"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" Trailer Is Officially Here

Iron Man and Hulk are fighting, the new villain, Ultron, is running amok, and Thor is (briefly) naked! What is happening?!

The first trailer for Marvel Studios' Avengers: Age of Ultron debuted late Wednesday (after leaking online), and it is a doozy.

...Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)…

(Note that Fury has the eyepatch he lost in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and that Black Widow is one of only three characters to speak a line on-camera in the entire trailer — a line that possibly portends some significant changes to the Avengers roster.)


And his eerie voice dominates the trailer in voiceover.

"I'm going to show you something beautiful," he says. "Everyone screaming for mercy. You want to protect the world, but you don't want it to change. You're all puppets, tangled in strings. Strings." Ultron's ominous sentiment is subsequently reinforced by a child singing "I've Got No Strings," from Disney's 1940 feature animation classic Pinocchio. (Thanks, corporate synergy!)


There are also two new characters formally introduced in this new trailer: twin siblings Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, also known as Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).


Avengers: Age of Ultron, written and directed by Joss Whedon, opens May 1, 2015.
