“Yo dawg! I heard you like trailers, so I made a trailer for your trailer.” Marvel is hoping for an epic opening for its upcoming sequel to the 2012 smash hit, The Avengers. The Avengers: Age Of Ultron is set for release on May 1, but Marvel is taken an Xzibit-esque turn by releasing a teaser trailer for the upcoming trailer that will debut on January 12 during the NCAA college football championship game on ESPN.
Yes, you heard that right. We have now come to the point where trailers actually need their own teaser trailer. And to add insult to injury, the teaser trailer for the trailer simply shows us some recycled clips from the original trailer. To see for yourself, watch the 15-second clip below:
If you recall, the first trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked onto the Internet early in October nearly a week before Marvel had originally planned to debut release it. Marvel at first appeared to take the leak in stride, posting its own high-quality version of the trailer to YouTube to appease fans.
However, Marvel showed its true disgust for the leak by getting a California federal court to issue a subpoena to Google in order to snuff out the person responsible for uploading the trailer.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron brings back the old crew from the first film including Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America /Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Dr. Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Clint Marton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Newcomers to the film include Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), and Ultron (voiced by James Spader).
