Marvel has released the Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer for all you hungry comic book movie fans. It’s over 2 minutes of daaaayummmm! I would warn you of spoilers but I’m no psychic plus the trailer is public so how can I spoil it? I will say I add humor when I truly don’t have any idea what the scene represents. But, I am also critical of comic book movie plots so I may add some serious guesses in here.
Read at your own risk and feel free to give your opinion! Here we go!
We start with a city skyline with a visible tower to the right. I don’t know if this is real city or CGI. The voice over for this trailer is by Ultron himself played by James Spader. I’m a huge Blacklist fan so this partly ruins it for me since Ultron now equals Raymond Reddington in my head.
Here is a shot of protesters with Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). I’m going to assume this is before they were abducted by HYDRA since Quicksilver doesn’t have white hair yet. Flag in the back looks French.
The Avengers appear to be in a S.H.I.E.L.D Quinjet. Fans will have to wonder how this resource was obtained since Agent Coulson only has so many vehicles at his disposal based on latest Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episodes.
This scene in the trailer appears to show a beaten droid walking up to the Avengers currently out of uniform. I’m calling this out as a trailer trickery. I believe characters in the scene are getting the attention of something or someone else. I’m betting Ultron escapes Stark’s lab without interference from the Avengers.
The half destroyed android is most likely Ultron after reaching self-awareness. The mouth cavity screams Ultron plus the aggressive act of destroying another Avengers android. I’m calling it an Avengers android since the Avengers’ symbols is clearly visible on the chest. Why this particular android of Stark’s becomes Ultron is the question.
Looks like Ultron saves the twins from Hydra or their new partnership just kicked some booty. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver were also bad guys in the comic book so this makes sense, bad first then good.
The trailer gives off the sense that Tony Stark fails in some manner. Movie plot write-ups describe Stark creating an army of Ironmen to defend the world. So what defeats Starks army of Avenger androids? I’m also going to assume that Ultron is born after the event of Stark’s failure. The only other antagonist in the the movie is Hydra.
Here is Scarlet Witch angry in the middle of debris. Looks like she’s still a bad guy here and possibly hating on herself for her actions. It’s obvious that she and her brother will redeem themselves later in the movie.
This is so cool! Iron Man’s suit has a suit of its own to go against the Hulk, a.k.a. Hulkbuster. This reminds me of a Justice League plot line where Batman has a strategy to defeat his own teammates in case they choose to go evil. Does Stark have a contingency plan for each of the Avengers?
Quicksilver, Captain America and a black android in a train car. Is Quicksilver helping Cap or helping Ultron? I can’t imagine Ultron needing help. This android may also just be one of Ultron’s minions.
