Thanks to io9, we have a much better description for both the Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron footage which was screened last night at the San Diego Comic-Con (and no, neither has leaked online as of yet). There are some interesting details here. For a start, it appears as if this version of Scott Lang is hired by Hank Pym to pull off a heist - seemingly from the company that the former Ant-Man ran with the villainous Darren Cross/Yellowjacket - and given the suit to help him do so. Like Guardians of the Galaxy, it also appears as if the movie will be very comedic in tone.

There are two components to this pretty zany footage: a scene in Hank Pym's lab, where the camera just pans across the space, showing off all of the weird scientific equipment and bubbling beakers and creepy anthills, before finishing up at an Ant-Man helmet. During this, Michael Douglas is convincing Scott Lang to do something. Lang protests that Hank seems nice but "I'm not a superhero." That means he's not an egomaniac, and he's not an "undisciplined moron causing more destruciton than he stops," Pym retorts. Superheroes are a "ridiculous concept. You're doing this because it's the right thing to do." "Someone already stole your balls," Pym taunts Lang. "It's just a small job, he adds.

Cut to a tiny Scott Lang in the Ant-Man suit, running away after completing the "small job" — his Ant-Man helmet is on the fritz, and he keeps losing his connection to Hank Pym, who's barking instructions. He's supposed to use the helmet to control "the transport" — which turns out to be a small flying ant. He tries to convince the flying ant to help him out, but the ant isn't listening. And then some flying lights show up, chasing him — so Scott has no choice but to jump off the building onto the flying ant, which he doesn't have a very stable grip on. He's trying to reach a rendezvous with Hank, but first he has to survive.


That all sounds great, but it's the footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron which stole the show! There are lots of small scenes which were shown which have resulted in a lot of speculation about what was going on (Captain America's shattered shield and Thor throttling Tony Stark for example), but it's the final one which we're most intrigued by. Several people on Twitter have speculated/claimed that the rubble The Avengers are lying in appears to be the same asteroid which Thanos called his home in the first movie and in Guardians of the Galaxy. Is Iron Man somehow getting a glimpse of the future? Be sure to share your thoughts and theories in the usual place!

We see the Avengers sitting around trying to untangle the "whosoever is worthy" thing, regarding who gets to hold Thor's hammer. And they all think it's a trick, or a circus sideshow. "If I lift it, do I get to rule Asgard?" Tony asks. And Thor says yes. Tony says he will be fair but firm, and maybe work out the "wench clause." Tony can't lift it — even after he puts on an Iron Man glove and gets Rhodey to help him. Soon everybody is trying to lift it — including Bruce Banner, who gets kinda upset — and only Steve Rogers even comes close. Black Widow doesn't even want to try lifting it, because "That's not a question I need answering." Tony guess it's keyed to Thor's finger prints, or some other biometric, but Thor says the answer is simpler: "You're all not worthy." Then there's a ringing sound and they're all deafened, and Ultron strides into the room, with a crude Avengers logo painted on his slightly misshapen chest. "How could you be worthy? You're all killers," Ultron says. "You want to protect the world, but you don't want to it to change. There's only one path to peace: your extinction." Then a shit ton of robots burst through the wall and attack all of the Avengers, plus Maria Hill.

Then we hear Ultron's voiceover saying he had a vision of the whole world screaming for mercy, and everybody tangled in it. And we see glimpses of some city in what looks like Africa being reduced to rubble by an attack. There's a closeup of Loki's staff, and everybody looking freaked out on the Quinjet — most of all Bruce Banner, who is holding himself and shaking with a terrified look on his face. People are running everywhere, and the debris is flying like crazy. Ultron gives a menacing look, as he surveys all the destruction. Then there are some hero moments: Captain America enters a place shooting some guns. Stuff is blowing up. Banner staggers to his knees in a snowy forest, looking sickly. Thor uses his hammer to smash a tank. Black Widow is in a medical bay, reaching for some surgical tools. We glimpse Nick Fury looking the way he did at the end of Winter Soldier. And Scarlet Witch is on a bus, approaching some people at the back of the bus with magic in one hand. Tony Stark is looking forlorn and guilty. "It's the end, the end of a path I started us on," he tells Black Widow, who says everything ends. Scarlet witch sinks to her knees shouting. And there are more shots of Scarlet Witch using her powers, just quick glimpses of her projecting magical energy.

At this point, the trailer strts playing the clasic song "I've Got No Strings." Tony, in Hulbuster armor, confronts Hulk on a city street, and there are several shots of them brawling and Tony getting the shit beat out of him. Quicksilver runs through a crowded room that seems to be standing still. Captain America is fighting someone in what looks like a knock-down brawl. And because this is Joss Whedon, there's a glimpse of girls doing ballet. Then we're back to Black Widow shooting shotguns, and more of the Hulk/Hulkbuster brawl. Thor grabs Tony Stark's throat and lifts him off the ground. Captain America is riding a motorcycle and then running. Cars are tumbling in mid air. Black Widow touches her hand to the Hulk's massive green hand, like she's calming him down. We glimpse a confrontation between Black Widow and Scarlet Witch. And then Ultron finishes the song saying, "There are no strings on me," clenching a fist as he celebrates that he's no longer a puppet. And we go a shot of Captain America's shield — shattered to fragments. We pull back, and all of the Avengers are lying prone, apparently dead, in the rubble. Tony is leaning over them, and he looks totlaly horrified and ashamed.

I'm waiting for the leaked footage.....
JoshWilding - 7/27/2014, 4:34 AM
I don't think we'll get it! Security was apparently very tight and I'm not sure Marvel used as many screen as Warner Bros. did, so that would have made it harder for people to sneakily record it. :(
MrNiklander - 7/27/2014, 4:37 AM
Tony looks over at his dead comrades!?!?Hmmm must be a Time Gem or probably a nightmare
Scorn - 7/27/2014, 4:38 AM
Wow.
kinghulk - 7/27/2014, 4:39 AM
Thor grabs Tony Stark's throat and lifts him off the ground

McNyagano - 7/27/2014, 4:39 AM
I hope it leaks, that description sounded amazing!
kinghulk - 7/27/2014, 4:39 AM
mrniklander- it could be scarlet witch messing with his head.
Maven - 7/27/2014, 4:40 AM
Apparently that final shot of Tony and the team... "Dead", is on a [frick]ing asteroid or some shit like that.
Maven - 7/27/2014, 4:40 AM
Thanos is coming.
McGee - 7/27/2014, 4:40 AM
I'm tellin' you guys...cosplay as Galactus...put a camera in that giant...headgear thing!
McGee - 7/27/2014, 4:44 AM
Guy behind you can't see and asks you to remove your hat...start talking in Spanish!

....or a bullshit language you made up! Especially if the guy is Mexican.
CherryBomb - 7/27/2014, 4:45 AM
Meh I wanna be excited for Ant Man :(
But no Janet/Old Janet ... Combined with Old Pym, combined with no Patrick Wilson just leaves me nothing to be excited for at all.

Like, nothing. :(
Lozzy - 7/27/2014, 4:47 AM
That Avengers 2 trailer description got dark as [frick] by the end.
TheMadman - 7/27/2014, 4:47 AM
This... I need to see this...
Lozzy - 7/27/2014, 4:48 AM
Also is the song the description was talking about?

CherryBomb - 7/27/2014, 4:48 AM
But wow that Avenger's footage sounds amazing!!!!

Not too thrilled with Black Widow being the one to "calm him down" I'd much rather see Betty Ross return to do that :/ but meh.
SCARLET WITCH AND QUICKSILVER THOUGH!
Eeeeek!
RebelVulcan - 7/27/2014, 4:49 AM
I'm gonna say it.... I'm more excited for AOU than BvS:DOJ. (dodges rotten tomatoes)
Enphlieuwince - 7/27/2014, 4:49 AM
It must leak.
AlexLaChiusa - 7/27/2014, 4:49 AM
@Maven

I dare say it's a recreation on this moment from the Infinity Gauntlet:

http://www.superherostuff.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/infinity-gauntlet-all-dead.jpg
AlexLaChiusa - 7/27/2014, 4:50 AM
@Lozzy That's the original but the one played during the footage was apparently a slower, creepier cover of the song.
CherryBomb - 7/27/2014, 4:52 AM
The ending is obviously a dream sequence.
Tony feels so guilty at the destruction Ultron is causing and so he had to have a guilty murderous dream..

OR it's part of a twist ending where one of the Avengers dies during the final battle...all of them are knocked out but ONE is dead and we'll only find out who until one Avenger doesn't wake up... OR it cuts to credits and we have to wait until Phase 3 to find out.
Lozzy - 7/27/2014, 4:53 AM
I have a feeling this movie is going to rival Captain America 2 in awesomeness.
AlexLaChiusa - 7/27/2014, 4:55 AM
@Lozzy I have a feeling that it's going to surpass it
NeKroziFeRPrime - 7/27/2014, 4:57 AM
i need to see that footage now!!
RebelVulcan - 7/27/2014, 4:59 AM
@Lozzy- I have a feeling it's going to beat it into the ground.
Not that I didn't love Cap 2, but this is something else.
SinisterMister - 7/27/2014, 5:02 AM
I want that leaked footage for my eyes .... (sounded better in my head)
BlackFlash - 7/27/2014, 5:04 AM
I don't think it's a dream or SW using her powers I just don't think there dead probably just knockout, It doesn't mention Vision, QS or SW in that scene so I'm thinking Ultron pretty much push the Avengers to there limit and those 3 will be the ones that save them.
mgeoff88 - 7/27/2014, 5:04 AM
The Ant-Man footage sounds good, but the TA:AOU footage sounds amazing!

Mark Ruffalo said there is a "virtual realm" in the movie. I think Tony sees a virtual simulation of what will happen, if Ultron defeats them.

I also read that the world looks like a wasteland during that sequence.
antman8o8 - 7/27/2014, 5:07 AM
I really want it to beat Avatar and Titanic for highest grossing films of all time! Could you imagine 2 CBMs being in the top 5?!
cwb77 - 7/27/2014, 5:10 AM
I get to go be an "extra" the next couple days for "Sage & Milo"! Wish me luck! My best to all. Go Blue!:)
Primordiac - 7/27/2014, 5:10 AM
Before the day is done this will leak. It can't not leak.
AstonishingArachnid - 7/27/2014, 5:14 AM
Apparently when Tony is looking guilty at the destruction he's caused there are a group of heroes, much larger than the number of Avengers knocked out in front of him.
DrLecter - 7/27/2014, 5:16 AM
That all sounds pretty great except for the shield shatter thing. I always hated it when they did that in the comics too, because it never made any sense. The things that ended up being capable of shattering it were just asinine retcons, that in the past would not have been able to do it.

In a story you have variables and invariables. if you set something as an invariable (like the shield being indestructible) you should leave it there.
mgeoff88 - 7/27/2014, 5:17 AM
@cwb77 Is "Sage & Milo" a sequel to Milo & Otis? ;P

That's awesome! Good luck, man! :)
Azazel1 - 7/27/2014, 5:17 AM
Can't be that hard to get in and record it or????
TheBrownHornet - 7/27/2014, 5:17 AM
I know BvS has them on the screen for the first time. That is wonderful. I can't wait to see it.

This Age of Ultron footage sounds really, really fantastic. Some extinction level event stuff. Can't the villain be nailed this time? Ultron seems as though he's going to be that dude. So many scenes, how are they going to put it all in? Please can't we get some leaked footage, PLEASE!
kinghulk - 7/27/2014, 5:17 AM
antman808- until last month both iron man 3 and the avengers where in the top 5 but then frozen replaced iron man 3.

also i could see the film beating titanic which sits at $2,186,772,302 after being released in cinemas twice, but i cant see it beating Avatar sadly $2,787,965,087
dennistehmennis - 7/27/2014, 5:19 AM
There is no possible way that that this will not leak. The Batman V Superman footage has tons of versions already out. this MUST leak.
Desrow - 7/27/2014, 5:23 AM
Vision gonna be the real hero here I guess, Avengers trailer sound pretty good, Ant-Man can suck a big elephant dick.
AstonishingArachnid - 7/27/2014, 5:25 AM
i would be 1000% ok with the ending to AoU being the Avengers beaten and bloody after an extensive fight with Ultron but he doesn't have a scratch. Then Thanos beams down from space and effortlessly rips Ultron in half saying "he needs this planet intact."
