It’s been two long years since Joss Whedon’s The Avengers completely upped everyone’s game in the superhero genre, and by the time Avengers: Age of Ultron rolls around next year, it will have been three.

The long wait is slowly but surely working its way towards being over, and whilst the anticipation is understandably killing every last one of us, Marvel has finally launched an awesome first teaser trailer and a cool new poster to help make the wait just a little bit more manageable.

Avengers Poster

Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.

Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner return as the eponymous group of heroes, with James Spader cast as the leading villain, Ultron, and a very promising ensemble in the form of Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, and Don Cheadle.

Whedon is directing from his own script, with Kevin Feige serving as sole producer.

Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on April 24th, 2015 in the UK, a week ahead of the US, slated for release on May 1st.
