At this point, anyone still claiming that [Marvel](channel:932254) purposefully leaked the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, which was originally set to give [Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.](series:722469) a hefty ratings boost next Tuesday, has been proven wrong by the incredible actions of the team behind-the-scenes.
A quick look at the social media accounts of their marketing team shows fast-thinking, and a grin as wide as the Grand Canyon (okay, that was just me grinning, but still) upon the full HD release of the trailer on two days ago. Seems like the people who leaked the trailer have missed out on a total of over 28 million views (and counting) thanks to the bold efforts of the team.
Again, for those of you who missed it...
So when the trailer hit, it left us wondering: what now? The leak and Marvel's prompt response may have seriously cost Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. millions of views, which spelled bad news for the shaky show. Was all hope lost?
Evidently not. Marvel released a statement today that said they plan on featuring all-new footage from [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) during a commercial break of next Tuesday's show, bringing back the value and adding a final cackle (again, probably just me) to their hit back at the people responsible for the leak.
For now, though, what we're going to see hasn't been disclosed by Marvel or anyone related to it. We could potentially see the scene that was shown at San Diego Comic-Con this year, or if we're taking Marvel's "never before seen" claim at face value, we could see something completely new.
I, for one, wouldn't mind more of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. While I may be biased in my automatic love for Wanda, Aaron Taylor-Johnson has had fans waiting with baited breath on his performance of Quicksilver, following the show-stealing performance of [X-Men: Days Of Future Past](movie:203942)'s Evan Peters. I think a look at our favorite snarky speedster (from the Marvel universe, at least) and his controversial twin would be incredible, especially because I fear that the two of them might not have nearly enough time to really shine on screen.
But Marvel has cast away my doubts many, many times (hi, [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073)), so I'm reserving my judgment for whenever we see the twins in action.
What do you want to see more of on Tuesday?
P.S. - As a bonus to you awesome people, Marvel's Agent M tweeted this earlier. Grab it before it's gone!
