With Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting theaters on May 1, we’re nearing the homestretch to the premiere. Just over a week left until April, and then May is one month away! Ugh, okay… that still sounds like a terribly long time to wait before we get to assemble.
In the meanwhile, though, we can keep our sanity intact by geeking out over the trailers being pumped out by Marvel. Yesterday saw the debut of a new one-minute TV spot, and we’ve got some revealing takeaways pulled from the video and presented to you now in GIF format.
In the first Avengers, it took the team more than two hours to work cohesively enough to pull off sexy ensemble action shots like this. It looks like the second movie picks up with the Avengers acting as a well-oiled machine. Never underestimate the bonding power of a good shawarma.
Here’s a glimpse of Quicksilver doing his thing, raising hopes that we’ll get more of the special effects that made him the highlight of X-Men: Days of Future Past. This looks like a typical day on the New York subway, just another guy who smells so bad that you can see stink lines, rudely pushing past people.
Back at Asgard Elementary, Thor used to clean up at pogs.
We’ve still got Captain America showing that you can get a lot done with ’40s era super strength. I think the best part about this moment is the big smile on Cap’s face after obliterating the enemy with his motorcycle.
Meanwhile, Black Widow manages to narrowly avoid getting her head plasma blasted off her body several times in under three seconds. Unless S.H.I.E.L.D. has some laser proof conditioner in their bag of tricks, Natasha really needs a helmet.
