New Avengers 2 Trailer

1/13/2015 Stephen Colbert 0 Comments


We have a second Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer!  This one provides continues to tease many of the same elements of the original trailer, and is comprised of a lot of already seen moments, with a little closer look at a few of them (but still no Vision reveal).

Thematically, this trailer seems to hit (and reinforce) many of the same points as the original, such as the "I've Got No Strings" music in the background, indicating not only Ultron's autonomy. but also his complete detachment from the world.

It's fairly clear the Pinocchio music is a strong driver of everything going on in this movie, so it'll be interesting to see just how many parallels are drawn.  I can already hear Tony Stark saying "You may not have strings, but you will never be a real boy!"

Speaking of Tony Stark, this trailer appears to make it very clear that it is in fact Tony Stark that we are seeing in the Hulkbuster armor fighting The Hulk, who appears to be under the spell of Elizabeth Olson's Scarlet Witch; however, I always go back to the Godzilla trailer from last year where there was a shot of the shelter door closing on Godzilla, only for it to actually be the MUTO in the final version.  Never take trailer reveals of this nature as gold (although the idea shown is definitely plausible, if not probable).

There's a lot of new minor teases beside that, but that'd best be saved for a full tear-down.  Overall, there is some cool stuff to be seen here, but I think it doesn't hit the thematic cord quite as effectively or hauntingly as the original trailer.  Nevertheless, it looks awesome.

Let me know what you think in the comments!
