Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer #2: Shot-by-Shot Analysis and Breakdown


The twins.


Bruce Banner hulking out. The color palette looks like Avengers Tower, which is real bad news for the rest of the city if so.


Nick Fury is back of course (sans his trademark trench coat though).


Now here’s the biggest question from the trailer. Who the heck is this?


Since rumors are still flying that Andy Serkis is playing Ulysses Klaw, and the fact that a Black Panther movie is on the horizon, many people believe that Wakanda is going to be involved in this movie somehow. With that in mind, a lot of people think this is a new Wakandan character, potentially a Dora Milaje, one of the Black Panther’s elite bodyguards.

Some fans have also pointed out that the rocks and water look similar to this shot with Thor in the first trailer. Is Thor in Wakanda?


All hands on deck at Avengers HQ. Tony Stark is examining the Ultron husk, with Captain America, Black Widow, War Machine, Hawkeye, and the new lady from the first trailer in the background. It looks like they’re all wearing the same clothes as the party scene, so maybe this takes place right before or after the Ultron attack.


Except Thor is in costume. He berates Tony Stark for “meddling in something he doesn’t understand.”


Scarlet Witch ruining Iron Man’s day. This looks like a composite of two different shots.


…as the creepy door that Iron Man gets knocked into looks like it matches the vibe of the HYDRA facility from The Winter Soldier‘s mid-credits scene. Since the first trailer showed Iron Man outside of Strucker’s castle, and Captain America kicking down a door, my guess is that the Avengers storm that HYDRA base, which kicks off a giant fight with the twins, leading to the evacuation, and subsequently the creation of Ultron and his robo-pals.


“We have no place in the world,” says someone who I’m pretty sure is Natasha Romanoff.


Before getting slammed into a gurney for what I’m guessing is some non-elective surgery.


To be fair, it might actually be Scarlet Witch, but it looks more like a young Black Widow to me. Maybe this is a flashback or a Scarlet Witch-induced vision (we definitely know those are involved)?


It’s worth noting that one of the origin stories for Black Widow in the comics is that she’s actually around 80 years old, and she only looks young due to receiving a Soviet version of Cap’s Super Soldier Serum during WWII. Some fans have pointed out that her official birth date is 1985, but she has previously stated that she used to kill people for the KGB… despite the fact that the KGB was dissolved in 1991 (at least in the real world).

If this is the case, then perhaps she’s talking to Steve Rogers when she says, “we have no place in the world,” alluding to the fact that they’re both lab-created killers.
