Black Widow Calms the Hulk in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Clip

Posted on April 13, 2015 at 2:03 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


This morning, Marvel released the first Avengers: Age of Ultron clip featuring a very aggressive Hulk battling Tony Stark’s Hulkbuster armor. This afternoon, Marvel has released another Age of Ultron clip of a different sort, showing a sweeter and softer side to Mark Ruffalo’s big green guy. If it wasn’t evident from the trailers, this clip settles it: there’s something going on between Bruce Banner and Black Widow. Scarlett Johansson softly calms the angry Hulk down, resulting in a de-transformation back into Banner.

The clip is a nice preview of some compassion that I hope permeates throughout Age of Ultron, and it also provides an excellent look at the advanced CG effects used to bring Hulk to life in the follow-up. He was one of the standout characters of The Avengers, and it looks like Joss Whedon and his team have made him even better from a visual standpoint. Interactions between CG and live-action characters aren’t easy to pull off, but this clip nails it.

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in 3D on May 1st, and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Chris Hemsworth.

Here’s the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron:

Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision. Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015.
