The Avengers remains the third-most successful movie of all time, let alone the most successful superhero movie. It’s also the most successful movie, period that James Cameron wasn’t involved with. Given that fact, it’s unsurprising that even non-fans of superheroes are chomping at the bit for any look they can get at the upcoming 2015 sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Well, Marvel has confirmed that this first look will come in just a couple of weeks, courtesy of a planned behind-the-scenes special for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which ABC will air on March 18th, at 8:00-9:00 P.M. EST. The special will be called, ‘Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe.’
This special will not only show off the first footage for the monstrously-anticipated The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but will also showcase new footage for this year’s upcoming Marvel Studios blockbusters, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. It will offer sneak peeks at upcoming episodes for Marvel Cinematic Universe-set television series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as well.
On top of teasing future media developments for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the special will feature interviews and behind-the-scenes looks at both the inception and building of Marvel Studios, as well as its past movies, Marvel One-Shot shorts, and more.
Marvel Studios has continued to dominate at the Hollywood box office, and is rapidly expanding into television with the development of Agent Carter, a Captain America: The First Avenger spin-off in turn based on a Marvel One-Shot about former Cap love interest, Peggy Carter, as well as a quartet of Netflix-exclusive television shows centering on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, culminating in a crossover show where the heroes form established Marvel Comics team, The Defenders.
