Boy, oh boy! The long wait for Avengers: Age of Ultron is almost over and marketing for the Marvel epic is about to reach a fever pitch. Last night, via Dr. Pepper’s twitter account, Marvel unveiled a new featurette that purports to reveal what makes the team so special and one of a kind. I have not watched it since, as some of you know, I try not to see too much of a film I’m excited about before it comes out. Tough to do, as a writer for a site like this, but these are the breaks.
I’m told this featurette may reveal some new footage, so if you’re one of those people that likes that kind of thing, check it out!
When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) jumpstarts a dormant peacekeeping program, things go terribly awry, forcing him, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the rest of the Avengers to reassemble. As the fate of Earth hangs in the balance, the team is put to the ultimate test as they battle Ultron (James Spader), a technological terror hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they encounter two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff.
Avengers: Age of Ultron, directed Joss Whedon, will come out May 1.
