Watch: First TV Spot Smashes in for 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'
"Trouble always comes around." The Avengers: Age of Ultron is only three months away, and considering the fact that the Super Bowl is right around the corner, we might get a glimpse of some new footage during the big game. But in the meantime, the Marvel Studios production has released the first TV spot for the comic book sequel, but this isn't meant to play during the Super Bowl. It's mostly footage we've already seen from the teaser trailer and the more recent second trailer, but there are some snippets of new action footage in there. It's certainly going to be brutal to see Bruce Banner and Tony Stark forced to fight.
Here's the first TV spot for Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron from Marvel:
Watch the most recent trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron right here.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is written & directed by Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Serenity). Earth's mightiest heroes must once again assemble when a super intelligent robot created by Tony Stark created to help fight any threats that might harm the world actually turns against him and the human race. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson all return in the sequel to Marvel's The Avengers with new names like Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen joining the team. Disney & Marvel release the film this summer on May 1st. You ready?
Must the continual drip drip drip of new footage continue up until the point we've seen all the goods? I have really become averse to watching trailers other than the first one, particularly for action/adventure movies such as the MCU films. It's like the studios want to give everything away before I even get to see the film! Seems so counter intuitive to me, but that's just one man's opinion. Guess it's working for them...(?)

The least they could do is cut it in confusing and misleading ways.

They should add random scenes that aren't in the movie...maybe even add weird characters just for the trailer. That would mess with people's heads.

That would be funny. Add Sub-Mariner sitting on his throne...the fanboys would go nuts. Imperius Rex!

I'd say even more random than Sub-Mariner. They should just make up a new character, like "Spaghetti Girl" or "Teddy Man"...leave the audience baffled.

I would be fine with that, anything to keep the actual movie fresh. Sucks avoiding trailers.

I just went back and looked at the first two official Avengers trailers, and the extended 1 minute Superbowl ad. The first trailer shows very little from the movie in terms of plot line and basically no spoiler or "money shot" material. You get a few quick glimpses of Loki, one fleeting shot of the Hulk, and a few shots of all the other cast members. The voice-over by Loki betrays nothing really, The second official trailer does reveal a few more money shots, sets up the team's friction dynamic, and focuses more on "the war" aspect. I didn't like that it showed a couple of key scenes (like when Hulk catches Iron Man). In a perfect world, the extended SuperBowl spot would have been the one and only trailer. That one is the one that got me ultra fired up for the movie (We have a Hulk...boom). It gives a good overview of the players, the action, and shows some really great moments of awesomeness, but none of those moments are really key (spoilery) moments. Ultimately, those three trailers didn't giveaway the movie for me. Those were the only things I watched and didn't read any spoilers either before sitting down for the movie. For AoU, I've only watched the official first tease and the trailer on the National Championship football game. I will probably watch the Super Bowl ad if there is one and I happen to catch it. My hope is that the things I've seen aren't too related to the plot line (maybe the Hulkbuster/Hulk fight is a bad dream of Tony's?). Unfortunately, I feel as though I already know more about this movie than I did the first Avengers...but maybe that's just because I know the storyline of the heroes and how they are shaping up in the MCU. I guess my question is the following statement: why do the studios feel like they have to keep feeding us little bits of the movie...as I say, drip drip drip? I paid to see the Avengers three times and it wasn't because of any preview. One preview was enough to get me excited, but I went three times because the movie was great and the experience blew me away. I think if I had saturated my mind with all the previews, tv spots, and spoiler write-ups, I probably wouldn't have had the same experience because I would have already known what was going on for the most part the first time I watched it.

I think you're referring to Sony and "Amazing Spiderman 2" because so far Marvel has only shown select scenes from the movie...and haven't shown anything new. If anything, the second trailer only showed continuation footage from those selected scenes from the first trailer. There's a lot they haven't shown us yet.
