Marvel recruits Italian soccer stars for 'Age of Ultron' promo spot

Never let it be said that Disney and Marvel Studios don't know their market. To help promote the release this week of Avengers: Age of Ultron in Italy, they enlist a quartet of soccer stars.

For the promo spot Juventus Football Club's Andrea Pirlo gets a boost from some custom Stark technology, Arturo Vidal sports an eye patch (and, apparently, moves) like Nick Fury, and Claudio Marchisio slings Captain America's shield to block Giorgio Chiellini's kick.
