First TV spot for Avengers: Age of Ultron packs a lot of action into 30 seconds

There’s not much in the way of new footage to behold in the first television spot for Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the new preview of Marvel Studios’ upcoming sequel to The Avengers manages to cram quite a bit into its 30-second running time — which is good, because we’re probably going to see a lot of it over the next few months.

The brief teaser kicks off with a bit of a foreshadowing as Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) is heard saying, “This world needs something more powerful than any of us.” Cue scenes of battle-ravaged evil android Ultron powering up as Nick Fury (Samuel Jackson) warns that “Trouble always comes around.”

The rest of the preview alternates between scenes of the Avengers battling Ultron and each other, with Hulk and Iron Man shown brawling in the streets as the latter wears his massive “Hulkbuster” armor.

The sequel to the most successful superhero movie ever made (so far), Avengers: Age of Ultron pits Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the rest of the team against a sentient AI bent on eradicating humanity from Earth. The film is directed by Joss Whedon and hits theaters May 1.
