Update: The leaked Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer has been pulled from several sources, but once the toothpaste is out of the tube, even superheroes can’t put it back. Marvel Entertainment has responded with an appropriately cheeky tweet (see below) and released the official trailer in HD.
It’s hard not to contain our excitement for the upcoming Joss Whedon joint, Avengers: Age of Ultron, especially with this new leaked trailer. It’s not the high-quality one you’ll likely see when Marvel Studios puts the official trailer up on YouTube, but it definitely looks legit.
The trailer gives us our first glimpse of baddie Ultron, voiced by James Spader, and features some creepy use of the Pinnochio song, “I Got No Strings” — a reference to the fact that Ultron is no longer a puppet, perhaps?
Check it out below:
Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled to grace movie theaters in May 2015, starring all your favorites from the original, record-breaking Avengers film, including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders.
The superheroes team up against Ultron in this second flick, and the character is voiced by James Spader, no less. Ultron is a high-tech supervillain who seems to have it out for the Avengers, since — in the comics at least — Ultron was created by Hank Pym, aka Ant-Man.
Ultron’s first appearance in comics was in 1968, and he’s also credited with being the first character in Marvel comic books to use adamantium (the super metal that powers X-Man Wolverine).
We’re pretty psyched to see some footage from the upcoming film, especially that Hulkbuster armor that lets Iron Man bulk up like a badass.
Marvel’s response to the leak?
