No, your calendar is not lying to you: Avengers 2 is less than two months away. A new trailer arrived yesterday. Tickets are already on sale. It’s happening! To drive the point home, a few new featurettes on the making of the film have arrived online, giving us a behind-the-scenes look at the making of one of the most anticipated sequels of all time.
Avengers: Age of Ultron
If you’re a Marvel fan and preparing for Avengers: Age of Ultron, chances are you’re thinking now is a good time to start revisiting the MCU movies—in order, obviously—before May 1. AMC and Regal are here to help you out with that with their massive Marvel movie marathon, all leading up to the premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Here’s the thing, though: you’ll be watching every one of these movies in one sitting, so you should probably bring one of those donut-shaped butt pillows.
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.
The new Avengers 2 trailer has arrived online early after Marvel tweeted out a call to their fans to tweet using the #AvengersAssemble hashtag. Officially premiering on Thursday with the series premiere of American Crime on ABC and in theaters with Cinderella, you don't have to wait any longer to see the biggest and best Avengers 2 trailer yet.
Making any movie is difficult, but making the sequel to one of the most popular movies of all time? That’s downright Herculean and Joss Whedon refuses to play the modesty game with it comes to Avengers 2. Describing the film as a “nightmare” and the “hardest juggling act he has ever, ever tried to pull off,” the beloved writer/director pulled no punches in talking about the difficult creative decisions that went into making the movie.
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. As the name implies, this suit is Iron Man’s contingency plan for a rogue Bruce Banner and it looks like it will get put to good use in the actual film. Naturally, where there is a cool superhero there is also a toy and Hot Toys has revealed a first look at their crazily detailed Hulkbuster figure.
As we get closer and closer to the new Avengers 2 trailer (which debuts on ABC this Friday), we've got yet another character poster from the film, this time focusing on de facto leader, Captain America. But, is this our last poster, or are some of the new members of the Avengers going to join the fun?
I just sat down with Chris Evans, in full Captain America costume, on the Avengers: Age of Ultron set. After just the first question, Evans says, “I can’t tell you that.” Okay... The next question is equally as innocuous; something about the current “group dynamic” of the Avengers, or whatever. Evans pauses and glances behind him at a Marvel publicist, who shakes his head. “I don’t think I can tell you that either.”
We prodded Renner for some details, and he wouldn't divulge much, but did promise some “wonderful secrets” about Hawkeye's past, including his relationship with Black Widow. (Remember, she was wearing the Hawkeye “arrow” necklace in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.) He also teases his new Stark Industries tech, being a “grump” and what exactly Hawkeye thinks when he sees Vision.
Last week, when Robert Downey, Jr. revealed the Iron Man character poster for Avengers 2, he also teased a “big announcement” in 8 days, which would be this upcoming Thursday. We're still a few days away, but we might have our strongest hint yet at what this big announcement is. Last night, ABC ran a promo last night revealing that the third and final Avengers 2 trailer would air on Thursday night during the series premiere of American Crime.
