Everything Is Falling Apart In The New "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" Trailer

Things really, really don't look good for Marvel Studios' team of superheroes.

Posted on

The second trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron debuted on Monday, and if the first trailer didn't already make it clear, things are much darker and more fractured for Marvel Studios' band of superheroes this time out.

It doesn't reveal any major plot developments we didn't know before...

...namely that Ultron (James Spader) is a big, bad, super-intelligent robot who hates humanity, and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is responsible for bringing him into the world. So, good going, Tony.

Or who the heck Andy Serkis is playing in the film, since he keeps popping up in these trailers.

While Serkis is staying mum on the role, there is some speculation that he is playing Marvel villain Ulysses Klaw, who most consistently antagonizes Marvel hero Black Panther. Klaw is big into mining vibranium, the substance used to create Captain America's shield. The material is native only to the fictional African nation of Wakanda, home to Black Panther.

As it happens, Marvel Studios recently announced that Chadwick Boseman would play that role not just in a Black Panther movie (due to hit theaters in Nov. 2017), but in next summer's big Marvel Studios movie, Captain America: Civil War.

Which brings us to…

…whoever this person is.

Is it a citizen of Black Panther's nation of Wakanda, possibly one of the "Adored Ones"? Is it Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), otherwise barely featured in this new trailer? Or is it Vision (Paul Bettany), a character who has remained virtually MIA from official Avengers first looks, but whose appearance — dark skin, with a stripe running down the center of his face — has leaked out anyway?

  1. Who do you think the latest mysterious figure in the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" trailer is?

    It is ~obviously~ someone connected to Black Panther.
    I think it's Scarlet Witch? Maybe? If you squint?
    Looks a heckuva lot like Vision to me.
    I have no effing clue, but I can't wait to find out.
