avengers age of ultron- BLACK WIDOW

Yesterday the second movie trailer for Avengers Age of Ultron was released by Marvel Entertainment and it’s a doozy. The trailer expounds slightly on visuals from the first trailer and adds a few things here and there. (Both trailers are contained at the above link)

Sure, it’s mostly the same but different, but it’s the stuff that drooling fans are wanting.

This movie will bring what is known as Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a close, leaving the door open to the next phase of movies that will introduce more Marvel comic characters (and Disney princesses) and take advantage of some we’ve been introduced to over the last few movies.

But with the release of the newest trailer, boy-howdy, are the fan sites going crazy digging into the trailer and trying to explain everything away and what it all means.

Or in movie-goer code: Spoilers?

They can’t technically be spoilers since the various sites are only taking guesses at things, but some of the guesswork does seem spot on. At least from an uneducated take on the scenes everyone is tearing apart.

Then again, as we get closer to the May 1 opening date, I am quietly worried that Marvel (Disney) will populate the web with a ton of trailers giving up much of the story, much like the did with Iron Man 3., dropping up to 24 different preview clips and bits on the public.

I personally like a teaser or two, but not so much so that half the story is given away or what could be cool surprises, spoiled by the studio.

But that’s my gripe. Nothing more.

Back to the fanboy sites tearing apart the trailer:

I think one of the best tear downs comes from Slash Film, where they’ve snagged quite a few stills and put ideas, captions and guesses underneath the stills.

To be honest, Peter Sciretta writes the piece with an underlying sense of humor and practicality. Under one still of Tony Stark, he writes that,

“Ever have that moment when you know you’ve made a mistake, and you hope that everyone you work with won’t realize how bad the mistake was, and then the mistake shuffles into the conference room leaving greasy footsteps everywhere and you’re pretty sure it’s about to promise to murder everything? That’s more or less what Stark has going on right here.”

Under a still of the Iron Man Hulkbuster suit:

“That is one nasty-looking suit of armor. It also looks a bit like hubris.”

Like I said, pretty insightful peppered with a decent sense of good, humorous timing. Reminds me of Joss Whedon’s humor style actually. And I find that refreshing, where Peter explains things while keeping it light.

This great pictorial demonstration of theory can be found at { Avengers-2-photos/ }

Then there’s Movie Pilot who touches on some “reveals” in the trailer… or something possibly hidden in plain sight that might mean something outside of the obvious imagery.

Here they touch on that we’ll be seeing some things regarding The Black Panther’s realm, on Thor being sent or going to a location to find answers to the Ultron problem, plus some background visuals that are (they believe), hinting at some past issues regarding things like…

Well, if they’re right, they’re spoiling some things and I like the logic they use to get to their guesses, so rather than ruining things for you, I’ll let you go there yourself if you want…
