AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Preview Footage Teases Hulk vs. Iron Man Fight and Avengers Tower

     July 15, 2014


Though we’ve learned to expect the unexpected when it comes to Marvel’s Hall H panels at San Diego Comic-Con, there will be 5,000 very, very angry fans if the studio doesn’t show anything from Avengers: Age of Ultron next weekend.  Last year Marvel showed a reel of incredibly impressive footage from Guardians of the Galaxy even though they had only been shooting for a week, so given that Avengers 2 is towards the tail end of its production schedule, it’s a safe bet that we’ll see something from Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated sequel.

But it won’t be the first time that footage from the pic has been screened.  Recently over in the UK, Marvel showed off a short reel from Age of Ultron.  A writeup of what was shown has now landed online, giving fans a tiny glimpse at what to expect from the follow-up.  More after the jump.

avengers-age-of-ultron-iron-man-hulk-concept-artThe folks over at Radio Times got a glimpse at some early footage from the Avengers sequel, saying they were able to see Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) Hulkbuster armor being put to good use in a skirmish with Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk.  They were also privy to some footage of new additions Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver:

Also sighted were new brother sister duo Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Scarlet has mysterious reality warping powers (in the footage this mostly involved making some blocks float around) while Quicksilver can run really, really fast (although without the special effects, it was more of a light jog).

avengers-age-of-ultron-scarlet-witch-concept-artFootage from later in the film saw Scarlet Witch fighting alongside Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) even though she and her brother were initially antagonists to the Avengers, so one imagines a turn of some sort takes place.  Additionally, Avengers Tower was revealed:

Designed by Tony Stark out of the ruins of his New York penthouse, this has all mod cons: floor to ceiling windows, twin laboratories for Stark and Bruce Banner, and parking for supersonic jets. It’s reminiscent of the SHIELD helicarrier in terms of construction, with lots of shiny metal pillars

The report also notes that while The Avengers took place mostly in New York, the follow-up sees the titular heroes trotting the globe in order to fight the robot Ultron (James Spader), jetting to Italy, South Korea, and South Africa.

Marvel boss Kevin Feige told those in attendance at the footage preview that it may not ever be screened again, meaning this might not be exactly what Marvel plans to show fans at Comic-Con.  Regardless, be sure to keep an eye on Collider next Saturday night for our full recap of the Hall H panel.
