Another trailer for this year’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” debuted Monday night during college football’s national championship game.
Metal mega-villain Ultron (James Spader) looks to be in a really, really bad mood, but so are Marvel’s heroes – Hulk, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor and Hawkeye – who seem to be getting on each other’s nerves.
“Everyone creates the thing they dread,” Ultron/Spader declares. “I'm going to tear you apart ... from the inside.”
The Joss Whedon-directed sequel hits theaters on May 1.
Writing for Forbes magazine, Scott Mendelson notes that this is the third “Ultron” trailer that Marvel and Walt Disney have released since the first teaser leaked back in October.
“At this rate, not counting a possible Super Bowl commercial in three weeks, we’ll get around seven trailers between October 22nd, 2014 and April 23rd, 2015,” the magazine gripes.
“Now Avengers 2 trailers make for good click bait, and I’ll take them as they are offered, but there is still a part of me that wishes Disney wouldn’t be so trigger-happy.”
