At San Diego Comic Con, attendees were treated to a sneak peak of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it’s very different from what you’re about to see. Marvel announced that they’d be premiering the first movie trailer during Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. next Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. After a version of the trailer was leaked earlier today, Marvel has now officially released the trailer on its own YouTube channel.

The new movie is very, very dark. Tony Stark has tried to restart a dormant civil defense program, but it goes bad quickly. Now they have to deal with Ultron, who seems to have the Avengers in a very bad place. There are a lot of flash frames of collateral damage, plus an amazing short sequence featuring Stark’s “Hulkbuster” armor – the very existence of which raises all sorts of questions.

Will humanity survive Ultron?  Will the Avengers?  This trailer does what trailers are meant to do.  It whets the appetite.

Avengers: Age of Ultron will star Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, James Spader as the voice of Ultron, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver.  It’s due out May 2015.
