Disney and Marvel quickly reacted to a leak last Wednesday of the first Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer, releasing it online almost a week early. It had originally been due to debut during last night’s episode of ABC’s Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Although that plan was scuttled by the previous week’s events, last night’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. did include a treat for fanboys and girls. A “Special Look” at footage from the sequel, which was shown at Comic-Con in July (watch it above), begins with the Avengers in playful mode as Tony Stark, War Machine, Cap and others knock back some beers and attempt to lift Thor’s mighty hammer. Until James Spader’s Ultron shows up to dampen the fun, that is. Avengers: Age Of Ultron starts rolling out internationally in late April before landing in U.S. theaters on May 1.
