In a move that shows just how together Marvel's business is, they've turned a potentially momentum-killing trailer leak into a good feels extravaganza.
Last Tuesday Marvel promised a first look at their upcoming film, Avengers: Age of Ultron, would be attached to next week's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ratings for the show would have unquestionably gone up and, given the increased quality of the show this season, it's possible it could have recaptured some viewers. That seemed to squashed when a low-quality trailer for the film was released the very next day.
In an unexpected, and apparently brilliant response, Marvel officially released the full trailer that night. In the next 24 hours the trailer was viewed over 34 million times and was extremely well-received for the most part.
Today, in an unprecedented gesture of goodwill towards fans, Marvel has promised to deliver additional looks at the film in each of the next 2 weeks. Check out part of the official release below:
And because we believe that the best way to say thanks is to give you more, we're delivering new Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" action to your TV sets, two weeks in a row!

So it seems Marvel is going to aim for full-on fangasms with this one. While there are plenty of rumors about what we'll see/find out during the 75th Anniversary show, we now know one fact: more Age of Ultron!
