Avengers: Age of Ultron- What Does the New TV Spot Reveal?
With Avengers: Age of Ultron just a couple months away, Marvel has begun going into its full-out marketing campaign. We've already gotten three trailers, a TV spot and a bunch of posters and stills. There can't be anything new they can show us without ruining the whole film, right? Wrong. This latest, one minute TV spot is comprised of mostly new footage and it is awesome! Not only that, but it gives us hints to some things that may play out in the film that we didn't know about before. Let's break it down and talk about it.
First off, it gives us the light-hearted humor that Marvel is known for but has been absent from the trailers so far. We get Robert Downey Jr. narrating the TV spot with his classic Tony Stark superego humor. We also get a great line from Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury in "Let's show them what we got!" During each of the moments the spot highlights each hero, they all have a one-liner unique to their character. While they may not be laugh-out-loud funny, they made me smile, because it gave me faith that some of the magic from the first The Avengers will be there. I am all for getting darker and grimmer, but it wouldn't be the Avengers without some humor, and we finally got to see some of it.
Second, as they list off all the characters in the Avengers, they include Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). All the previous trailers have been pointing to the fact that they will be against the Avengers, working for Ultron. I have speculated whether they will even join the Avengers at all in this film, but this spot seems to point to the fact that they will. We also hear Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) say to someone "Once you step outside these doors, you'll be an Avenger". The next shot was of Scarlet Witch stepping outside a door. We may find out Hawkeye was talking to someone else, but it makes most sense it would be the twins.
Third, we got to hear Quicksilver's accent. I didn't know they would go for an accent with his character, but I guess there is one. Granted, we only heard a single line from him, but it felt really kind of cheesy. Not Paul Giamatti/The Amazing Spider-Man 2 cheesy, but it stood out to me. Maybe it sounds better in the film than a single excerpt taken out of the movie, but I didn't care for it.
