Even though Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy have yet to hit theaters, Avengers: Age of Ultron looms large as Marvel’s biggest movie yet. And while it’s not slated to hit theaters for well over a year, the House of Ideas is already priming the marketing pump for the film.
In a press release sent out today, the studio confirmed that the first look at the highly-anticipated sequel will come next month during a special called Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe, which will air on ABC. The special will premiere on Tuesday, March 18 at 8 p.m. EST. Here is the most intriguing excerpt from the press release:
Marvel's first television special documents the exciting story behind Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, featuring exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from all of the Marvel films, the Marvel One-Shots and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Viewers will walk a clear path through this amazing and nuanced universe, featuring sneak peeks at the future of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC, new footage from Marvel Studios' upcoming theatrical releases, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of The Galaxy, and a sneak peek at the upcoming Marvel's The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
With so much time before the release, it’s not sensible to expect much footage from the film. However, Marvel will likely show something to get fans talking, including perhaps a look at Ultron himself. We’ll have to wait until March 18 to know for sure.
Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015.
