New Footage from AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Will Air During AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
Earlier this week Marvel released the trailer for Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron after it leaked online, and fans loved what they saw. When I posted the poster for the film, I mentioned that it would be interesting to see if the studio offered fans a different cut of the trailer or some new footage during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. next week, which is when the trailer was originally supposed to air. Well, that's exactly what Marvel is going to do!
Marvel Studios has revealed that during the next episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. we will get even more footage! Then, during ABC's Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop! special, they will show off even more footage! So we've got lots of new Avengers: Age of Ultron stuff coming our way.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air on ABC at 9:00pm ET/PT on October 28th, and the special is set to premiere on November 4th. In case you miss them, we'll make sure to get them up on the site as soon as they're available. Who knows? Maybe that footage will leak early as well.
When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
Avengers: Age of Ultron hits the big screen on May 1st, 2015.
