There's a new trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. That means we're all watching it over and over again. As we wait for the May 1 release date, let's see what the latest trailer reveals. It's likely there's still a lot more surprises to be seen in the actual movie.

If you missed when we first posted the trailer, you can watch it (or watch it again) here:

Now let's dive into this and really think about everything we just saw.

The Twins

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

What's the deal with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch? Why oh why are they working with Ultron?

We first saw them at the very end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We know they were locked up by Baron Strucker and HYDRA but we don't know how long. It appears that Ultron discovered their location and took everyone out. Again, because we don't know how long they've been locked up, it makes sense they would feel in debt to this mechanical savior. With his words of being designed to save the world, maybe he does know what's best. But then, he does state he plans to take away the hope of those "looking to the skies."

Ultron's Plan for Peace

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

This is where one might start to question what Ultron has planned. He says the path to peace is extinction? That doesn't sound like a great plan to follow, especially if you're human. He must have some sort of control over the Twins.

Stark Avengers Tower

No Caption Provided

This used to be Stark Tower. We can see it's been given a new coat of paint. Is this where the Avengers meet and hang out? We know that can't be a great idea. Who wants to bet that Ultron will attack the place? Is that where they first meet him when they're having their celebratory gathering?

Ultron's Creation

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

We know his origin is different from the comics. In the comics it was Hank Pym who was responsible. Here we see Tony Stark come clean, at least with Bruce Banner, that he created artificial intelligence. This will obviously cause some tension later. He tells him it was the "Ultron Program." The question is, what was the original intension of the program? Maybe it's just me, but the name "Ultron" doesn't sound too happy. We also find out Tony is a Bruce Lee fan.

Prelude to Civil War?

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

Captain America says he's "sick of watching people pay for our mistakes." Obviously there's going to be some deaths happening. We can imagine how hard it must be for a hero not being able to save everyone. The fact that this is because one of their own created something that got out of control, yeah, Steve and Tony are going to have some words.

Hulk and Black Widow

No Caption Provided

Love is in the air? We know the two have a connection, as seen in the other trailers. Black Widow is seen trying to calm Hulk down. She has faced him alone before in the confines of a helicarrier. Here, we see Natasha and Bruce appear to be getting a little close.

Epic Fighting

No Caption Provided

There's going to be some great scenes here. In the first movie, the battle was spread fairly evenly over New York City. At least in this one shot, we get to see the team all together. Maybe it's just meant to be a money shot. Who cares. It's making us really giddy.

Nick Fury

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

It almost looks like they all get sent to the Principal's office. Fury is back to tell them what to do. They all may have some experience now but Fury is still the man. He's been around a lot longer. It's a good thing he comes out of hiding to help out in whatever way he can. Hopefully he has some more hidden caches around.

Confronting Ultron and the Twins

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

Looks like the Avengers manage to track down where Ultron and the Twins are hanging out. The question is, does this take place before or after their first encounter with the Twins?

Getting Along

No Caption Provided

Of course, because they're heroes, they will be able to put aside their differences to fight together, even when knowing they may not make it out in one piece.

Ultron vs Cap's Shield

No Caption Provided

We know Ultron isn't coated or made out of Adamantium. Cap manages to throw the shield and get it lodged in Ultron's chest. It's good to see that Cap doesn't always magically regain his shield. When it falls to the ground, Black Widow picks it up for him.

Tearing the Avengers Apart

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

This must be where Scarlet Witch comes in. We don't know exactly what the extent of her abilities are. There is obviously some mind control or manipulation going on. We see Hulk and Hulkbuster Iron Man fighting. Wanda also seems to be messing with Natasha's mind. Then there's Thor going after Stark for some reason.

The Power of the Twins

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

These two shouldn't be taken lightly. We see Quicksilver deliver a pretty impressive uppercut to Cap. He likely didn't even see it coming. That could be a problem. Scarlet Witch is also unleashing all sorts of havoc on everything.

Be Careful What You Wish For

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

Leave it to Thor to let his words get the better of him. When asking if "that's the best you can do?" Ultron unleashes another wave of attacks. He even gives a pretty creepy laugh. We have to wonder if the Twins will be 'evil' the entire time. There appears to be different fights shown. During this one, we don't see the Twins around assisting Ultron. Perhaps they realize his "extinction" plan isn't the best one to follow. This also shows the typical Marvel humor will be present.

And Here's One Answer

No Caption Provided

We do see the team surrounded by Ultrons. You can see Scarlet Witch is fighting with them. Welcome to the Avengers Wanda. Hope you survive. And hopefully Quicksilver is running around helping as well.

And let's just throw in this badass shot of Natasha getting ready to fight.

No Caption Provided

A Vision to Behold

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

Despite some promo art being released, we haven't really seen Vision before. The trailer ends with a glimpse at him. Now we have to ask, who creates him? Is it Ultron? Does he also have artificial intelligence and decide to go against his creator? We know it's highly possible his origin could be different from the comics as well. Maybe one of Wanda's hex spells triggers something inside to get him to fight Ultron? We'll have to wait and see.

If you need to see the trailer again, even though you've likely seen it a dozen time so far, you can go back and watch it HERE.

Let us know what you thought and if we missed anything here!

i understand whedon does more non serious and fun action scenes, but a lot of them come off as a little too silly like the one labeled Epic Fighting.

@g_man: i didn't know. it won't stop me from enjoying the movie, but i still hold the opinion that the action isn't my style. i think i may just prefer solo hero fights over the mess of larger battles.

thats exactly why i hated the the last half of it. I love the first half, whedon's character interactions and dialogue are better than most CBMs imo

That scene with what looked suspiciously like Wolverine claws, was that Hawkeye´s arrow-thingie?
Also, is it just me, or did Ultron under cloth on a throne in a castle in the mountains have a strong feeling of Doom?

@averywetfrog: It's comic book silly and I love it :)

I love it too most of the time. Much of the action in Avengers just didn't click with me though. It was still fun either way.

There is obviously some mind control or manipulation going on

Or it's just like the Ultimate versions and they're just naturally a-holes

Internet theory: The gem on Vision's forehead doesn't absorb rays from the sun like in the comics... It's most likely the Soul Gem.

Epic Trailer!

If this were the comic I'd be rooting for Ultron, but I'll wait and see the actual movie to decide.

Gonna be good. Really not much else to say other than it's going to be a long not quite two month wait.

From what I can gather from these promos, it looks like Hawkeye is going to be the one who dies.

I'm hoping not because I don't want Marvel referencing Jeph Loeb's atrocious Ultimates 3.

That 'Epic Fighting' screenshot is a comic panel if I've ever seen one. LOOK AT IT. I've heard people say Marvel just puts a comic book in front of a camera to make their movies, BUT HOLY CRAP THAT COMIC PANEL.

@fil123: To be fair, superman brought the fights from cornfields into the city, whereas hulk seems to be possessed by witch while they are already in the city. Superman is supposed to care about stuff like that, tony and hulk normally don't even when not being manipulated.

It'll be fun to see cap and black widow facing off in combat against the ultron bots. Different kind of fight for them. Hawkeye should do alright as long as he has the right arrows

I think the thing I'm most excited to see is how splintered the relationship between Cap and Stark will be by films end, setting up Civil War.

....and I'm hoping for at least a Wakanda easter egg.
