Superheroes hang out in newly released clip from Avengers: Age of Ultron

It's perhaps unusual to release an extended clip for a movie six months before its release date. But then Avengers: Age of Ultron is no ordinary movie. 

Due for release on 24th April 2015, Joss Whedon's sequel to Avengers Assemble reunites the squabbling Marvel superheroes in a fight against villainous robot Ultron (James Spader). But there's no conflict on display in this scene, which instead reminds us of the delightfully snappy comic chemistry that existed between the characters in the first film. 

In the clip, Iron Man (Tony Stark), Captain America (Chris Evans), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and War Machine (Don Cheadle) compete to lift the hammer of Thor (Chris Hemsworth). However, their superhero shindig is interrupted by the arrival of an unwanted guest...

Exciting as the clip is, it threatens to turn the six month wait for the film into an eternity. Take a look and post your thoughts in the comments.
