It’s the lunch hour, so why not make some time to get stoked about the biggest comic book movie of all time (to date): Avengers: Age of Ultron. The internet’s been exploding the last several days with new clips and promotion of the Marvel Studios film, which remains two very anxious weeks away from release. But perhaps your desire for superhero fun and excitement can be fed with the following clips. The stars of Avengers were very busy yesterday with red carpets and talk show appearances, while the studio is busy releasing new scenes, and new advertisements to convince fans who were already excited about this project mere minutes after 2012’s The Avengers ended, why they should be even more excited.
First up is the star-studded Hollywood premiere of Age of Ultron last night at the El Capitan Theater. This feed was streamed live last night, but you can relive the glitz and the glam in the video below (courtesy of Coming Soon):
After the world premiere of the film, the original six Avengers – Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo – made their way to Jimmy Kimmel Live, where the congenial ABC late night hosted them for the entire hour with games, special guests, trivia and a very special discussion about fan art:
On top of it all, there was even a post-credit sequence. (In start contrast to Age of Ultron itself from what we’re told):
In other news, the Avengers finally found out that Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) is alive! (Fast-forward to about three minutes):
You can watch all the Kimmel clips at Comic Book Movie.
And now, a new clip from the movie itself. Although I think we’re getting dangerously close to being able to have a working copy of the movie edited together from all the clips so far, the hits just keep on coming, as the saying goes. In this new clip, we get a face-off between Ultron and the wonder twins Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch, and the Avengers. Prepare to kneel before James Spader‘s Ultron awesomeness, people!

Now, again courtesy of Comic Book Movie, are some TV ads that will be coming soon to a commercial break near you.
And finally, for kicks, Vulture re-edited the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer to make it seem as if the film is going to be the hottest thing to hit theaters in 1995. Note the awesome use of James Horner‘s music from Aliens and the dulcet tones of Don LaFontaine.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is in theaters everywhere on May 1.
