Have you been excitedly anticipating the trailer for the new Avengers movie due out in May? Well, the teaser was slated for release on the 28th but it was leaked online last night, and of course Marvel had a little something to say.

Oh Marvel, you so funny. While the video was being stripped from unauthorized sites, Marvel has apparently decided to roll with the punches and release the official video on YouTube.
Aww heck yes!
What up Ultron/Pinnochio comparison. I wasn’t paying that much attention to Ultron’s1 opening dialogue, busy looking for glimpses of Loki, until I heard the song. It’s eerie and soft, but that first line jumped out at me. The lyrics:
I’ve got no strings to hold me down,
To make me fret or make me frown,
I had strings but now I’m free,
There are no strings on me
If you’ve been on a classic Disney movie binge like I have with my kids you probably already know this is the beginning lines to Pinocchio’s song, I’ve Got No Strings. There are obvious parallels between Ultron and Pinocchio. Ultron is a “living automaton” and Pinocchio is a living puppet. Ultron – who in the comic books was created by Hank Pym, portrayed by Michael Douglas in the upcoming Ant-Man, but in the movie it will be Tony Stark who created him – rebelled against his “father” and causes trouble, again like Pinocchio. I just hope that in this retelling of the classic Loki is the Blue Fairy and Ultron has to rescue Stark from the belly of the Hulk.
Speaking of Hulk, the Hulkbuster suit is fantastic. I love that it’s like an outer shell for the original Iron Man suit.
I would say the only way to improve the trailer would be moar shirtless Chris Hemsworth. Srsly.
Voiced marvelously by James Spader, but he does everything wonderfully and we should just give all of the roles in the world to him. Even the female ones. Especially the female ones. ↩
