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.
0:12 – SCARLET WITCH AND QUICKSILVER SCARLET WITCH AND QUICKSILVER OMG OMG OMG.
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.
0:30 – EXPLOSIONS.
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.
0:37 – MORE EXPLOSIONS.
0:39 – MARVEL. MARVEL MARVEL MARVEL. I LOVE YOU.
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.
0:55 – MY PRECIOUS.
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.
1:01 – NATASHA MY LOVE.
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.
