A few weeks ago we saw evidence which suggested that Disney and Marvel Studios were preparing to release the third full-length trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron this week and that it would debut during the midseason premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC. It didn’t quite play out that way, but the initial estimate was at least close. Yesterday, ABC teased that instead the world broadcast premiere of a new Avengers 2 trailer would instead debut tomorrow evening during the premiere of American Crime.
But it’s going to come online quite a bit sooner, within the next few hours in fact…
Marvel has taken to the official Avengers Twitter account and are asking fans to get the #AvengersAssemble hashtag trending in order for them to release the latest trailer. This one, from the sneak peek and this little clip (click here) will certainly showcase more of the new character powers in action. Checking on on the percentage counter, we’ve watched it rise in just hours from 45% to nearly 90% so stay tuned!
What we’re really waiting for though, as new posters release daily for each Avengers: Age of Ultron character, is the official unveiling of Vision (Paul Bettany). He’s the one character Marvel has intentionally kept out of the forefront in the marketing and he hasn’t been seen in any TV spots or trailers yet. We’ll find out soon if that’s going to change as we also await the new posters for him, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
