"Avengers: Age of Ultron" unveils epic first trailer

The first trailer for "Avengers: Age of Ultron" was supposed to debut during Tuesday's "Agents of SHIELD," but after a leaked copy surfaced online Wednesday Marvel responded by releasing the official version of the teaser.

Marvel fans certainly weren't complaining about getting the footage a week early. And that footage -- it's a doozy.

And, whatever's happening, it's apparently all Stark's fault.

"It's the end," he says in the trailer. "The end of the path I started us on."

But best/most terrifying of all is the villain himself -- Ultron, voiced chillingly by James Spader ("The Blacklist"), quoting Pinocchio and just sounding all-around evil. Yikes.

Marvel also unveiled a new poster for the film, out May 1, 2015:
