“No matter who wins or loses, trouble always comes around” – Nick Fury
Nick Fury offers some words of wisdom in the latest trailer for the highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron, and from the looks of it, the Avengers are not only losing, but they’re in deep, deep trouble. Marvel Studios’ latest look at the Joss Whedon-directed sequel offers us a heaping helping of brand new footage including some spectacular sequences of Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor taking on the very reason it was created and even more creepy Pinocchio-sounding music:
There you go — that ought to take care of any bad taste left lingering in your mouth after last week’s Ant-Man teaser trailer. Not to say that the Ant-Man teaser was bad, but this is much more in keeping with the level of quality I’ve come to expect from Marvel Studios’ marketing department. Clocking in at 1 minute and 40 seconds, the new trailer shows the Avengers at each other’s throats, sparring both verbally and, in some cases, literally. Although we do get a nice little E.T.-esque moment between Black Widow and the Hulk, which is a nice change of pace, the rest of the proceedings are decidedly dour. Case in point: Ultron beating the ever-loving snot out of Captain America (and presumably breaking his shield), and an unsettling sequence of Andy Serkis (who I’ll bet my bottom dollar is playing Ulysses Klaw) training a gun on someone.
Just in case you want to scrutinize some of the scenes further, here’s a bunch of screencaps:
And one more for the road:
