Ultron is the focus of the newest trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron — with a brief recap of his origin and James Spader using his creepiest voice to lay out the evil AI’s plan to destroy Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Lots to love about this trailer, which its action-packed scenes and intriguing teases — do Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) hook up? Do any of the big guns die? Who wins, Hulk or Iron Man in Hulkbuster armor? (Just so you know, Uncle Joe firmly believes that Hulk should win, but how it plays out on film is anyone’s guess.)
And I think writer/director Joss Whedon is going to really buff up the Widow in this film and show us why she belongs on the team. She’s got new weapons, some great lines — and her motorcycle launching out the quinjet is still one of my favorite visuals from all the trailers.
Finally, Whedonites know Jossus loves his strong female characters, and the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) will definitely be playing a huge role in the proceedings.
