So what if Hydra unveiled their trailer ahead of time? Marvel came out full force today to show that they control what is and isn’t released. Between all the movie announcements and the special scene shown to a select few, Marvel kicked the day off with a bang. So their Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. preview might have seemed like second tier; but there was still a lot of great stuff.
Additionally, I even have some insights into the special scene shown at the Marvel event where Steve Rogers and Tony Stark get into a heated argument. So let’s get right to it.
Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Preview Scene and Trailer:
This opening scene with all the Avengers trying to lift Thor’s hammer was shown during San Diego Comic Con as well – even if this scene seemed a little condensed. There’s nothing much to say that hasn’t been already. This scene takes place early on in the film after a large party where the Avengers try to entertain some diplomats and government agents. Afterwards, everyone tries to lift Thor’s hammer but none get close except for Captain America who manages to budge it ever so slightly – and for a brief second the look of fear on Thor’s face is priceless.
Another funny thing to notice is Maria Hill who is wearing a red and gold dress – the color choice a nice call since she’s currently working for Stark now. Though fashion choices aside, this scene quickly devolves when Ultron appears. What follows is the same trailer that was leaked last week – or was it?
The trailer was about 90% the same. The addition of one/two scenes makes this not only unique; but also gives us a look at an old friend: Loki’s Glow Stick of Destiny. There’s still a lot of talk that this is an Infinity Stone; and I’m a believer as well. It even seemed as though this was unintentionally confirmed in Marvels teaser for Avengers: Infinity Wars earlier.
Tony Stark Steve Rogers Argument Avengers Age Of Ultron:
I’ve yet to find decent video of this; and with the risk of it being removed I’ve transcribed everything I heard when I heard it. So take a read and I’ll see you afterwards for some analysis. – Please Credit if you cite 😀
Scene: Tony and Steve are in the mountains chopping logs.
Tony: “Thor didn’t say where he was going for answers?”
Steve: Sometimes my teammates don’t tell me things. I was hoping Thor would be the exception.”
T: “Yeah, give him time. We don’t know what the Maximoff kid showed him”
S: “I don’t know what she showed you. I just know it made you do something stupid. . . Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. [They?] pulled us apart like cotton candy.”
T: *oddly silent*
S: “Is there a problem?”
T: “I don’t trust a guy without a dark side. Call me old fashion.”
S: “Well let’s just say you haven’t seen it yet”
T: “Banner and I were doing research”
S: “That would affect the team”
T: “That would end the team. Isn’t that the mission? Isn’t that the why we fight, so we can end the fight. So we get to go home.”
S: *rips log in half* “Every time someone tries to win a war before it starts, innocent people die. Every time.”
There are a couple things to note in this scene. At first I thought this might be a post credits to set up for Civil War; but I think I’ve actually placed it better. Remember the shot from the trailer of everyone sitting separately and quietly in the QuinJet? Here Tony and Steve are talking about Scarlet Witch showing Thor and Ironman something and making them do stupid things and seek answers. This could explain why Thor choked Tony in that other scene. This would also coincide with Scarlet Witch getting inside Hulk’s head and making him go rogue as well.
What did Scarlet Witch show Thor? Perhaps that his father is dead and Loki is there instead? Something that would cast Tony in a bad light? There is certainly a lot of tension in this scene – tension that will of course be explored more in Civil War itself. Though just as much as there’s hints of the future, there’s also references to the past. Capt’s reference to ‘stopping a war before it starts hurting people’ is a reference to Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Overall this seems like a foreshadowing of something worse to come, rather than the aftermath of a huge battle. Either way, we’ll find out soon. I’m just so happy more and more scenes and footage is coming out. THANKS MARVEL!
So what do you all make of this Cap vs Ironman scene? How about the Hammer scene? Sound off in the comments below and let me know!
