"I was designed to save the world. People would look to the sky, and see hope... I'll take that from them first." -- Ultron

The third trailer for "Avengers: Age of Ultron" recently was released. And it's a doozie. Unlike the previous ones, this footage includes dialogue and much more footage -- or variations of the same footage than we've seen before. (Go here or my thoughts on the previous "Age of Ultron" trailers.)
Unlike my other reviews, for trailer No. 3 I'm going to hit the high-points in bullet points. Enjoy -- and give me your thoughts in the comments section below.
0:12 -- Ultron speaks to Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver -- from a throne, no less. Obviously the throne is a sign of power, which Ultron loves, but this sequence also confirms my earlier suspicion that the mutant twins start out doing the maniacal robot's dirty work.
|The Avengers' Big Three faces off against Ultron, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.|
This won't end well.
0:26 -- Ultron unplugs himself. Not good.
0:34 -- Why are these people running? I have no doubt it's due to some havoc caused by Ultron.
|The Big Three of The Avengers -- and the Marvel Cinematic|
Universe: Captain America, Thor and Iron Man.
0:46 -- Tony Stark admits to creating Ultron. Now we know why the previous trailers have revealed so much Avengers in-fighting and why, in this trailer, Thor grabs Stark by the throat at the 1:42 mark.
0:55 -- Why is it so important for Cap to keep that car from falling?
0:58 -- Stark to Steve Rogers: "Isn't that the why we fight? So we can end the fight and go home?" This alludes to Stark and Rogers not agreeing on philosophy -- not unlike the two of them going at each other on the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier in the first film before they worked together. This footage obviously foreshadows/boils over to what goes down in "Captain America: Civil War."
|What's with Black Widow weilding some lightsaber-like fighting sticks?|
. . . No matter the answer, somebody is going to get their ass kicked.
1:00 -- Sexual tension between Bruce Banner and Black Widow. Wow. Just wow!
1:09 -- The Avengers jump into action! Best shot of the trailer. Until the very final one, that is!
1:29 -- Cap, that trusty shield of yours doesn't do much against Ultron.
1:36 -- The Hulk vs. Iron Man in his Hulkbuster armor. That battle. Will be. Epic!!
1:39 -- Is Scarlet Witch putting Black Widow under her spell? Or undoing something else?
1:46 -- Thor isn't about to stand down in the middle of battle. "Is that the best you can do?!," the God of Thunder yells to Ultron presumably. Cap's response is classic -- especially when he sees the army of Ultron drones appearing suddenly when their boss summons them: "You had to ask. ..."
1:54 -- What exactly are The Avengers protecting? Obviously it's very important. ... Sorry, a bad fanboy Captain Obvious moment. No insight there.
So I've gone from having my doubts (albeit however small) to be really pumped about seeing "Avengers: Age of Ultron." May 1 can't get here soon enough!
Can I get an amen from my fellow Avengers fans?!?
