After announcing that the trailer would be released alongside the next episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel Studios has fallen victim to a leak that sees the trailer hitting the web far earlier than expected. We all have our suspicions as to who’s behind it, some more reasonable than others:

The movie, which is scheduled to hit the cinema 1 May 2015, stars the usual suspects from the first movie in the series, with an addition of Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch and James Spader as Ultron.
The trailer is predictable, as far as first trailers go. We get to see the villain, some hints as to the major plot points, and a large amount of action scenes, some of the better of which feature the Iron Man’s (Robert Downey Jr.) Hulkbuster armor locked in hand-to-hand combat with The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo).
In fact, there’s more than just one hint that The Hulk will go rogue during the movie, we see him looking very troubled on board the QuinJet, we see him running away, and we see him fighting Iron Man. However, in one of the close-ups (01:22, roughly), we see that The Hulk is looking affected by something; maybe he’s acting against his own will, just like Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) did last movie?
Time will tell, but what we do know is that the first trailer is here, and that it is amazing. Enjoy!
In other news, when they say “the trailer was leaked”, I’m sure what they’re actually talking about is the fact that I felt a little urine come out with excitement while watching it.
