Whereas previous trailers for "Avengers: Age of Ultron" were set to the haunting chords of the most imposing rendition of "I've Got No Strings" ever recorded, the latest promo spot for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster chose to go a different route. Instead of focusing on the high drama of the film, the new trailer showcases two things that helped 2012's "Avengers" resonate with audiences: big hits and big quips.
The Marvel movies have made it clear from the get-go that they prioritize solid one-liners alongside solid action, which is a tone they set when they cast the endlessly charismatic Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. That mix of comedy and action has been present in pretty much every Marvel film so far and it hit new heights last summer when a talking raccoon fired off as many quips as he did bullets in "Guardians of the Galaxy." With that in mind, here's a rundown of the best punches and punchlines from the latest "Avengers: Age of Ultron" trailer.
The first "Avengers" had its share of "go big or go home" battles, and from the look of things, "Age of Ultron" aims to surpass its predecessor. Here are the hits that knocked us out of our office chairs.
Captain America vs. Ultron
It's not a Joss Whedon project without some well-timed one-liners peppered throughout the script to break up the tension and drama. In a mere two-minute trailer, "Age of Ultron" provided us with enough highly quotable quips to keep us smiling until opening night.
