The final trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has been released tonight, and with it comes some additional footage that hasn’t been shown before.
Most of the bonus footage is of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) kicking butt, so there are no complaints here! She gets some great moments in the new trailer, but I must admit that the introduction to each character is a little cheesy and cringeworthy, but hey it still looks cool right?
The early trailers hinted at a serious, darker affair than the first film, but the more recent trailers and TV spots have looked more like an all out action film, complete with one liners and a general sense of fun and adventure. I don’t mind this, but a more serious film would have been better, in my humble opinion. But hey, this is just another tease, and one clearly aimed at getting fans in the mood for mayhem when the film gets released in a few weeks.
“Avengers: Age of Ultron” will bring the Marvel Universe’s biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with “Marvel’s The Avengers” director Joss Whedon returning to write and direct the sequel. “Marvel’s The Avengers” was released in 2012 and went on to earn $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the third-largest grossing movie of all time.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron will Hulk-smash its way into UK cinemas on 23rd April.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
