avengers age of ultron- HULK

When the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron came out, there was quite a bit of trouble brewing in the background. But Disney/Marvel played it pretty cool so that initially, no one was the wiser.

When the trailer came out, originally, it was a low res version that was leaked to the public but a few hours later Disney/Marvel released the high res version ahead of schedule, despite announcements that the trailer would air during ABC’s Agents of SHIELD.

Instead, they released a slightly modified version of the trailer during the show that included the much talked about funny scene with Thor’s hammer and the group trying to lift it.

And Disney/Marvel (DisMar) played the leak pretty smooth, saying HYDRA did it. But it was anything but calm and joking in the offices of the studio.

Turns out that there is a digital head hunt for the person responsible for leaking the trailer and I think they are in big trouble. DisMar has gone so far as to have subpoenaed Google for the IP address of the user of the YouTube and Google+ accounts responsible for the trailer leak.

This could be an interesting battle alone, considering how Google takes a stand and holds it’s data close to their chest, no matter who comes knocking.
