It’s like the Christmas present you never knew you wanted: some saint out there has remade the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer using Legos and pure awesomeness. The result is even better than you’d – oh, wow, are you still reading this?
The video was posted this week by YouTube user JimA73 – h/t: @SuperheroFeed – and it’s a shot-for-shot remake of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer that set the internet on fire a while back. Have at thee.
Now compare to the original Age of Ultron trailer, because you know you want to watch it again.
It’s the sort of thing that makes one wish Marvel would shell out a few tens of millions more and remake the movie with Legos, no? Alas, that’s not terribly likely, so we’ll have to be content with The Lego Movie, its forthcoming sequel, and the Lego Batman movie to get our Lego fix.
We’ve still got several months to kill before Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, but when it does, it looks like it will kick off an entirely new era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Avengers sequel might include a cameo from Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, and there’s no telling how many other superheroes might show up.
Age of Ultron also promises to be the jumping off point for a schism between factions of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. The next phase of Marvel’s line of movies will see Captain America taking issue with Iron Man, probably over events that transpire during Age of Ultron. Given that the third Captain America movie is subtitled Civil War, it looks like that split will not leave the Avengers in one piece.
If you just can’t get enough Avengers: Age of Ultron and Lego, you could also spend a bit of time drooling over the Age of Ultron Lego sets, due out some time in 2015. The revelation of those sets has given us a bit of information on what we can expect from Age of Ultron, including a “Raid on the Avengers Tower” and a “Burglary at the Hydra Fortress.” It’s not much to go on, but odds are we’re not going to get too much in the way of big spoilers before Age of Ultron hits theaters in May.
