So it all started earlier Wednesday when the teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked on the internet. The original Marvel response to the leak was a humorous quip blaming Hydra. Well at some point they just gave up the fight and dropped an HD version of the trailer on Youtube. The trailer was originally supposed to debut during an episode of Agents of SHIELD but a premiere isn’t gonna happen now.
The trailer features tons of hero shots and action but a dark tone is layered onto the trailer by a re-imagining of a theme from Pinocchio delivered in a haunting monologue by Ultron himself. Could this be the Empire Strikes Back installment of the Avengers trilogy? It sure seems like a possibility. Check out the trailer and see for yourself.
