Next week's ABC Marvel special gets a trailer teasing Ultron and more

03.12.2014

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. is taking a few weeks off of airing new episodes but that doesn't mean there will be a break in the Marvel action on ABC. In fact, the network will be airing a special dedicated to taking us inside the big screen antics of everyone's favorite superheroes with a one hour event called MARVEL STUDIOS: ASSEMBLING A UNIVERSE.

The special will showcase interviews and behind the scenes footage from all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films dating back to 2008's IRON MAN. While at this point we likely have seen all of this information before in the special features on the numerous Blu-rays and DVDs for each movie, the real treat with this special will be the promise of new footage and information on the upcoming CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY along with a "sneak peak" of THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

It may be too early in shooting to see any finished sequences from Joss Whedon's sequel, but I would anticipate that we will at the very least get to see some mock-ups of some of the new characters in the film. Hopefully we get to see what Ultron will look like, but I am okay with just seeing some officially released goodness.

MARVEL STUDIOS: ASSEMBLING A UNIVERSE premieres March 18th on ABC. Check out the trailer below.

Sorry, stopped watching the show after 3 episodes

...so I hope they aren't assuming we've all seen every episode when they put out Avengers 2...

I would rather see more footage of Guardians of the Galaxy then Winter Soldier at this point. Winter Soldier looks amazing in every aspect and I don't need anymore convincing with anymore new footage.

Now I understand why we in the UK are only getting Shield back after the mid season finale (which finished on a high...for me) this Friday. Seems like we're a few episodes behind now...and will catch up with the US by the time you get it back on air again. It's funny but since Arrow returned from it's mid season finale...it hasn't been as great as it was before. Shield finally picks up some steam...with a great cliff hanger...and then disappears. Sometimes...breaks are not a good thing.

Sometimes...breaks are not a good thing. Heck, I told my son Shield was back on Friday...and we had trouble remembering characters' names...other than Coulson and Skye. To my credit, I remembered Ward...but then I'm 38 this year..and my son's 11. I only got Fitz, Simmons and May's names because I couldn't resist reading Joblo's review of the Lady Sith episode.

Captain America

And I thought they were going to get people excited by making the show more of a prequel to Winter Soldier?!! That would have been much better. Ugh, these people get paid so much and don't seem to have a clue what an audience want. :/

Whaaaat??

I know a lot of people aren't enjoying Agents of Shield but for those of us who don't mind it these breaks are seriously taking the piss!!!! If a show is struggling sort it out, get people back interested in it, don't keep taking it off the air so that the people who want to watch start wanting to give up.

The special looks awesome, but air it after, not instead off. Sigh. Rant over.

I completely agree! It seems like we get one episode a month, it's really irritating

They are taking a few weeks off because its Sweeps Weeks in a few weeks. They want Agents of Shield to be part of it. ABC has already aired Agents of Shield during two different Sweeps Weeks (the November & January weeks). Now they want to air it during the April-May Sweeps Weeks. Every TV station tries to air their top shows during one of the Sweeps Weeks. ABC broke AoS up so that it can air during three of the four Sweeps Weeks.

Sadly, breaking shows up for Sweeps Weeks is becoming common

Sadly, breaking shows up for Sweeps Weeks is becoming common now. Walking Dead does it so that it can air during two Sweeps Weeks (the November & January Weeks).

The red is for the constant breaks

Can't they move Agents to Netflix? ABC is killing this show.
