Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer 2

A few days ago, Marvel released the second trailer to this summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron, on schedule this time with no Hydra problems. The trailer contains almost all new footage, and continues the ominous tone of the first one with a slow, creepy piano riff of "I've Got No Strings" playing in the background. And was it just me or did some of the CGI effects look... unfinished? Some of the textures didn't look quite right on the Hulk, Iron Man and Ultron, and some of their movements look kind of choppy. Or maybe I just need better Internet. They do have three and a half months left before the movie premieres (holy crap, it's that close?!?) so I'm sure things will be fine, but this is the first time I've been underwhelmed by anything Avengers related. Mind you, it's still my number one anticipated movie of the year, but maybe I've just got too much other stuff going on to worry about it now. In any case, if for some reason you haven't seen the trailer, here it is and a short breakdown afterwards.

"This vulnerable world... needs something more powerful than any of us."

More powerful than a super soldier? You're gonna regret saying that Mr. Stark.

More powerful than Hawkeye? Yeah, actually we could use that. A bow and arrow aren't gonna cut it this time around.

"Everyone creates the thing they dread."

Ultron has some serious daddy issues.

Ultron going for a leisurely stroll.

"Ultron?!?" No duh Bruce...

Tony doesn't look dumbfounded too often.

"In the flesh." So to speak...

The twins kind of got the shaft in this trailer.

It looks like Bruce is voluntarily Hulking-out here.

"No matter who wins or loses, trouble always comes around." And that trouble starts with a capital "BMF"

Speculation is this woman is Shuri, sister of Black Panther, which would be a nice tie in to the 2017 film. Considering his ties to Vibranium, the metal that originates from Wakanda (Black Panther's home nation) it makes sense that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is laying groundwork for future movies.

Tony's probably thinking to himself, "I should have put self-destructs in all those drones like I used to."

"You've meddled with something you don't understand." Thor sure can be cocky...

Scarlett Witch don't give a crap...

Tony get's thrashed around a lot...

"We have no place in the world." Way to be a Debbie Downer, Black Widow...

Ultron drones coming in the for the kill!

Requisite three-point hero stance. This is also a scene where I thought the animation was kind of sloppy.

Black Widow is armed and dangerous.

Look! Up in the sky!

Andy Serkis as who is presumed to be Ulysses Klaw. The resemblance is a little uncanny.

Cap is up to the challenge of taking on Ultron...

Uh-oh, Cap's gotta tag someone in right now...

Hulk calm...

A touching moment. Maybe they're reminiscing about that time Bruce Hulked-out on the helicarrier and almost killed her?

"I'm gonna tear you apart."

"From the inside." Anybody else think the animation here seemed a little off?

Thor getting hit by lightning, and it looks like he's redirecting it out of his body.

The genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist...

Has got nothing on People's Sexiest Man Alive...

Hulkbuster armor! Seriously, this is just nerd porn...

This is gonna make a great toy.


"Oh boy..." Black Widow channels her inner Sam Beckett.

Hulk is coming for you!!!

I like how Tony's heads-up-display seems a little bigger this time around. And much brighter.

Tony goes for the Rock Bottom!

Hulk need Visine!

Seriously, I want this toy...

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1st.

Go see it or else Ultron will turn around slowly...
