Marvel to Show More 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Footage During ABC's 'SHIELD'
Following the earlier-than-planned release of the Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer — prompted by an online leak — Marvel Studios has revealed that it will be replacing the announced broadcast premiere of the trailer during next week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD with more footage from the movie.
The change was announced on the company's official site as Marvel thanked fans for the success of the official trailer release, which was viewed 34.3 million times globally in its first 24 hours online, breaking the previous record of 20 million views in the same period (That record was held by another Marvel Studios release, 2013’s Iron Man 3).
The site stated that footage from the movie will now air during the Oct. 28 airing of Agents of SHIELD, with even more footage debuting the following week as part of the Nov. 4 documentary Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop! (Officially, Marvel’s release promises “another taste of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron — and much more!” but it’s unclear if that means more unseen footage from another movie project or not; certainly, it’s possible that footage from Ant-Man may officially debut during the show).
Earlier this year, fans received their first glimpse at Avengers: Age of Ultron when ABC’s Marvel: Assembling A Universe documentary featured never-before-seen concept art from the movie, as well as on-set footage.
