The first official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has been leaked online six days ahead of schedule!
As reported earlier by The Inquisitr, the full-length trailer was supposed to be revealed to the rest of the world for the first time during an upcoming episode of the hit TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on October 28.
That clearly is no longer the case, since the full trailer has already gone viral online after being leaked on Wednesday.
Chances are that you have already seen the trailer for the Avengers: Age of Ultron. Quite a few websites and social media profiles have even posted screenshots of images captured from the footage.
You have seen Ultron. You have seen each of your favorite Avengers -- as well as brief clips of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in action.
However, there is a Disney Easter egg deeply buried in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer that you may have missed.
Pay close attention to the lyrics of the creepy song playing in the background.
Did you hear what Ultron (voiced by actor James Spader) was saying before the song started?
"I'm going to show you something beautiful. Everyone screaming... for mercy. You want to protect the world, but you don't want it to change. You're all puppets... tangled in strings. Strings."After Ultron repeats the word "strings," the creepy song begins. If you paid attention to the lyrics, these are the words that you heard.
"I've got no strings/To hold me down/To make me fret/or make me frown/I had strings/But now I'm free/There are no strings on me."This is the first verse from the song "I've Got No Strings" sung by none other than Pinocchio in the 1940 Disney animated film named after the iconic puppet.
It seems to be the underlying theme of Ultron's speech in the first official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron and, quite possibly, his overall mentality in the movie.
Many fans and critics might believe that this was just another way for Disney to plug themselves in the movies of every company that they own. However, as you can tell from the actual trailer, using Pinocchio in this instance is a sign of creative genius!
What do you think? Did you love the Pinocchio plug in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer? More importantly, did you pick up on it the first time that you saw this trailer or did you need to replay it a few times to put all of the pieces together?
