How Many Avengers Does it Take to Lift Thor’s Hammer? Find Out in the New AGE OF ULTRON Preview!

After Hydra agents seized the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron and leaked it online last week, Marvel immediately followed it with an official HD release, fans were left wondering what was left to debut on last night’s episode of Agents of SHIELD. Fortunately, the answer arrived in the form of a preview scene, in which our heroes, while celebrating their awesomeness, demonstrate their limitless levels of testosterone by attempting, one after the other, to raise mighty Mjolnir, the hallowed hammer of Thor. Needless to say, their efforts amounted to nil. But their revelry is soon interrupted by the introduction of the film’s villain, Ultron himself, quoting, as he does in the trailer, Pinocchio‘s “I’ve Got No Strings” in spectacularly creepy fashion. Now we’ve got the whole scene just waiting for you to watch and rewatch it!

Nice to see Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes palling around with the team — and everyone looking tanned, rested, and ready for the perils that await them…

So what did you think of last night’s preview? Are you excited for Phase III? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and don’t miss Jessica Chobot’s breakdown of Marvel’s announcements from yesterday’s Nerdist News:

    TRENDING: Steve Rogers tugs at Thor’s Hammer. It moves a little, which concerns Thor. (long live the summer of George)

  2. simon says:

    i dont understand why thor angry at tony

    • Tim says:

      Hm… Probably because Tony built Ultron (it was actually AntMan but I guess Marvel isn’t going that route) and when Ultron realized that he had to wipe out humanity Thor probably blames Tony a little for it.

    • Steven-John Okpara says:

      Wait for the movie 

  3. SIMEON says:

    Look what happen when try Captain !!!!!!!! 

  4. Lakoda says:

    Okay. But Cap is supposed to be able to lift the hammer.

  5. Mickard says:

    Am I the only one that noticed that when Cap grabbed the hammer it moved just a millimeter or so, and Thor glanced at the hammer with a funny look. I figure if anyone would be “worthy” it would be Captain America.

  6. Mike says:

    James freakin Spader

  7. JohnR says:

    Didn’t catch Ultron quoting “When You Wish Upon A Star”, only “I Have No Strings”, also from Pinocchio, same as the original trailer edit.

  8. D says:

    I loved the nod to the comics when Steve tried the hammer and it budged ever so slightly. The look on Thor’s face was priceless.

  9. otto says:

    it looks like a beer commercial 

  10. It’s not “When You Wish Upon A Star”, it’s “I’ve Got No Strings”.

    OH MY! This didn’t happen on catch up tv version of agents of shield in the UK
