Dan Casey explains the new trailer’s hidden Ultron Easter egg.
The Age of Ultron is nearly upon us and thanks to the handy work of Earth’s Mightiest Fans, Marvel released the third trailer for the highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron early. Somehow, Marvel has done it again, delivering a blisteringly paced, action-packed trailer laden with Easter eggs, heretofore unseen character moments, and some jaw-dropping set pieces that have me shaking my fists angrily at my calendar because it isn’t May 1 yet.
What a trailer, huh? Not only do we get an Easter egg hinting at Ultron’s comic book origin (see my vlog above), but we also hear about Tony Stark’s hand in creating the Ultron program, see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes at both their highest and lowest points, and get a few more wonderfully Whedon one-liners, to boot. Like an idiot, I took off my headphones after the trailer smashed to the film’s logo, having to hastily put them back on when a vision appeared on my screen. Well, not just any vision–The Vision. It may have just been his face, but it was our first look at Paul Bettany’s live-action version of the venerable Avenger, and now I can’t wait to see more.
Stay tuned tomorrow for even more analysis on Nerdist News, where we’ll break down everything you need to know (and then some) about the trailer and beyond.
