We’re just a couple of weeks away from the return of Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man and his super-powered pals for Avengers: Age Of Ultron, which means the promo parade is at full power. If you’re eagerly watching each footage snippet as it arrives, you’ll be happy to know that two new TV spots are now online. If you’re in lockdown, no-watchy mode, be wary…
The plot, as you’ll likely know by now, finds malevolent machine intelligence Ultron (voiced and performed by James Spader along with a team of CG experts) posing a terrible threat to Stark, Cap, Banner and the rest – not only is it powerful enough to reduce large swathes of the world to rubble, it also helps sprout the lingering seeds of discontent between the Avengers themselves, which could well tear them apart from within.
Back on heroic duty again are Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie). They’ll need all the resources at their disposal to tackle Ultron plus troublemaking powered twins Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).
Joss Whedon is back marshalling this one, and the film also features the likes of Don Cheadle, Andy Serkis, Paul Bettany, Hayley Atwell and Thomas Kretschmann. Avengers: Age Of Ultron will be out in the UK on April 23. The US will see the movie on May 1.
