Avengers: Age of Ultron- Trailer 2 Analysis/Breakdown
Just last week a second trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron was released (you can see that here), giving us some new shots at what the film may hold in store for us. So here, we're going to breakdown the trailer and analyze is shot-for-shot to see if we can figure out any pieces of the puzzle. So, let's get started.
A group of frantic people being lead to safety by Hawkeye. It's hard to pinpoint where this is, be we know that things are getting blown up. Doesn't exactly look like the same place as the Hulkbuster fight, so maybe just a fight against Ultron's army.
This looks to be in the same scene as before. It's hard to tell, but it looks as if this woman is Scarlet Witch. But she looks to be running away in fear. Maybe this sequence is a flashback? Or maybe it's just some random woman.
A giant truck flipped over. Looks to be part of the same sequence. If this is a flashback, then what could have flipped an entire truck over like that? Or maybe it's just part of a fight with Ultron's army.
A shot of Captain America's helmet. Definitely a better design than in the first Avengers film.
A shot of Captain America, with the new Avengers logo clearly present on the side of his shoulder.
We've seen shots of this woods sequence before, with tanks blowing things up. This could possibly be part of the intro scene, that we know the Avengers attack Baron Wolfgang von Strucker (who made an appearance at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and free Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
A shot of Hawkeye in the same sequence.
It's hard to tell where exactly Tony Stark is here, but it looks to be some sort of warehouse. Maybe where he was storing the Ultron prototype before it went rogue.
Tony's looking at something. My guess is that it's either Ultron or one of the drones that's crept up on him.
We see the Ultron prototype lying there, and then the lights flash on. I think this is Ultron turning on for the first time, before he crashes the party.
The Ultron prototype staggering around. This is definitely when he makes his appearance at the Avengers' party.
This is the clip from the first trailer, with Ultron's "puppets tangled in strings" speech.
Bruce Banner says to Tony "Ultron?", which proves the theory that Banner helped Tony create Ultron.
Tony stares down Ultron, giving this perfect look: "What have I done?"
Here comes Ultron's army! But I guess we're going to have to wait to see the battle between the army and the Avengers.
A building explosion. Kind of hard to pinpoint where this is, or what the context is.
A shot of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
A shot of Banner turning into the Hulk. From the way he's staggering around, it doesn't look as if he's in control. Does this happen right before the Hulkbuster scene?
This is the same scene that we saw of Nick Fury in the last trailer. Could this be the only scene that Fury is in in the film?
This shot has been speculated to death by fans, but the prevalent theory is that this woman is part of the Dora Milaje, Black Panther's body guards. We already know Ultron will be after vibranium, which is only in Wakanda, Black Panther's kingdom. And the movie did shoot in South Africa, so it's a safe assumption that part of this movie will be in Wakanda. As to whether we'll see Black Panther, I don't think we necessarily will, but I would bet money that this woman is part of the Dora Milaje. Also, this looks to be the same pool of water that we see Thor emerge from in the previous trailer (see that picture here).
This scene could be anywhere in the film, but I think this takes place after Ultron attacks the Avengers during the party. I suspect that they think they have beaten him (that damaged robot being the Ultron prototype) but his consciousness has moved to another form. It's only a theory, though.
This looks to be the same scene. Thor's line of "You've meddled with something you don't understand" seems to prove that this scene is them digesting what Tony and Bruce have actually created in Ultron.
We saw this shot of Scarlet Witch shooting something in the previous trailer, but it's expanded upon in this one.
We see that she is actually shooting Iron Man. Now, we know that at first Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch don't get along with the Avengers, but at some point they join forces with them. But for how long their enemies is unknown.
Again, this is an expansion of a scene in the previous trailer. We saw a gurney rolling down a hallway and medical supplies, but we didn't know anything else about the sequence. Now we know that the person being operated on is Black Widow. The fact that throughout the film she has longer hair and in this she has bangs seems to point to the possibility that this is a flashback sequence.
So if this is a flashback, then is this in Russia. We know Black Widow started out in the KBG, but if this is from back then, what is the operation? And if this is in the present, why is she being operated on. Assuming it is an operation and not an interrogation. And who is that woman?
The same shot from the last trailer of the medical supplies.
A drone flying around in what seems like is a battle sequence. The surroundings look as if this could be the same place that Hawkeye is evacuating people from in the beginning of the trailer, but there's no way to be certain.
This destruction just shows how powerful Ultron's army is, if they can tear through trucks.
We saw this shot in the last trailer, of the drones rising out of the water. But where is this? If Ultron is rising up and this is his army following him, where are they coming from. Does Tony have some holding facility where he stores the drones? Is that the warehouse we saw him in earlier? Or is this later in the movie?
This looks to be apart of the raid on Strucker's facility, as the snow points to it being the same scene as Hawkeye in the woods.
Here's where we get into the theoretical. This shot is edited to look as if it is part of the Hulk losing control, but I don't think it is. From previous shots of the Hulkbuster fight, the environment is different. It looks more tribal (I've always suspected Wakanda). So if the Hulkbuster fight is in Wakanda, then the people would be black and they language would be African or a language native to the land. But this shot has white cops and English writing. Unless if the Hulk loses control multiple times, I don't think this is part of the Hulkbuster fight. I think this is another scene entirely. As to what scene, I have no idea.
All I'm going to say is I wonder what those guns are.
Black Widow is looking at something. The architecture in the background seems to show that it is the same scene as the shot before, but I don't think it's the same scene as the next shot.
Andy Serkis is back in this trailer. I was shocked to see him again, because I thought he was in the first one just to show he's in the film. Maybe he has a larger part than people previously thought. And this shot gives more credence to the idea that he's Ulysses Klaw, the enemy of Black Panther. His neckless looks like a claw and his overall look is right out of the comics!
The Quinjet flying around a city. A lot of people are speculating this to be Wakanda, as it looks similar to the comic book look. But honestly, there's no real way to tell.
Okay, I think this little shot gives us a true testament as to how powerful the drones are. Captain America is super strong. He's not Hulk-strong, but he's pretty damn strong. And in this shot we see the drone overpower him. These drones must be really, really powerful.
A crowd of people dispersing. Who knows what they're running from?
Here starts the beginning of my biggest theory of the movie. I think Black Widow is going to die. There have been rumors that she and Banner are in a relationship during this movie. Everything we have seen points to that. Them hanging out at the party. And this next shot.
They hold hands. I think this is in her final moments before she dies.
This is Ultron's final form (or so we think), but it's hard to tell where he is right now. I have a crazy theory that the final battle will take place in Asgard, as Ultron tries to access the metal that Thor's hammer is made of for one final upgrade. We know Loki and Heimdall are in the film, and if Ultron tries to lead his path of destruction to Asgard, that's how they could be integrated. And that's where I think the shots of Captain America and Thor beaten on a place that doesn't quite look like earth is. I have barely anything to back this theory up though.
I think that the woman getting into the pool and Thor in the pool are all connected, with this shot included. The candles seem to point to some sort of ceremony and look near Thor's left arm. Who is that woman? She looks to be in some sort of tribal dress, so I think for whatever reason Wakandan woman put Thor in the pool. Maybe they malfunction his armor (which is why it seems to be uncontrollable electrocuting him).
A close-up of a woman. This appears to be Scarlet Witch but we can't be sure.
We saw this shot in the previous trailer, but I think this is after Thor says his line about "meddling with something you don't understand". Either Tony throws back some insult that causes Thor to become angry, or Thor is already angry at what Ultron has done.
In the last trailer, we saw Black Widow drop out of the Quinjet on a motorcycle, so I think it's safe to assume this is her.
Close up on the Hulkbuster.
It's blurry, but in this shot, the Hulk grabs a lamppost and smashes the Hulkbuster.
This shot was in the first trailer. This looks to be the Avengers at Strucker's base.
Black Widow says "Oh boy" and it's edited to look as if she's saying it about the Hulk losing control, but I think the reason why he loses control is because she dies. I think she is talking about something else. Maybe her impending death.
You don't like him when he's angry.
Hulkbuster flying in to fight the Hulk.
Tony looks pissed off in this shot. Whatever happened to cause the Hulkbuster fight, it was definately severe.
The Hulkbuster flies with the Hulk in hand. This shot really gives us a look at the size comparison between the Hulkbuster armor and the Hulk himself.
The Hulkbuster drags the Hulk through the ground.
The Hulkbuster emerged from the rubble after being kicked into the air by the Hulk.
This shot specifically seals the deal from me on my theory that Black Widow dies. Look at the Hulk's eyes. They're bloodshot. As if he was crying. I think Black Widow, his love, died and he lost control.
I don't want to be on the receiving end of that repulser blast.
What do you think? Do you agree with any of my theories? Did you spot something I didn't? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
