Marvel and Disney’s first trailer for ‘Avengers 2’ leaked online Tuesday, Oct. 21, and it features never-before-seen footage of James Spader as Ultron, as well as a lot of darkness and destruction! Watch it here.
Impatient fans of The Avengers: Age of Ultron don’t have to wait until Oct. 28 to see the sequel’s first official trailer. The new video was supposed to debut during next week’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but a low-quality version leaked early on Oct. 22, so Marvel decided to just release the official clip!
