It’s pretty common to get an advanced warning that a trailer is going to be released, usually in tandem with a film release or a new TV show in the same vein (any chance of either of these Ant-Man?). It’s even more common for superhero movies. But it’s a little less ordinary for us to get a trailer that announces the release of another trailer. While we were expecting Ant-Man to be the next Marvel installment to get a trailer, it seems more likely that given its summer blockbuster they’ll wait until a closer to the season to get that momentym going. So what do we have instead? It’s an Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer…trailer. It’s only 16 seconds long, although given that the video its announcing will only be a few minutes then it sort of makes sense. But it does reveal the release date of the next trailer on Januray 12th – which will definitely be a “trailer” trailer and not a trailer-trailer like this trailer-trailer…my head hurts. Don’t expect any footage, as this isn’t really a teaser, more of a spot. Check it out, courtesy of Screenrant:
So…yeah. There’s not much to really say about this since nothing is revealed apart from the January 12th release of the next trailer. But that in itself is enough to make this newsworthy. Considering all of the reveals that we got with the first trailer, it would have been reasonable enough to assume that that would have been the end of the trailers and we would have TV spots alone leading up to the big day. But the fact that we have another trailer coming means that there must be more to reveal. Will we see more of Iron Man’s hulk-buster armour? An invading army of Ultrons? Or maybe another slicing James Spader monologue. The first trailer focussed a lot on Tony Stark feeling a little down on himself for the whole Ultron thing, so hopefully we’ll see more of the other avengers and the complex emotions that they’re going through. Or instead of that we could see Vision…yeah, that would be way cooler. Definitely the best trailer-trailer of 2015 so far.
