News regarding Avengers: Age of Ultron has been fairly steady concerning casting announcements and shooting locations, but with filming having barely begun, we haven’t seen any images or footage. That will change next month when we get our first official glimpse into the upcoming sequel. Marvel has announced that ABC will air a one-hor special titled Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe on March 18 at 8 p.m. The special will go “behind the scenes of the comic-media empire,” and show official footage from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and upcoming episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The biggest surpass, however, is that the special will show a sneak peek of “an undisclosed nature” for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Like I said, filming has barely started on this movie, and the principal photography doesn’t start until next month. If you want to see new clips from Captain America, GOTG and Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., knock yourself out. As it stands, you’re probably not going to see much out of their Avengers sneak peak. What they’ll likely show is concept art or behind-the-scenes footage of production crews shooting. That’s understandable considering they’ve only just started, but don’t expect any clips of Tony Stark speaking with Ultron or anything like that.
Here’s the best-case scenario: Marvel gives us a first look at Ultron, Vision, Scarlet Witch or Quicksilver. For the first two, it will likely be concept art or models or the robots. For the latter two, maybe the costumes will be ready and we’ll get to see Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson rocking them. I think that will hold a lot of us over until they release official images from the set in the coming months. It’s nowhere near as great as seeing a trailer, but it’s a good start.
