With the teaser still getting hit after hit and the official site up and running, you’d think we’d be content with all we’re getting in anticipation of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Well, you’d be wrong! So it’s a good thing that some behind the scenes footage has been included in the Guardians of the Galaxy DVD of some behind the scenes footage for the superhero sequel. Just click on the link for a snippet of what you can see, as included on the Guardians Facebook page:
After its record for most viewed trailer of 2014 being blitzed by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it’s no surprise that Avengers: Age Of Ultron is looking to gain back some of its hype. Well an Official Website can go some way to doing that. Well, I mean a full fifteen minutes of unseen footage could do the job a lot better, but hey I’m not greedy.
The site is really an offshoot of the Marvel website, so most of the links for videos, games and characters will take you out of Avengers territory and into general marvel-land. The teaser is up on the site, along with a decent enough synopsis for the film. It reads as follows:
Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, the epic follow-up to the biggest super-hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Arguably the best new material that appears on the site is the soundtrack sample that plays in the background. It’s a far-cry from the Alan Silvestri orchestral flurries of Avengers Assemble , and is a handy nod to the techno-thriller edge of the sequel.
So what do you think of the site? What would you like to see on it next?
