Avengers face off with Ultron in new 'Age of Ultron' clip

Posted on

If it wasn’t clear enough already, this new clip The Avengers: Age of Ultron proves that one of this summer’s biggest blockbusters is actually just a family drama… with a lot of explosions.

Marvel unveiled a new scene from the film, which has been glimpsed in previous trailers. (If you don’t want to know anything about the film, turn back now. Spoilers ahead.)

Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America are standing off with Ultron and his fellow combatants, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. While Ultron is hoping to acquire some vibranium, the Avengers have shown up to stop him, and, unsurprisingly, they don’t settle things over a quick chat.

But more than that, the clip isn’t about the (admittedly awesome) fight that breaks out—it’s about the relationship between Iron Man and Ultron. There’s a clear father-son dynamic between the creator and his robotic progeny, with the two even sharing a similar sense of humor.

It’s a nice reminder that, for as bombastic as Age of Ultron will likely be, there’s way more going on underneath the shiny surface of these characters that gives all the fighting that much more meaning.
