Planning to capitalize on the hype, Marvel scheduled a new teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron to premiere during next Tuesday’s episode of Agents of SH.I.E.L.D., but had their plans foiled when the trailer was leaked online Wednesday night.
Thinking quick on their feet, Marvel promptly released the official teaser trailer in response to the low quality leak, delighting Marvel, action, and blockbuster film fans alike while also managing to throw a jab at Hydra in this tweet:

In the hours since its release, the dread-filled trailer has garnered over 7 million views on YouTube, inciting even more excitement and hype over the 2015 release. Many, including PCM, are praising the trailer’s effective use of “I’ve Got No Strings” from Marvel’s parent company, Disney’s classic, Pinocchio.
The song and its lyrics “I had stings / But now I’m free / There are no strings on me” has a chilling, hair-raising effect when growled by the Avenger archnemisis and evil-robot-supervillian Ultron over the bass and boom of explosions and Hulk smashes.

Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time.
When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.
As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk.
Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction.
Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963.
