Watch These Little Kids Watch The Avengers 2 Trailer

It must be awesome to be a kid who loves movies in the current cinematic climate. There are literally dozens upon dozens of movie characters, superheroes and idols to fall in love with. A steady stream of new installments to the blockbuster world just keeps on providing even more of them too. But while us adults can’t react in quite the same joyously uproarious fashion as our younger counterparts to these films, we can enjoy watching them do so. That sounded a lot creepier than I intended. You know what I meant though, right? If not, just watch Kids React to Avengers: Age Of Ultron and you soon will.

See what I mean? The adorable scamps. What’s even more remarkable than the cuteness of the rabble involved in this clip is the revelation that the latest addition to the Fine Brothers’ Kids React series has now been watched over 800,000 times in 48 hours. That’s a quite a stunning total. But the fact that their videos have previously amassed 1.5 billion views online suggests that they are used to this success by now.

But what did 7-year-old Sydney, 8-year-old Emma R., 8-year-old Maxim, 9-year-old Kacey, 10-year-old Caden, 10-year-old Krischelle, 11-year-old Jaxon, 11-year-old Tyler F, 12-year-old Elle, 13-year-old Derek, and 13-year-old Dylan think of the trailer for Joss Whedon’s upcoming blockbuster sequel? Well in the end, six of the group declared that they wanted to see Avengers: Age Of Ultron when it hits cinemas; four insisted that they wouldn’t be wasting their precious time with the Marvel hit, and one was still undecided. Come on! By this point you must have made up your mind about Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, The Hulk, and Black Widow’s collective efforts.

As kids often do, the group’s unbridled enthusiasm resulted in a number of preposterously cute and amusing answers. I mean how can you not smile when Caden responded to Ultron’s declaration that he was going to "show you something beautiful" with "how is that beautiful?" Meanwhile Emma’s controversial remark that "this would be appropriate if a boy watched it" was actually backed up by the fact that every girl except two stated that they wouldn’t be asking their folks to go and see the film. Surely this is just yet more proof that Marvel simply aren’t tapping into the female demographic in the right fashion. The future may change that.

The general consensus was that James Spader’s Ultron, who will be the villain of the The Avengers Age Of Ultron, is "scary" and "creepy" while Sydney pointed out that he bares a striking resemblance to both "Transformers" and the "Terminator." The latter is a terrifically incisive comparison to make for someone who was born 23 years after Arnold Schwarzenegger made his debut as the character. Clearly she already knows what she’s talking about. At her age I still couldn't get my head around Mary Poppins.
