'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Trailer Makes Even Non-Comic Book Fans Geek Out (VIDEO)

avengers age of ultron trailerKudos to Disney and Marvel for this badass move: The trailer for the highly, highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron was leaked Wednesday evening. It wasn't supposed to come out until a week later during an episode of S.H.I.E.L.D. So it seems the executives said Screw it! and released the entire thing in full. They hilariously even went on to blame Hydra for the leak.

But the official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron is everything a fan could hope for and more.

In case the title didn't give it away, the Avengers are yet again summoned to try to defeat Ultron, a supervillian and Stark creation with a robotic body and artificial intelligence who wants to wipe out the human race (because of course).

The A-list cast is reprising their roles from the first major blockbuster, but the trailer also gives us a glimpse at Ultron (voiced by James Spader), as well as new superheroes Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).

Prepare yourself and geek out:

Wowowowowowowowow. Where to even begin?

Ultron looks badass. He does not disappoint. There's an Ironman vs. Hulk fight. Who the heck is Andy Serkis going to be? Captain America's shield isn't supposed to break! And it's Thor lying next to it! Plus, is that a flashback? Why are the new superheroes going to Ultron's lair?

As most of you are probably well aware by now if you're reading this, Tony Stark had a part in the creation of Ultron (in the comics, it was Ant-Man). You can see in the trailer that the Avengers are defeated and are forced to go underground -- that's why they're all looking so glum. It's a much more bleak, darker trailer than it seems the first film ever was. But hopefully it didn't lose all of the humor and banter ("That man is playing Galaga!") from its predecessor.

At least Marvel's Twitter account kept its sense of humor:

But come on, nothing makes up a good trailer like a bunch of explosions, cars being thrown about, a shirtless Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth, a villian monologue, lots of random people screaming, the Hulk seemingly having a tender moment, hearing a creepy version of "I've Got No Strings" -- this movie is gonna be epic. As the first film was so popular among everyone, whether or not they were comic book/superhero fans, this one appears as if it's gearing up to do exactly the same. Let's hope that it lives up to the hype!

Avengers: Age of Ultron will premiere May 1, 2015!

What do you think of the trailer for the sequel?
