‘Avengers 2’ Trailer GIFs: The Best Moments of ‘Age of Ultron’ Assembled!
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. Watch them loop over and over about a billion times, and before you know it, it’ll be May.
Just in case you’ve been living in a cave or the Savage Land for the last three years, here’s the official synopsis for the film:
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.
Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Chris Evans as Captain America. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
And now: GIFvengers Assemble!
Let's start with our favorite moment. During the opening sequence — a raid on a Hydra compound run by Baron von Strucker — the Avengers literally leap into action. What a great shot.
We've waiting patiently up until this point for an official look at Vision, and here we have it. It's not much, but it's all we've got, and maybe all we're going to get until the movie is released.
Here's Hulk doing what he does best: wrecking shop.
Because Ultron is technically an A.I., he downloads (or uploads) his consciousness into his robot form. He also at times is hiding out on the world wide web. Here it looks like he's finally arrived in his Ultron Prime body and is ready to unplug and bring some hurt on The Avengers.
Not a GIF, but was hard to make out while animated. A clever nod to Ultron's early days in the comics when he wore a cloak at nicknamed himself The Crimson Cowl.
Fancy new Avengers Tower!
We've heard rumors about this Banner/Black Widow romance, but here it is in full effect. The question is, whether this budding relationship is good for Banner/Hulk, or bad.
We're going to guess this is part of the vision Scarlet Witch shows Tony Stark. It looks somewhat similar to some extended footage shown at Comic-Con where Tony visualizes all the members of The Avengers as dead (the same scene in the original trailer where Cap's shield has been ripped in two).
Because Ultron can access the internet and any web-enabled device, The Avengers need to go into hiding. Hence, the cabin in the middle of the country where Hawkeye's family has spent time.
Iron Man comes down for a landing and meets up with Thor and Cap to face off against Ultron, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Not 100% on the location, but could be one of the facilities Ultron is using to mine vibranium for himself and the Ultron drones.
A shield to the chest would kill most normal enemies, but Ultron doesn't seem at all fazed.
The Hulk and Hulkbuster are having a slight disagreement after Scarlet Witch plays some of her mind games on Banner.
Speaking of Scarlet Witch and her mind games, here's a look at how she does it. Notice the eyes going red? That explains why, in previous trailers, Hulk's eyes were red while he's raging against Hulkbuster.
And here's Scarlet Witch's twin brother, Quicksilver, laying down a slow-motion haymaker to the chin of Captain America who goes down like a sack of potatoes.
It turns out that was not the best he can do. THIS is the best he can do.
Iron Man, Thor, Scarlet Witch, Captain America, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye do their best to keep the Ultron drones from what would appear to be a very important device in the center of the room.
We're gonna guess these are Hawkeye's arrows, but...maybe not? They sorta look like Wolverine claws. We thought briefly this might have something to do with Andy Serkis/Klaw, but Klaw doesn't have an actual claw.
