And here's the poster:
UPDATE 10/22/2014 5:44 PM PT: It seems as though Marvel is not without a sense of humor about the leak. Disney has already requested that the trailer be taken down, and the official Marvel Twitter seems to have a response that directly addresses the source of the leak.

The original story follows below.
MovieWeb has posted the leaked trailer for Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron." The trailer matches up with descriptions of footage shown during Comic-Con International 2014, with narration by James Spader as Ultron and featuring appearances by Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.), Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and more.
The leaked version of the trailer is likely an international version, given the indication of an April release. ("Avengers: Age of Ultron" is slated for a May 1, 2015 debut in the US.) Not only does the trailer give a good look at how Spader will likely be portraying Ultron, but it also gives a glimpse at the Hulkbuster armor and many other tidbits to expect in the anticipated sequel.
The official broadcast debut of the "Age of Ultron" trailer is set for this coming Tuesday, October 28 on ABC following the latest installment of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," which airs starting at 9 p.m.
[The trailer has been removed at the request of Disney.]
"Avengers: Age of Ultron" hits theaters May 1, 2015.
