First Reactions To The “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” Film Trailer

I’m such a happy little fangirl at the moment, peoples! Why? Because Avengers: Age of Ultron will be out in just a few days and I AM SO READY FOR THAT AWESOMENESS. It’s actually released on May first, but I’m going to see it on Thursday (April thirtieth) because… because, for whatever reason, it has become a Thing for movie theaters to release movies like a day before they’re officially out – thus entirely defeating the purpose of having that specific release date.

I do not understand that at all.

But I digress. If it means I get to see Age of Ultron a day earlier than I otherwise would, then I’m happy and I’ll try not to question those movie theater quirks. Anyway, I’m going to watch this one with a friend and FLAIL SO MUCH and smile gleefully every time Steve Rogers is onscreen because he is my favoritest superhero.

But that’s still a few days away, so in the meantime I thought I’d do another film trailer reaction post! This one’s about the third trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron.


P.S. You can find my earlier film trailer reaction posts here.

Warning: Spoilers ahead! Read/watch at your own risk!

0:07 – Ooh, so pretty!

0:10 – Someday when I am a villain I will have an Intimidating Yet Pretty Palace of Doom just like the one here.


0:15 – I have no idea who voices Ultron, but he sounds… way too nice? Like, I know he’s saying Scary Things but he sounds way too suave and I just can’t take him seriously and this is amusing.

0:19 – Also I need a plane like that.

0:21 – Who is she? I have no idea, but she is so pretty and oh god I am very gay.


0:34 – “There’s only one path to peace.” And Ultron believes it involves chasing innocent people through parks while firing bullets at them? Ultron. Ultron, control yourself. Honestly.



0:46 – Tony, you screwed up. Like, really badly. Really, really, really badly.

0:50 – I don’t even know what is going on here.


0:56 – MY HERO.

0:57 – [Fangirls intensely about Captain America]

0:58 – Oh my gosh, it’s the Really Tight Shirt That Steve Probably Wears Because He Wants Sam To Check Out His Amazing Six-Pack.


1:04 – I could listen to her voice literally all day? [Completely fails at the Heterosexuality Thingy]

1:08 – This is, without question, the best scene in this trailer and totally the reason I’m writing about this trailer and not one of the others.

1:11 – Is it even legal to fly airplanes in traffic? Don’t the Avengers get ticketed for doing so?

1:12 – My sexual orientation is “Black Widow riding a motorcycle and looking super badass.”

1:16 – WHAT IS EVEN THE POINT OF THIS SCENE? Thor is flailing around in water, without a shirt on? Like, did the filmmakers sit around thinking, “We should add a scene where Thor flails around in water without a shirt on so that people can admire his muscles”?

1:17 – I love how everyone else in this scene is wearing their superhero outfits and then the Incredible Hulk is just wearing a sweatshirt. Dude, I get it. Gotta stay comfy, right?

1:26 – Oh my gosh, do you ever just get really overwhelmed by how lovely Captain America is? Because I do.

1:32 – Ditto Black Widow. (Hey, that rhymed!)

1:38 – Well, that wasn’t destructive at all.

1:42 – I’m really happy that Scarlet Witch has joined the Avengers because it means I will doubtless have a New Fictional Crush.

1:51 – Shut up, Thor. SHUT. UP.

1:57 – I too turn into a giant green rage monster. Occasionally.


So in case you couldn’t already tell, I am JUST A TEENSY BIT EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE and that trailer just amplified my excitement by about twelve billion percent. I love how the Marvel movies are gradually becoming darker and more complex, but they haven’t lost that feeling of fun.

And now it is Time For Me To Discuss Things That Were Not Mentioned In This Trailer. Namely, the fact that Anthony Mackie and Hayley Atwell, while not top-billed, are listed in the credits section of the posters and trailers!

[Runs around shrieking until she runs out of breath, at which point she lies on the ground, trying and failing to conceal the humongous grin on her face]

If you’re not very good at the whole “matching actors’ names to characters’ faces” thing, Mackie is Sam Wilson AKA the Falcon and Atwell is Peggy Carter AKA Agent Carter AKA Queen of My Heart.

I love both of those characters to death and don’t even care if they’ll have teeny-tiny, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scenes because they are Just That Awesome. It’s pretty obvious why the Falcon is in this movie – he’s Steve’s new friend/helpful superhero dude, but Peggy? Is Atwell reprising her role from The Winter Soldier as old!Peggy or is she part of a flashback or…? Who knows?

Summary: I just really love the Falcon and Peggy – and Captain America, who really loves them both –  and if you talk to me about them at literally any time ever, I will love you eternally. I mean, I love talking about anything and everything Marvel, but THESE THREE. They are the Literal Best and oh god oh god I am so excited for this movie that I may spontaneously combust sometime within the next few days. So if you don’t see any more blog posts, it’s because I suffered an unfortunate fandom-induced accident.


What’s your opinion of this trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron? Are you as FREAKISHLY EXCITED for it as I am?! And tell me, oh wonderful blog readers, who is your favorite superhero?

P.S. They can be from Marvel or DC: I won’t judge you, ha ha.

  1. It’s been out in cinemas here for like a week now, WHAT’S GOING ON? Normally we get movies three years after everyone else. But lol, “I am so gay.” You remind me so much of one of my friends (we share a mutual obsession with Anna Kendrick). I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE AGE OF ULTRON OMG.

    • nevillegirl says:

      Ohhhhh, that’s WEIRD. I will never ever understand movie release dates. :/

      I am just going to sit in the movie theater flailing whenever cute women appear onscreen. *nods* And basically all the women in this movie are cute, so there will be a lot of flailing.

  2. Bec Graham says:

    This is weird! I saw the film on Saturday night! Spoiler: it was amazing!

  3. Bec Graham says:

    Also, the voice of Ultron is James Spader. My friend and I spent the WHOLE MOVIE trying to place that voice. Wasn’t until the credits happened that we got it.

  4. themagicviolinist says:

    BLACK WIDOW, FOREVER BLACK WIDOW. She doesn’t even have any powers or supersuits or anything and she’s freaking awesome!! I am so excited for this movie. Plus, it’ll be the first Marvel movie I go to see on the big screen. 🙂

    • nevillegirl says:

      (But, pssst… she totally does have superpowers, most of her body is artificial/biotechnologically altered to make her a faster, stronger fighter. ❤ ❤ ❤

      This'll be the second Marvel movie I've seen on the big screen, but I'm guessing it'll feel very different from The Winter Soldier… because I wasn't really into comics last year and TWS is the reason I started reading them! So AOU is the first Marvel movie I've been SUPER EXCITED for – I saw TWS just because I like going to the movies, tbqh. I had no idea I'd end up obsessed with Captain America. 😛

      (Are you gonna see the other MCU movies before AUO, or…? 'Cause there's a pretty big twist at the end of TWS and IDK if AUO will make much sense without knowing about that.)

      • themagicviolinist says:

        Ooh, did not know that. 🙂 Thanks!

        I’m going to try to fit in as many as I can, so I’ll probably start with Winter Soldier and then rewatch The Avengers. 🙂 But if possible, I also want to get Iron Man 3 in there. We’ll see what I get to.

    • nevillegirl says:

      Yeah, Hawkeye is the only one without superhuman powers. 🙂

      Yay yay yay!

    I went to see this yesterday (still finding it very bizarre that the UK somehow got it before it was released in the US – that rarely happens!), and for someone who used to say they really dislike Marvel… I quite liked it. I mean, it wasn’t my favourite Marvel film but it WAS pretty good – although I was reading quotes from it on IMDB, and either I fell asleep at one point, or I was reading a mythical scene…

    And may I just say, I stand with you on everything you said about Black Widow and Scarlet Witch, because they’re just beautiful and fantastic and I really love them both. When my friend and I left the cinema, we were looking at the poster for the film, and she was saying something along the lines of “but Captain America is the cutest one. I mean, I love them all, but he’s just so cute and gorgeous”, whereas I’m standing there saying exactly the same about Black Widow and Scarlet Witch, and I want to see it again just for them.


    • nevillegirl says:

      I know, isn’t it?! Usually you get movies quite a bit later… hmm…
      Ooh, that’s great! 🙂

      Oh god, same. I mean, I adore Captain America as a character, but Scarlet Witch and Black Widow???? So??? Pretty??? And they kick butt??? Oh my goodness.

      I need an entire Black Widow TV show, tbqh. Have you seen Agent Carter? Perhaps I’m reading too much into it, but one of its plots was the origin of the Black Widow program so it makes me wonder if Marvel Studios is indeed building up to a movie/show entirely about her.

      • thelonglifeofalifelongfangirl says:

        We do indeed, so I was surprised when my friend said it wasn’t out until the 1st – I may have felt just slightly smug too 😛

        I know, they’re just fantastic and fabulous and pretty, and basically every time either of them was on-screen, my mind is jumping in with “I love you quite a lot…” which got a little distracting 😛

        Anything to do with Black Widow is a go in my book, really! I’ve not seen Agent Carter yet! My friend has recommended it to me (she’s also got a lot of love for Hayley Atwell), and I’m keen to start watching it – I’ve just finished the first series of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and now I want to get onto Agent Carter! My friend was saying she’s heard talk of a Black Widow film in the next couple of years, and I really hope she’s right, because honestly – seeing Age of Ultron has made me SO much more curious for her backstory…

    • nevillegirl says:

      Pffft, I don’t blame you for that. 😛

      Yes yes yes that is basically my reaction to them as well. 🙂

      OH GOSH
      😀 😀 😀 😀
      ❤ ❤
      She is the BEST and I have suuuuuuch a huge crush on her*, and on Peggy Carter as well, and ldfgkshfghdgjhsgf yes yes you should totally watch it it's SO GIRLY and SO KICKASS. Basically she's just endlessly punching men in the face while looking absolutely perfect and stunning in high heels and skirts and lipstick? It's the greatest. And Atwell + plus her lady costar seem to ship their characters together, so. I COULD FANGIRL ABOUT THIS SHOW FOR AAAAAGES.

      *Like literally the ONLY woman I know of who’s prettier is Natalie Dormer, Atwell is just THAT gorgeous. Ugh. I can’t even.

      • thelonglifeofalifelongfangirl says:

        It’s quite the justifiable reaction, of course!

        I had never heard of Hayley Atwell before reading a few of yours posts, or hearing about her from my friend – but I’m glad II know who she is NOW 😛 I’m really looking forward to watching it; I’m not a fan of girly-ness in general, but kickass is always good xD And I’m just excited for it – especially if it’s so fangirl-worthy 😀

        Aaaaahhhh I love Natalie Dormer. She’s just so damn gorgeous and I remember when she was first on-screen in Mockingjay, I was reacting to her a lot like I did to Black Widow and Scarlet Witch – she’s just grand 😀

    • nevillegirl says:

      Well, like… *flails around, attempting to explain* All the dudes at Peggy’s work say, “You can’t do things because you’re a WOMAN!” but then she proves that not only can she do the things… she can do them better than her coworkers, and basically uses femininity against them? She has poison lipstick, for a start. So not only does she look hella cute and feminine, she’s being kickass at the same time and everyone underestimates her because she’s so girly… not knowing that she’ll use that against them. 😛

      *sigh* Natalie Dormer = should be my wife. 😛 I started watching Game of Thrones and Elementary because she’s in them! (And she was in the first Captain America movie, too!)

  6. I literally am reading this without having any clue of anything Avengers or even this trailer and it is half funny and half confusing (but tis my own fault). I lost it at “My sexual orientation is ‘Black Widow riding a motorcycle and looking super badass’.” LOST IT.
