There’s only 58 days until the premiere of Avengers 2, the long-awaited sequel to 2012’s beloved superhero epic. But that means there’s still 58 days until the premiere of Avengers 2. Two freaking months! When you’re as excited for a movie as we are for this one, that’s a long time to wait. To pass the time, we made a whole mess of GIFs of all the best moments in the new (and supposedly final) trailer for Age of Ultron.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier directing duo Joe and Anthony Russo have established themselves quite nicely over at Marvel Studios—not only are they directing Captain America: Civil War, but it’s been all-but-confirmed that the pair will helm both parts of Avengers: Infinity War.

There is surely going to be a lot of wild stuff in Avengers 2, but nothing in any of the trailers has gotten the internet’s attention quite like Tony Stark’s “Hulkbuster” armor.
