The last ‘Avengers 2’ trailer was pretty fantastic, but like all good teases, it left us wanting more. One cannot subside on a single Hulkbuster GIF alone! Well today our Marvel overlords have granted us the sweet release we so desperately need in a brand new ‘Avengers 2’ trailer and it was well worth the wait. Because if you thought the previous Hulkbuster sequence was something...wait until you see this.
The new trailer debuted during ESPN’s College Football National Championship (love that corporate synergy!) and will also be in theaters with ‘Jupiter Ascending’ next month. And, even if you can’t tell your Oregon Ducks from your Mighty Ducks or the Buckeyes from Bucky Barnes, you’ll appreciate this ‘Avengers 2’ trailer, which takes the action and stakes of the original trailer and doubles down.
There's a lot to chew on in this new trailer, Hulkbusting aside, including another new, menacing look at Andy Serkis character (is that you, Klaw?) and this mysterious woman who may or may not be a Wakandian:
Maybe just as interesting is who we didn't see in the trailer: still no Vision! Which, we may be in the minority on, but we like it. He's a big, bold new character and that reveal should be saved for as long as possible (regardless of all the toy promo images). We still haven't seen any of the film's final battle, which is a pretty amazing thing. Imagine all this and this isn't even the biggest part?
If this isn’t enough hot ‘Avengers’ action for you, you can rewatch the first ‘Avengers 2’ trailer, the extended trailer, an ‘Avengers 2’ clip and the advance trailer for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. WHEW.
For those who are really behind on the ‘Avengers 2’ hype train, the official plot synopsis:
When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
‘Avengers 2’ opens in theaters on May 1.
