Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. try to lift Mjolnir in the new extended Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer
It’s all Marvel, all the time these days. Hot off the recent revelation of their slate of movies the next six years, Marvel debuted an extended trailer for AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON during last night’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ episode. If you remember, the trailer wasn’t supposed to be seen until last night, but after it leaked online early, Marvel decided to go ahead and release it. But that didn’t help their plan to boos Agents ratings and so they improvised and released an extended trailer, this time featuring several new shots, but mostly just a fun scene with our heroes trying to lift Thor’s hammer (Mjolnir). Of course, one of the biggest mysteries in the trailer was the inclusion of an extra female in that scene (when we saw it from an distant shot) and this trailer was careful not to reveal who that was. That should be fun to figure out when we get closer to next May.
The official synopsis for AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON: Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure. AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, Paul Bettany and Stellan Skarsgard. The Joss Whedon directed film hits theaters on May 1st, 2015.
