Five things that will break all Marvel fans regarding the Age of Ultron teaser trailer.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer got released a week earlier than expected, exciting all us Marvelites. My friends and I were in London at the time and we scrambled around for wifi in the hotel when we heard, squealing to the extent that our teacher came and told us off… By the end we were quite literally hiding behind the furniture. Here I will list five things in the trailer that are sure to give you so many feels you’ll be rocking back and forth.
1) The Hulkbuster/ Bruce Banner in a straitjacket
If you aren’t aware of what the Hulkbuster is, it’s basically an Iron Man style suit that Tony Stark built in order to restrain The Hulk should it run wild. It’s seen in Iron Man when Obidiah strikes Tony and harnesses the power of the arc reactor. Long story short, when the Hulkbuster is present, shit is going down – it’s a last resort protocol. Furthermore, Bruce was in a straightjacket. As a dedicated Avengers fan and a general Bruce devotee, this broke my heart because it can only mean he’s having trouble controlling The Hulk.
2) Captain America’s shield split in two
Another thing that broke my heart because I absolutely love Cap, is the shot of his shield broken in half. The shield is made of Vibranium, an unbreakable material so naturally, my reaction was: HOW?! This image was probably used in the trailer to provoke this response and to make the villain seem even stronger and more intimidating. The sad truth is that Marvel is going to kill off Captain America in the near future (yeah I don’t want to think about it either), most likely in the third Captain America film, so this could possibly be his weak point leading to his demise.
3) Natasha’s past
When we see ballet cuts, it can only mean one thing: Natasha Romanoff’s backstory. Fans have been craving this since the first Avengers film and now we’re finally getting somewhere. This is sure to provoke intense emotion and really rivet audiences.
4) The Thor/Iron Man confrontation
At one point in the trailer, we see Tony Stark get attacked by Thor. This suggests a conflict in the group dynamic. As a fan there’s nothing more crushing than when the strongest members of the team are sparring, especially with the Avengers when they work so well as a unit and you just want to scream at them and make them work together…
5) Ultron sounds like a distorted JARVIS
For those who don’t know, the baddie of Age of Ultron is going to be a being called Ultron, created by Tony Stark that manifests inside his own supercomputer, JARVIS. When you listen to Ultron’s voice, he sounds like a very distorted version of JARVIS, like he’s still in there somewhere. I for one found this very disturbing and feels-provoking.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron will undeniably render all fangirls speechless; I just hope we get some more answers soon!
