And once again I find myself surprisingly underwhelmed and not all the excited for it. I’ll be seeing it to be sure as I’m a fan of the characters and I know there’ll be a lot of good stuff to it as part of the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, but like the first trailer I just find it so heavy with its style and tone that it’s very hard to actually get excited about it because of that. I’ve long enjoyed the Ultron character and the reworkings of him over the year and am curious to see how both quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are handled, among other things, but this trailer is another piece that doesn’t get me excited for the film.
