With less than a week to go until the U.S. release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are getting more attention than ever. The film is already playing overseas and breaking international box office records, so while expectations rise as the release date grows closer, early reviews and new clips will have to suffice until then.
The last clip to be released gave us our first look at Vision in action, and now a few more clips have been released showcasing Captain America, Thor, Scarlett Witch, Quicksilver and Ultron.
The first clip (above) shows Captain American and Thor working together as two cars plummet off of a broken bridge, while the second clip (below) shows an early interaction between the Maximoff twins and Ultron as he sits on his throne.
We’ve recently seen the humorous dynamic of Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans off screen, but haven’t really had a chance to see their characters interact, so it’s refreshing to see a similar humor carry over (even in the most dire of situations). We’re also given a good look at Cap’s new magnetic shield technology as he calls it to his arm (and brings an Ultron robot along for the ride).
The second clip offers a look at Ultron’s attempt to recruit Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver and reveals a little bit about the Chitauri Scepter from The Avengers and how Tony Stark was able to get his hands on it (we see him grab hold of it in trailer #3). We also get to watch Ultron deliver a snippet of a speech, showcasing a style of dialogue that may have attracted James Spader to the role in the first place.
More and more information for Age of Ultron continues to be released every day which makes one wonder – with all of the clips, featurettes, interviews, casting announcements and plans for future installments, is too much being spoiled? Obviously there’s a greater amount of marketing that goes into a huge blockbuster as appose to a smaller film, but it does feel like a lot more details are surfacing than usual.
Spoilers aside, Age of Ultron looks like it will be jam-packed with intense action, interesting monologues and high-octane situations (even more so than the first) and it will be interesting to see how Joss Whedon handles twice the amount of characters and an overall bigger film (something that played a part in his decision to not return for Infinity War).
Age of Ultron is right around the corner and will possibly be the biggest box office opening ever, and though details are being spoiled, the film should still prove itself to be a solid installment in a long line of Marvel films.
