What If Marvel's 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' Was Released in 1995?

The Avengers: Age of Ultron in 1995

There was a time when bringing something like Marvel's cinematic universe to the big screen was an insane and seemingly impossible idea. But that doesn't mean there weren't several attempts to bring The Avengers to the big screen for decades before it actually happened. Well, Vulture decided to commission editor Sleepy Skunk (who delivers year-end cinematic retrospectives that we feature) to create a trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron if it was getting released in 1995, and the result is just awesome. Complete with cheesy voiceover, the old Disney logo and video tape tracking issues, it's a fun little video. Watch it!

Here's the trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron from 1995 (via Vulture):

    And I suddenly remember how bad trailers used to be.
    • People in 2035 will be saying that about 2015. "What's with all the BWOMMM's?!?"
      • Tuomas Lassila
        Yeah that's likely me after 20 years :3

    Is it too nerdy that I recognize the "floppy-disk-ejected-from-the-PowerMac" to be from The Net starring Sandra Bullock?
  • SallySpider
    I'd actually go and see this movie

    The people involved spent some time on this, but they have absolutely NO IDEA of how to process footage to look like bad quality old stuff. Ugh. THIS is how you do it:
    Needs more Don LaFontaine. // RIP DLF.
  • Actually that makes me even more interested in seeing it!
  • HyperJ
    Do you really think that Key & Peele used an old camera? I suggest you look closer. No,all it takes it understanding what made old footage "bad", and how video signals deteriorate. They didn't even bother to make it 4:3 aspect ratio.
    • Snev De la Fontaine
      I looked closer, and I think you're right. Bravo to them though, because it's often much more noticeable even in bigger budget films when they edit modern-day camera-footage to make it appear old.
  • Um, where's the tracking in the begining??
