A new trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has arrived, bringing some additional footage and a full rundown of the superhero (and villain) roster.
Marvel dropped the new trailer online today, and it opens with some fresh footage of Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) chatting with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans). Fans of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. already knew Maria Hill was settling in well working for Stark in the wake of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and now we have an inkling of how the private version of the Avengers is working out.
It sounds like Stark is, not surprisingly, funding the whole operation out of his new and improved Avengers Tower. But, at least according to Stark, Capt. Steve Rogers is the one calling the shots. But in classic Stark fashion, he says he's just there to pay for everything, develop all the tech and make sure it all looks cool. Fair enough. Also of note: Some epic Cap fight scenes. Seriously awesome stuff.
The trailer also features a bit of new footage from Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), which is encouraging. His character kind of got the shaft in The Avengers, and he's been off the grid ever since. Hawkeye fans (and Renner) have been waiting a long time to see this character get some development. Here's hoping this is the beginning of a whole new world for Hawkeye.
Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1.
