It’s nothing new for automobile companies to suggest their cars are capable of feats above and beyond those of their competitors, but a new ad campaign for the 2015 Audi TTS hints at the new model of its popular sports car being positively, well … super-heroic.
Titled “Audi and The Avengers: Striking,” the ad pairs footage of the TTS in action with scenes from the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, and rather than recycle clips from the existing trailers, the ad actually offers up quite a bit of new footage. Along with a clip from the battle between Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) — with the latter wearing his “Hulkbuster” armor — the ad also includes some new scenes featuring Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson).
There’s also some new footage of franchise newcomers Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) in action.
The ad ends with a television spot for another Marvel movie on the horizon, Ant-Man, remixing some of the previous sequences from the trailer and other previews of the film.
The sequel to The Avengers, the most successful superhero movie ever made, Avengers: Age of Ultron pits Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and the rest of the team against the evil android Ultron (voiced by James Spader), who’s intent on eradicating humanity from the planet. The film is the penultimate chapter in “Phase Two” of Marvel Studios’ cinematic universe, with Ant-Man concluding the second wave of films in July.
Along with the aforementioned cast, Age of Ultron also brings back Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Don Cheadle as James “War Machine” Rhodes, Cobie Smulders as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill, and Stellan Skarsgård as scientist Erik Selvig. The film will also feature the debut of Paul Bettany as the Avengers’ android teammate, Vision.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is written and directed by Joss Whedon and hits theaters May 1, 2015. The Audi TTS is on sale already.
