If you’re an “Avengers” fan and you’re not watching the ABC program “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” you might want to tune in next week.

According to Marvel, a trailer for the upcoming movie “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” will air during the newest “S.H.I.E.L.D.” installment on Oct. 28. 

Marvel tweeted,

The news comes as “S.H.I.E.L.D.” has been struggling in the ratings. According to the website Collider, the episode which aired on Oct. 14 was the lowest-rated in the series’ history.

“Ultron” is the sequel to the 2012 movie “The Avengers,” which featured the first team-up of Marvel superheroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and Captain America (Chris Evans). It was mostly well-received critically, currently holding a score of 69 on the review aggregator website Metacritic, and became the highest-grossing movie of the year, according to the website Box Office Mojo.

“Ultron” stars James Spader as the titular villain. During a Comic-Con panel this summer, Spader said he found the character to be “surprising and challenging and exciting.” The movie also co-stars Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, both of “Godzilla,” as siblings Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, respectively. “Avengers” director Joss Whedon told Entertainment Weekly, “They’re on Team Ultron.” 

Meanwhile, Taylor-Johnson spoke with EW about the twins’ relationship. “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.” 

Olsen said of her character’s powers, “The reason she’s so special is because she has such a vast amount of knowledge that she’s unable to learn how to control it. No one taught her how to control it properly. So it gets the best of her. It’s not that she’s mentally insane, it’s just that she’s just overly stimulated. And she can connect to this world and parallel worlds at the same time, and parallel times.” 

“Ultron” is set to be released on May 1.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
