Is it May 1 yet? The new “Avengers” movie is almost here, and Marvel has released yet another trailer to keep fans sane. Like the others, the new teaser is jam packed with action … but this one features a frightening threat from villain Ultron (James Spader).
“The Avengers … How can you possibly stop me?” Ultron asks in the clip as other robots rip apart the streets. It’s a solid question for the superheroes to answer.
For those unfamiliar with the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” plot, Ultron is a “self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence” created by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Stark’s goal for Ultron was to be a “peacekeeping program” after the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. However, his plan goes awry when Ultron begins to think for himself and finds humans to be his main threat. He forms his own army to eradicate humans from Earth.
“Alright,” Ultron says in another scene, waving on his army. “It’s time for some fun.”
The trailer shows Iron Man in action with Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) as they attempt to stop yet another menace. But it doesn’t look like robots are the only problem they have to deal with in the upcoming flick. An action sequence shows the group – and newcomers Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) – fighting men in army gear in the snowy woods.
“Avengers: Age of Ultron” hits theaters on May 1. Watch the new trailer below:
