The full trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has leaked on the internet days before its official release. Disney’s only date for the trailer thus far has been that it will have a broadcast debut during next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on Tuesday night.
The trailer leaked via what looks to be a UK or other international distributor, based on the “April 2015” release date in the trailer. The US release is scheduled for May 1, 2015.
The footage, seen widely on Movieweb and also on image and video sharing sites, is low quality, but is a full trailer, at over 2 minutes long. It’s comprised of much of the same footage that was shown at Comic-Con International: San Diego in July, and again at select events at New York Comic Con just a week and a half ago. There’s plenty of Ultron (more than in that comic convention footage), including most of his narration (though his “Vision” line/tease was cut), plus a Hulkbuster appearance, and a split second of Quicksilver super speed.
Disney has been doing the rounds and asking for sites to pull the footage, so we will not be posting it directly here. The question now is what they do next. Will they post the official version earlier than they had planned, or simply wait things out for the just-announced (and advertised on broadcast television) reveal on Tuesday October 28?
The good news for Disney is that despite the lower quality of the trailer, it’s getting a rave review from across most of the geek internet at the moment. Still, that’s likely of little consolation to Marvel Studios, who has kept a very short leash on all things Ultron, trying to save the surprise for official debuts. As for an official, public response, all Marvel had to say was this, on twitter:
