As if the anticipation for Joss Whedon’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” wasn’t high enough, a new international TV spot has been released showing more action than we’ve seen so far. The Avengers assemble once again, showcasing some pretty intense beat downs in the new teaser.
The blurb opens with a pretty cool shot of Captain America (Chris Evans) kicking his famous shield into the air. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) uses his might hammer, Mjolnir, to knock it into an Ultron robot with impressive speed and accuracy. The hits don’t stop there (literally) as the next shot cuts right to the Captain drop kicking said shield into another Ultron robot, decapitating it completely – Don’t mess with a super soldier.
While it didn’t have an excess of new footage or plot details, the international TV spot for the highly anticipated super hero-packed sequel highlights the intense action and battle scenes that fans can expect when the movie hits theaters on May 1 - and not just the friendly fighting. Perhaps one of the longest teased and most hyped fights that the “Age of Ultron” spot puts at center stage is a throw down between The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the newest armor suit from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), the Hulkbuster. The sequence was first teased during Marvel’s ABC TV Special “Assembling a Universe,” in which early concept art was shown of the two heroes locked in battle. The first trailers showed even more of the fight and now the TV spot sees the opponents exchanging punches while scaling a skyscraper.
There are a number of reasons why these two allies would want to duke it out. An image from the first trailer, which appeared again in the below video, shows the Hulk with bloodshot red eyes. As we know from the first movie, a Hulk that’s lost his temper will attack whoever is closest. As CinemaBlend notes, it’s possible something sets big green off and Stark has to stop him from rampaging through a street crowded with civilians. However, more conspiracy-leaning fans note that the blood shot eyes could be the result of some mental tampering done by the new character Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).
The Witch has the power to manipulate people’s minds, something that she showed off on Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) in the third trailer for the movie that dropped earlier this month. From the international TV spot, it looks like fans can expect to see a lot of cool super-powered tag teaming between the Avengers when they’re not too busy beating each other up.
