An extended version of the trailer for the upcoming superhero movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron” shows more of the titular villain (voiced by James Spader) and has more scenes with our heroes going into battle.

The new clip shows more of Ultron threatening the Avengers and their friends, including Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division), the organization which brought the Avengers together. 

The trailer opens with Ultron’s eerie laugh.

“I know you mean well,” he says. “You want to protect the world, but you don’t want it to change. There’s only one path to peace: your extinction.”

The new clip also shows Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) flying over what are presumably enemies and attacking them, as well as Captain America jumping over a car on a highway. It also includes that same unnerving version of the song “I’ve Got No Strings” from the 1940 animated film “Pinocchio” as well as shots we’ve seen before of Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) running through a forest, the siblings Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) going to meet Ultron, and that same mysterious sequence of ballet dancers – your guess is as good as mine how they fit into the story.

In addition to Downey and Ruffalo, “Ultron” stars Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. The first film became the highest-grossing movie of 2012, according to the website Box Office Mojo. In addition to introducing the villain Ultron, the new film will include the first appearance (in the Marvel film universe) of siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Taylor-Johnson discussed the relationship between the twins in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “They’re very yin-and-yang in that twin sense,” he said. “In his power, he’s physical and she’s psychological. My character is very much on the frontline, but he can be quite emotional. You see this beautiful tenderness between them.”

“Ultron” will be released on May 1.
