Yesterday’s Disney shareholders meeting proved to contain many updates for the re-energized Star Wars franchise, including the announcement of release dates for both “Star Wars: Episode VIII” and the spinoff “Rogue One.” But, as Stitch Kingdom reports, “Star Wars” wasn’t the only franchise at the meeting to get big reveals.
New clips from “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and Pixar’s “Inside Out” were played for those in attendance. Stitch Kingdom has a rundown of the “Age of Ultron” clip which finds Hulk coming up against Hulkbuster.
The scene opens with an armored police vehicle arriving on the scene. An incredibly angry and destructive Hulk is witnessed tearing up the streets, destroying cars and spreading all-out panic. Police, heavily armed with machine guns, openly fire on the Hulk to no avail. In the distance comes Iron Man, flying at super speed to the scene. “Hold your fire,” he commands to the responding teams below. He is flanked by large metal objects that speed along through the air with him, keeping up every step of the way. We cut back to the menacing Hulk and all of a sudden, a large steel (?) surfboard-shaped object slams itself down in the pavement in front of him. Then another. And another. Before you know it, Hulk is trapped inside a giant, solid metallic “box.” At least, that is, until Hulk smashes free and then continues his rampage. And then, it assembles — piece by piece — the Hulkbuster, almost in Mark 42 fashion. “The witch is messing with your brain,” Stark tells Hulk. “You’re smarter than her, you’re Bruce Banner.” This yields an even angrier response from Hulk and it’s on. Hulkbuster vs. Hulk. The Hulkbuster usually seems to have the upper-hand, as they drag each other through the streets, tearing up the pavement. At least until Hulk ends up on the Hulkbuster’s back, impaling the shoulder with a traffic light pole. “Dick move, Banner” responds Stark as they continue to fight. Then the damaged pieces of the Hulkbuster fall off and are quickly replaced with new parts. Different parts. And now Hulkbuster is atop Hulk, Stark treating Hulk’s head as a punching bag, literally pounding Hulk’s head into the pavement over and over and over (much to the amusement of the audience). “Sleep, go to sleep” chants Stark, but spoiler alert: it doesn’t work. Then, one of the replaced parts of the Hulkbuster, the arm missing a hand, wraps itself around Hulk’s arm and sucks him in and Iron Man takes flight, toting Hulk by the arm.
The Hulk vs. Hulkbuster fight has been heavily featured in all of the trailers for the film, and now it looks like it’s been confirmed that the Scarlet Witch’s powers set the altercation into motion.
Written and directed by Joss Whedon, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” opens on May 1.
