A second look at Avengers: Age of Ultron has aired alongside the most recent episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. That ridiculously cool first trailer was originally intended to air with the series, but Marvel was forced to release it early when it was leaked online. Thankfully, Marvel has still gone ahead and given us another look at the film, presumably in an effort to put an end to those dwindling ratings.
Regardless of the whys and hows, we’ve got more of Avengers: Age of Ultron to check out, and it’s as expected: awesome. There are many snippets that we saw in the first trailer, but there are more than a few gems that make this more than worth a watch. Did Cap just wriggle Thor’s Mjolnir?
Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Andy Serkis, and Samuel L. Jackson.
