In just a little over four hours, fans were able to unlock the third Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer this morning. It was originally suppose to release on Thursday this week. This full-length trailer provides audiences with more back story on Ultron and how his dubious plot affects our heroes. As one of the greatest big bads in the Marvel Universe, this trailer certainly sets up the movie to live up to expectations.
We’ve seen tons of Avenger-y action between the Hulk and Iron Man, well pretty much everyone versus Tony Stark really. However, we haven’t been privy to much about Age of Ultron‘s plot. As a comic book reader, and Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes enthusiast, I am fully aware of what Ultron is capable of. This trailer sums up the intense conflict fairly well and provides just enough not to get into too many spoilers.
And as an added bonus, we finally get to see more of the twins, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, in action. We haven’t seen much of their involvement other than a few quick shots. In the trailer it looks like they’ll be involved with Ultron helping him in some manner before they realize their own stupidity and join up with Cap and the other heroes.
It’s a pretty awesome trailer all around, giving also our first glimpse of Vision at the tail end. Still, there is no clues as to how he comes into existence or how he’s involved amongst the chaos. However, I am comfortable with leaving everything as is and going into the film with just this information. I’m ready. My body is ready. Bring it on.
