The internet wins again.
After leaking online, Marvel relented and released the first official trailer for the much awaited 'Avengers' sequel.
And guess who are they blaming for the leak?

The clip, which features never-before-seen footage including scenes with the villainous Ultron (James Spader), was expected to debut during next week’s 'Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD' on US television.
The trailer features looks of goodies like the first look of Tony Stark in the Iron Man Hulkbuster armour as well as main villain Ultron and new characters Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
From the trailer, the upcoming movie seems to take on a darker tone as our heroes square off against an army of robots.
James Spader has, again, successfully managed (anyone a fan of 'The Blacklist'?) to send chills down spines with his menacing voicing of Ultron.
The trailer also raises some interesting questions like why are Hulk and Iron Man fighting? Who went rogue?
Another one will be Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. How did they escape from the lab from the post-credits of 'Captain America 2' and whose side are they on? There's a quick shot in the trailer where they are in the same room as Ultron.
With the wanton destruction, again, from superpowered beings, 'Age of Ultron' is the perfect set up for Downey Jr's Stark to initiate the Superhero Registration Act in the upcoming 'Civil War' storyline in 'Captain America 3'.
The first 'Avengers' film, directed by Joss Whedon, is the third highest-grossing film of all-time after earning a colossal US$1.5 billion in 2012.
Marvel’s superhero sequel features original cast members Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth, as well as newcomers Aaron Johnson ('Kick Ass') and Elizabeth Olsen.
'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' hits theaters 1 May 2015.
