More Avengers Age Of Ultron Footage Comes To Agents Of SHIELD Next Week; Trailer HULK-Smashes Record
Marvel is rewarding our bad behavior! The still-stunning-after-a-dozen-views Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer was set to debut during next week's episode of Agents of SHIELD, but those plans went right out the door almost immediately when a low-res version of the trailer leaked. Marvel handled the situation better than almost anyone though, quickly releasing the HD version on their site.
And it worked. The trailer was viewed 34 million times in the first 24 hours. I know I didn't see it a million times, but it is still safe to say that we all contributed to that monumental haul, which easily drowns the same record once held by Iron Man 3 at 20 million in the first day.
But what of the original plan? The House of M is still going through with new Ultron footage, just not with the trailer. From the official Marvel site, "because we believe that the best way to say thanks is to give you more, we're delivering new Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" action to your TV sets, two weeks in a row!"
There will be new content debuting during Agents of SHIELD. Which is good, it means you should all be watching, because the show has really picked up this season and you should be lending it your support anyways. The next week on November 4 at 9 p.m. "tune into "Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop!" for another taste of Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron"- and much more."
Chances are good that the upcoming footage will be of climactic battle. Personally, I would love to see more of the Iron Man/Hulk fight, as that is a duel I've been dying to see for years now. The 75th anniversary retrospective will certainly be a must-see for any Marvel fan. They do some excellent behind the scenes and celebratory work.
But hey, why don't you watch the Age of Ultron trailer again? I know I am.
