At the ending of tonight’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Marvel revealed that the first teaser trailer from the highly anticipated film, Avengers: Age of Ultron, will be broadcast during next week’s episode “A Fractured House” on Tuesday, October 28th on ABC at 8pm CST.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is the sequel to the 2012 smash hit, The Avengers, and is set to be even bigger than it’s predecessor which currently still holds the title as the highest grossing superhero film from Marvel studios (and of all time, let’s be real). The plot is reportedly set to revolve around an old peacekeeping program that Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., tries to revive. However, in typical superhero movie fashion, the seemingly innocent plan goes wrong and suddenly Earth’s best heroes are called up on to save it once again from a villain (perhaps super villain, but the presentation remains to be seen).
Ultron will be played by the notorious James Spader and he will face off against all the familiar faces of the original Avengers – Robert Downey Jr. as the token genius, billionare, playboy, philanthropist, Iron Man; Chris Evans as super soldier, do-gooder Captain America; Chris Hemsworth, our favorite long-blonde-haired-coffee-loving demi-god, Thor; Mark Ruffalo as the recluse, mad, green scientist, Hulk; along with the rascally, spy/psychotherapist Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson and her beefcake sidekick with a sharp shooter eye, Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner. Obviously they could not be a team without their fearless, one-eyed, potty mouthed boss, Nick Fury, played by the one and only Samuel L. Jackson, and his right hand woman, Agent Maria Hill, played by Cobie Smulders.
The Avengers have to regroup after almost all having solo movies doing other things (sorry Hulk and Hawkeye, maybe next time) and not only defeat Ultron, but figure out what to do with newcomers introduced at the end of Captain America 2: Winter Soldier – Wanda and Pietro Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, respectively.
