Avengers Try to Lift Thor's Hammer in First "Age of Ultron" Clip

With Hydra scuttling its plan to debut the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" teaser trailer during last night's episode of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," Marvel instead released a "Special Look" at footage screened in July at Comic-Con International. It's the much-discussed lighthearted scene in which Earth's Mightiest Heroes taking turns attempting to lift Thor's hammer from a coffee table, only to discover that none of them is "worthy."

The fun is, of course, interrupted by the arrival of Ultron, which segues into a different edit of the trailer we saw last week, with a couple of new shots.
