Avengers: Age of Ultron TV Spot Offers Almost a Minute of New Footage

Avengers: Age of Ultron TV spot

Marvel played us all for fools and as a result we’ve now seen nearly an additional minute of Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

A new Avengers: Age of Ultron TV spot hit the web earlier today. Big deal, right? TV spots are typically cobbled together from previously released footage for public consumption and rarely offer anything we haven’t seen before.

That’s not the case with this Avengers: Age of Ultron TV spot. For starters it runs a full minute in length, twice the length of a typical :30-second spot. By my count there are at least 45 seconds of footage from the film we haven’t seen before packed into the spot including another “first” following our initial glimpse of Vision in the final Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. The same trailer that we thought was our final look at footage from the sequel before it arrived in theaters. And now we’ve seen more.

The “first” I refer to is Quicksilver serving up a few words of dialogue. Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s rendition of the character speaks in a heavy eastern European accent. It sounds nothing like the actor and fits perfectly with the character’s comic origins in a fictional eastern European country. Now I wonder what Elizabeth Olsen sounds like as Scarlet Witch.

The overall tone of this new Avengers 2 footage plays more comedic than the previous trailers. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson help lighten the tone with quips and snark as Ultron (James Spader) and his swarming drones try to wipe out the human race. Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye is still all business though.

With roughly five more weeks until Avengers: Age of Ultron flies into theaters on May 1, I wonder what other surprises Marvel has in store? I’d just assume not lay eyes on any additional footage before seeing the film in its entirety at this point.
