The world’s greatest team of superheroes are about to reignite their collaboration following the grand success of their previous outing in 2012.
Marvel’s iconic team of Tony Stark / Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Steve Rogers / Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce Banner / Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) all return for the first official trailer for the upcoming superhero sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel themselves were forced to release the preview earlier following a leak on Youtube last night. Hydra are said to be responsible….
Directed once again by Joss Whedon, the follow-up sees the group having to overcome a dangerous new enemy in the form of the robotic Ultron (voiced by The Blacklist’s James Spader).
Further trouble also comes in the form of mutant siblings Quicksilver, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass, Godzilla), and Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Oldboy) as the pair are brought in by Ultron to assist him in his quest to destroy Earth.
Franchise regulars Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) are also back for the sequel with Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings series, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) making his Marvel debut as an unspecified character.
Age of Ultron will be released in the UK on April 24th 2015.
