San Diego Comic-Con attendees on Saturday were treated with the first look at Marvel's upcoming sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel showed off a short clip to the thousands in Hall H of the highly anticipated Avengers sequel before also bringing out some of the cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The clip shows off the main cast each attempting to lift Thor's hammer Mjolnir. Tony Stark, Hawkeye and War Machine have no luck and Thor gleefully makes fun of them. However, his amusement is dashed when Captain America steps up to the plate and makes the hammer move slightly. The moment then ends with Ultron showing up and telling them, "The path to peace ... is with your extinction."
The clip continued for a short bit showing off various scenes from the upcoming film and Elizabeth Olsen can be seen quickly as the Scarlett Witch.
Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, James Spader and Paul Bettany then came out to the panel and each spoke for a short moment. Joss Whedon was absent from the panel because of some injury.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is due out May 1, 2015.
Comic-Con has been great for Marvel and fans of the comic studio, as Marvel continues to work through Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Earlier, the studio announced that one of the six mystery release dates was filled by Guardians of the Galaxy 2, despite the first film only hitting theaters next week.
