Comic-Con has come and gone from San Diego but up in Anaheim Disney is throwing it’s annual expo which shows off what the studio has coming up in the next year and fans are hearing exactly what they want to hear. In the case if Avengers: Age of Ultron, fans got to see exactly what they weren’t expecting — footage from the upcoming sequel to 2012’s Avengers.
It wasn’t any actual footage shot by Joss Whedon but Marvel president Kevin Feige helped show off a title sizzle reel according to Deadline, and the crowd ate it right up.
Feige ended the Marvel Presentation portion of today’s panel with a title sizzle reel of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Except for shots of helmets, nimages or cast members were show. Needless to say, the crowd loved it.
Whedon officially announced that the sequel, titled Age of Ultron would indeed be hitting theaters in a 2015 summer season that has all of a sudden become one of the most anticipated years for film in recent memory. In addition to Avengers: Age of Ultron, Disney will be putting out Star Wars Episode VII in an attempt to thwart off any competition from the Batman vs. Superman movie set to be released during this time as well.
Between those three titles, 2015 is shaping up to be one of the finer summer’s we’ve seen arguably since 2008 when both Marvel and DC ruled the summer with releases of Iron Man and The Dark Knight, two films that have made 2015 possible.
Still, Marvel fans are drooling over what little footage they saw at D23, which means expectations for Whedon’s followup film are even higher than some people think.
