Avengers Age Of Ultron Teaser Analysis Essay

Earlier today, Marvel unveiled the third trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. If you haven't seen it, your life absolutely depends on it so click right here and watch it. If you have seen the most glorious two minutes your eyes have been treated to since the last trailer, you're probably impatiently waiting for the movie to come out, like the rest of us.

In the mean time, let's take a closer look at that trailer, which was packed with new footage. 

Ultron is talking to the twins, Pietro (Quicksilver) and Wanda (Scarlet Witch), telling them how he was designed to save the world.

We know he considers himself a superior being, but here it looks like he thinks he is a king on a throne. And what's that draped over him? He goes on to tell the twins that he was supposed to give people hope.

But he's going to take all of the hope away. There are no (longer) strings on him.

The context or cause of this explosion is unknown, but later in the trailer it looks like Thor is here. Point is, the world is headed down a bad path.

Hello again, Ultron.

An entire building collapses. Destruction and mayhem continue.

But not at Avengers tower, at least for now. This is the first look at Stark Tower since the first Avengers. Looks like Tony has dropped the ego for a minute and become a team player, leaving only the "A" logo up, cough-Avengers Tower-cough. Or maybe he just didn't feel like replacing the other letters that fell off in the Battle of New York.

Stark's tinkering continues, even after he destroyed his suits in Iron Man 3.

He tells (according to the cut of the trailer) Banner that he wanted to give the world a shield.

Banner listens to Stark admitting his failure.

Ultron bots can be anywhere at anytime. Here they're popping up from underground!

Thor gets blown away by an exploding truck. This looks like the same location and truck from the shot earlier in the trailer.

Captain America failed at saving a car from going over the edge of a destroyed bridge and it looks like the passenger is still inside. This would be a big step for a Marvel film- letting a civilian die. Maybe Iron Man or someone flies in to save them (or maybe Spider-Man! Just kidding, probably not). Or maybe they meet their ultimate doom.

Rogers and Stark talk about why they fight for the world. Civil War anybody??

A little romance between Banner and Romanov, eh? I smell a love triangle.

Black Widow sarcastically reminds Stark how well he failed at protecting the world. What's more important about this scene, though, is that the team seems to be in hiding. Why else would they be in a regular old house instead of Avengers tower?

Sorry, folks. That's not Wolverine. That's Hawkeye preparing for battle. You can see his bow towards the bottom of the shot.

And here it is. The coolest shot of the entire trailer. The team comes barreling down a snowy mountain ready to whoop some a--. So. Cool.

Stark swipes Loki's scepter, containing the mind controlling Infinity Stone. Maybe he has to use it to get control of Hulk or Black Widow (who was see fall under Scarlet Witch's control in a few seconds).

The team listens to Nick Fury (according to the cut of the trailer, but in the next shot, Stark is standing next to Fury, so maybe not).

Fury gives a pep talk because saving the world apparently requires one.

Evacuate! Who's ship is that? I don't know. Where are they and where are they going? Not sure either, but they're probably running from Ultron or an impending battle.

Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America are face to face with Ultron! And Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver!

Cap sounds ready to give his life to save the world.

Another awesome shot after Cap throws his shield at Ultron who simply catches it in his chest cavity and dispatches it.

Ultron and the Twins admiring what is probably Ultron's work.

Hulk is no stranger to smashing on the side of buildings in this universe, but going head to head with Iron Man in Hulk Buster form? A lot of this show down has been exposed in trailers, but I have a feeling it's going to be even more epic on the big screen.

Scarlet Witch puts Black Widow under a mind control spell.

Quicksilver delivers Captain America a super-speed uppercut.

Captain America rides a flying, flipping car and the ground erupts (presumably with Ultron bots).

Thor challenges Ultron's might. But...look at that sexy new Iron Man suit to the right.

Bad move, Thor. Oh, and Ultron can fly! Whoa.

The first look at what looks like one of the most epic battle scenes of all time. While there's no Quicksilver to be seen, Scarlet Witch is fighting with the Avengers.

And of course, the first look at the Vision.

Hello, there, Vision.

Avengers: Age of Ultronblasts into theaters May 1, 2015.

The first trailer for "Marvel's The Avengers: Age of Ultron"leaked online on Wednesday evening. But in a baller move presumably out of Tony Stark's playbook, Disney and Marvel decided to combat the breach by releasing the official teaser in full, one week before it was scheduled to debut. (The studios had planned on premiering the initial "Age of Ultron" trailer on Oct. 28 during an episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.") Not that this wouldn't have been worth the longer wait: The trailer introduces the villainous Ultron (voiced by James Spader), offers glimpses of new superheroes, Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), and even provides a first look at Andy Serkis' mystery character:

The Avengers are present as well, but the big takeaway is Ultron's killer closing line: "There are no strings on me." Yes, we'll see you at the movies on May 1, 2015.
