Unlike a lot of other big 2015 releases, Marvel isn’t waiting til Sunday to unveil its first Avengers: Age of Ultron TV spot. It’s here right now, and it features a Super Bowl-worthy showdown between Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Not to mention appearances by Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Ultron (James Spader), and more.
Marvel unveiled the first Avengers Age of Ultron TV spot on YouTube. It’s admittedly short on new footage, but it’s exciting and epic enough to make up for it.
I hate this. Not in the sense that I think this is a bad trailer, or a bad plotline, or a bad movie — I think it’s a great trailer, and I hope it’ll be a great plotline and a great movie — but in the sense that it makes my heart hurt to see the Science Bros turn on each other. What happened to the good old days of chugging beers and grappling with Mjolnir at Tony’s?
Avengers: Age of Ultron lands in theaters May 1. Joss Whedon directed. Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Don Cheadle, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgård, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Paul Bettany also star.
