If someone were to write a book on how to break the internet, the author would probably be Joss Whedon and his BFF’s at Marvel Studios. Perhaps there would be a chapter about Ellen Degeneres’ Oscar selfie.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer has infiltrated the internet, and it is awesome.

On last night’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, it was revealed that the trailer was going to be shown soon. However, perhaps the same hacker responsible for the Fappening, or “Hydra”, has leaked it and the trailer is now available online via TinyPic.  

Let’s break it down. There is a hell of alot of destruction, as is common in Marvel movies; however, the difference from The Avengers is that they show people suffering in that chaos, giving the trailer a way darker feel than it’s predecessor.

Not to mention the blaring horns and ominous chanting music, which you would expect from a Christopher Nolan movie, not a funny and quirky Marvel superhero flick.

No, Age of Ultron is most certainly much darker, and this trailer has no jokes, no comic relief, no wise-cracking Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), nothing. Only destruction, despair and suffering.  

Our heroes all have a constipated and worrisome look on their face. Stark says, “This is the end. The end of the path I started us on,” which leads me to believe that the Avengers are going through relationship drama; probably due to the fact that Ultron was Stark’s creation. They probably were not cool with that.

Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) is acting like an emo 13-year-old boy the whole trailer, and not in the “I’m always angry” Hulk-type of way, but more in the “I hate my parents” type of way. We can assume that something is probably going on with him, given the fact that he is also fighting with IronMan (Stark wearing his HulkBuster suit) in the trailer. If we didn’t have enough of Thor vs. Hulk in the first Avengers, our nerd-munchies will probably be satisfied by this brawl.  

Ultron is heard throughout the whole trailer talking about “Now I’m free. There are no strings on me,” and telling everyone else that they are just puppets. Let me tell you something about Ultron (James Spader), he is terrifying. His raspy and mechanical voice leaves a fear factor that Loki (Tom Hiddleston)  just did not have, and his metal exoskeleton leaves no room for morals or mercy.

Some of the sets are in what seems to be Northern Europe, including a Battle of the Bulge-like winter forest, and a city which does not resemble New York, so the locations will most likely vary at a global level.

The Scarlet Witch and QuickSilver are shown a lot, which is interesting since at the end-credit scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, they were imprisoned. They will most likely be a plot device, but I wouldn’t mind them kicking some ass here and there.

Oh yeah, and CAPTAIN AMERICA’S SHIELD IS SHOWN BROKEN. HEY WHEDON, WHAT’S THAT ABOUT? VIBRANIUM IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU? CHRIST.

Not much about the plot can be deduced, except conflict in Stark Tower, conflict amongst superheroes, and a ton of Ultron clones that seem hell-bent on killing anything that breathes, but that just kind of sums up Marvel movies doesn’t it.

All we can do now is hope that May 1 comes early next year, so we can really see what unfolds in what will definitely be another behemoth Marvel movie. Age of Ultron is no Avengers, it is much darker and serious, which I expect to be a nice change of pace from the first movie.  

Many questions are raised with this trailer, and hopefully all of them will be answered, but for now let’s just all enjoy this teaser. Oh Marvel, you tease.

ALSO WHERE IS THANOS AND THE INFINITY GAUNTLET? IS THAT NOT IMPORTANT ANYMORE OR…?
