Avengers: Age Of Ultron Comic-Con Teaser Lands Online
Meet the bad robot

Epic tidings, web people. The Comic-Con teaser for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron is finally online and, lo, it is LOUD. Adjust your expectations, because there's zero actual footage here - they haven't started filming yet and that would be magic beyond even Marvel's powers - but there is plenty of excitement and portent crammed into these few short seconds.



Grim tidings for poor Iron Man, whose helmet is crunched slowly into Ultron's evil robot bonce. There's also a reminder in those snippets of Avengers dialogue that the crew don't get along that well and have scattered to the four winds. "They’ve gone their separate ways,” Maria Hill tells Nick Fury. “They’ll come back,” Fury replies. “Because we’ll need them to.”

We will. Age Of Ultron will see Tony Stark and the gang taking on a brand new threat torn from the pages of Marvel comic lore and given a spit-and-polish origin story for the big screen. Ultron (James Spader) is a criminally insane, sentient robot dedicated to conquest and the extermination of humanity. He comes loaded with powers, including strength, agility, stunning intelligence, a rage-filled loathing for our heroes and an intent to destroy them. By the looks of this snippet, it's all Tony Stark's fault too, since he's apparently the robot's creator.

With Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and most likely Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner back, the new cast will also, possibly, include Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. They both remain TBC.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron starts shooting in January for a release date of May 1, 2015.
