After 2012’s The Avengers almost instantly made its way to the highest grossing movie of 2012 and 3rd highest of all time (unadjusted), we’ve been waiting patiently for its follow-up, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now, Twitter basically just broke when the film’s official account asked us Marvelites to Tweet their hashtag, promising us we’ll be rewarded with a third trailer.

And, to no surprise, we did it. Now, you can complain and say comic book movies’ marketing tactics shove so many trailers, teasers, teasers for trailers, or screenshots down our throats that they actually kill any anticipation they’re trying to build. To which I would say, “Shut up and watch the damn trailer.” Because, as it turns out, there’s a whole lot we haven’t seen yet, and a whole lot we won’t see until the film drops on May 1st 2015. There’s new, epic, group fight scenes, further story details, some great and wildly unnecessary Scarlett Johansson quips, and, most importantly, a first look at The Vision himself!
