teaser trailer for Marvel‘s latest superhero venture,  The Avengers: Age of Ultron, is finally here – and it does not disappoint.

In this action-packed two minute sneak peek at Joss Whedon’s second directorial showcase of ‘earth’s mightiest heroes‘, we are practically given a visual feast, hinting to a whole range of new exciting sequences and characters. Arguably the most thrilling of all these new characters, being the enigmatically sinister new villain, Ultron – a maniacal AI robot with a newfound hunger for world destruction – voiced by the wickedly brilliant James Spader. As well as Ultron, who by the way, in the final snippet of the trailer, looks totally bad-ass, we get our first proper look at mutated twins, Wanda and Pietro Maximoff, otherwise known as Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, played here and last seen in the end-credits of The Winter Soldier, by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen.

As well as this villainous bunch, brought on to follow in Loki’s malicious footsteps since the first film, we also get to briefly check in with our heroes – who, in all honesty, are not looking as righteous or as strong as they did at the end of the 2012 blockbuster. Bruce Banner, a.k.a The Hulk, in particular, is looking seriously fragile and almost at breaking point as he runs through snowy terrain and sits with a disturbingly troubled looking face on the helicarrier. This and the sight of his green-skinned alter-ego battling the awe-inspiring new stark suit, menacingly named ‘Hulkbuster‘, makes the fate of our favourite rage machine feel horribly tense. As well as this, tensions appear to be running high for demi-god Thor and Tony Stark, as we see the two in a rather shocking altercation in which the newly de-arc reactored Tony is at the mercy of the God of Thunder’s strength. We are also given some grimacing glances of Black Widow and Hawkeye (though annoyingly, not together, so I wouldn’t hold out on the secret of Budapest being revealed just yet, Clintasha shippers). But most worryingly of all, the good Captain’s shield is shown to be broken and shattered, before Ultron appears, bleakly uttering the words ‘there are no strings on me‘….

This infamous group of good guys definitely look out of their depth and in the most real sense of peril yet seen in the Marvel Universe. The fact that this is just a teeny tiny peek at what is yet to come in April next year, is sure to leave every fan in a state of fearful excitement.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released in UK cinemas on 24th April, 2015.
