Dropping early this morning, the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron was supposed to be shown during next week’s Agents of Shield, though due to a rumoured leak, Marvel Entertainment decided to release the trailer early.
Set to a rather haunting rendition of “I’ve got no strings” from Pinocchio, the footage gives us our first look at Ultron, played by The Blacklists’ James Spader, as well as seeing Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch respectfully.
The highly anticipated trailer also gave us Iron Man’s Hulkbuster Armour in action. Seemingly an add-on to the base suit, he is shown fighting Banner’s Hulk in a crowded street, while people flee around them. Also a few glimpses of a fallen Captain America with his shield laying split in two on the floor.
The official synopsis for the film has also been unveiled:
“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.”
The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits cinemas on May the 1st 2015.
