There have been rumors, because of the timing of it all, that the DVD and Blu-ray release of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy would have clips or footage from Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Well, now we can confirm – and show it to you!



This was posted to the Guardians of the Galaxy Facebook page, and focuses heavily (in its brief run) on the powers of the newest characters – Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor Johnson). We get footage of the two of them in action, as well as brief snippets of the rest of the team assembling. Captain America’s new suit is on display as he ducks for cover from an explosion. And we get what looks like the new version of the 360-spin around the team.

Avengers spin

Damn. Don’t you just want to see that whole movie right now? Or, at the very least, a longer trailer than this one. Because I’ve worn out every frame of this incredible sequence, and now I’m starving for new Avengers: Age of Ultron footage.

Next we need to wonder if there are more Avengers: Age of Ultron related clips on the Guardians of the Galaxy DVD, because this is a great opportunity for Marvel to tease the semi-conclusion of the studio’s Phase Two series. (Technically, Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man will conclude Phase Two, with Captain America: Civil War kick-starting the sure-to-be-explosive Phase Three on May 6, 2016.) Even if not, it will be well worth our time to grab James Gunn’s superhero ensemble comedy to play over and over again on our home theater systems. Guardians was such a smash, Marvel Studios already greenlit a sequel, and Gunn has been hard at work preparing the screenplay for his second trip through the universes. In fact, I’m also hoping that in the commentary track to the GOTG disc, Gunn drops more than a few hints about the possible direction of his Guardians sequel, because interest in that is almost as high as in Age of Ultron.

The Guardians disc is coming on Dec. 9. Avengers: Age of Ultron will be in theaters on May 1, 2015.
