Supercars and superheroes unite in “The Avengers: Age of Ultron”, which will hit theaters in Australia, New Zealand and the U.K. on April 23 and in the U.S. and Canada on May 1. The sequel will feature some of the latest vehicles from Audi including the Audi TTS, Audi R8, and Audi A3 Cabriolet. The German automobile manufacturer recently announced their tie-in with Marvel Studios.
They even released an awesome commercial for Audi TTS which features your favorite Marvel superheroes showing off their abilities, and compared to the vehicle: Mark Ruffalo as Hulk (power), Chris Evans as Captain America and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow (agility), Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye (precision), Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man (innovation), Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver (speed), Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch (extraordinary), and Chris Hemsworth as Thor (striking).
This new Audi commercial not only gives us a sneak peek at “The Avengers: Age of Ultron”, it also reveals the teaser trailer for Marvel’s “Ant-Man” which is scheduled for release in July 2015. The movie stars Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, and Corey Stoll as Darren Cross. Check out the video below:
This isn’t the first time that Audi has teamed up with Marvel Studios. The manufacturer’s vehicles have been featured in all three “Iron Man” movies. They even created a digital comic book for “Iron Man 3” that was based on the theme of Jeff Parker’s “Choose Your Own Adventure”. According to Comics Alliance, fans can decide the ending of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts by voting what happens next to the couple.
This time, Audi will be collaborating with the great Stan Lee to create a comedic digital clip before the sequel hits the theaters on May 1. The short film will premiere on the YouTube channel of the automobile brand. “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” was filmed in London, England (where VroomVroomVroom can find you a great deal on cheap car hire), and also stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, James Spader as Ultron, Paul Bettany as Vision, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill and Josh Brolin as Thanos.
