A trailer leak isn’t really a good thing, but it seems to have worked out well for Avengers: Age of Ultron and for those eager to see as much footage as possible, too! Marvel just revealed that within the first 24 hours, that new teaser trailer scored 34.3 million global views, which decimates the previous record of 20 million views set by Iron Man 3.
Because the teaser trailer arrived prior to that planned Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiere, Marvel has decided to offer up even more brand new Age of Ultron material during the October 28th episode. And the studio isn’t stopping there. Marvel will air even more exclusive Age of Ultron footage during Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop! on November 4th as well. Hit the jump for all the details. Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in theaters on May 1, 2015.

Here’s the official synopsis of Avengers: Age of Ultron:
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. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015.
