“I’m going to show you something beautiful”. Marvel leaks and then officially releases first look at Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Earlier this evening, the teaser trailer for next summers Avengers: Age of Ultron movie was leaked online and then quickly taken down. Shortly after that, rather than continue to contact sites that were posting the video, Marvel officially released the first look preview. Not exactly sure if this was intentional or a publicity stunt, nevertheless, we got our first look at the second installment of earths mightiest heroes. There were a few things that stood out and caught my attention….lets review.
1.Spader’s Ultron - First thing we get to hear is the voice of Ultron from James Spader, and I love it! I’ve been reading Avengers comics since the eighties and I’ve always had this idea of how Ultron sounded. It was definitely more robotic than what we hear from Spader, but it’s menacing, it’s dark, and it works! Ultron goes on to say, “You’re all puppets, tangled in strings”, as we hear a much more sinister version of the song “I’ve got no strings” from the Pinocchio movie, as Ultron warns…”There are no strings on me”. Oh, and we also get to see Ultron’s Army.
2.What’s up with Dr. David Banner? We see him (played by Mark Ruffalo) cringing in a seated position, looking frightened and almost defeated. Later we see him struggling to walk in snowy wooded area. We do see the Hulk in several battles scenes later in the video, so here’s hoping for more “HULK SMASH” that we all enjoyed so much in the last film.
3. Iron Man Goes Hulkbuster! - So apparently Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) will put on the infamous “Hulkbuster” armor and battle it out with his Avengers teammate. Now this could be Ultron controlling the armor himself, but still…there is reason to believe that this is Hulk and Iron Man going mano y mano.
4.Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - Hell Yeah! Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, aka Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Scarlet Witch was one of my favorite Avengers during her eighties run, along with Vision (who is visibly not present in this teaser). Still, I can’t wait to see the three of them along side the rest of group.
5. Cap’s Shield - That’s not good. Near the end of the video we see Captain America’s shield…broken.
6.. Civil War - So where will this movie take us? What’s next? We’ve heard now that Civil War will be incorporated in upcoming films. It may start with Captain America 3, and now we are hearing some rumors that it may continue onto a fourth Iron Man movie. The Civil War story line is what got me back into comics in 2005 (along with House of M). It’s a plot that divides heroes in the Marvel Universe after a tragedy involving the superhero group The New Warriors, killing the majority of the group as well as children in a nearby elementary school. This prompts federal legislation, as the government passes the Superhuman Registration Act, essentially forcing heroes to conform to mandated regulations, and forcing them to reveal their secret identities. A very political and divisive event, Civil War splits former teammates onto opposing sides. The good news here is if everything works out…we could finally see cooperation between Marvel and Sony….bringing Spider-Man and the X-Men over to the Marvel movie universe!
