Marvel released the minute-long preview for Age of Ultron today, and the collection of sequences from the film is surprisingly stocked with new scenes featuring Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and the rest of the superhero crew. New additions to the team also get some attention in the preview, with Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s speedster Quicksilver featured in a few brief clips, as well as Elizabeth Olsen’s character, Scarlet Witch.
The sequel to the most successful superhero movie of all time pits the team of heroes against Ultron, an evil android bent on eliminating the human species from the planet.
Along with the aforementioned cast members, Age of Ultron also stars returning cast members Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, and Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig. That’s a whole lot of super heroes.
Newcomers to Marvel’s cinematic universe this time around include Taylor-Johnson and Olsen, as well as James Spader as Ultron and Paul Bettany as Vision.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is directed by Joss Whedon and hits theaters May 1, 2015.
