Next Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer to Premier January 12th
Because this is the world we live in, Marvel has announced the released date for the next Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer – January 12th during the Ohio State vs Oregon NCAA Championship game. We’ll see if they can make it to the 12th, as the first Age of Ultron trailer leaked out a little early the last time Disney tried to take advantage of brand synergy.
Excuses me if I sound a little cynical; however, this is the announcement of a trailer – not a trailer. Plus it’s airing during the NCAA Championship game. A game that normally draws in about 25 million viewers. It’s not as if, no one is going to be watching. I am excited for Marvel and most of their upcoming endeavors, but I do find their recent methodology of keeping fans in a near constant state of hype slightly ridiculous. Let’s not forgot, before they revealed their phase three film titles, they announced the announcement of just release dates. That’s a little much. But hey, fandom is often a weird indescribable thing and now Marvel can just release 1/4 of a screencap and that will set Twitter ablaze in hyperbole.
Avengers: Age of Ulron hits theaters May 1st. Hype.
