WATCH: Iron Man fights Ultron in new ‘Avengers’ clip

ABOVE: Iron Man takes on Ultron, Black Widow helps Hulk chill out, and Thor and Tony Stark get heated in newly-released clips from Avengers: Age of Ultron

TORONTO – He had strings…but now he’s free.

And apparently, he’s none too happy with one Tony Stark.

With just a couple of weeks to go before the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel Studios has teased fans by releasing a series of clips from the highly-anticipated superhero sequel.

Not to fear, true believers: there’s nothing too spoiler-ish in these clips, the highlight of which is a super-powered showdown between Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark (aka Iron Man), and the villainous android Ultron, voiced by James Spader.

The clip also gives fans the first extended look at newcomers Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, played by Godzilla’s Elizabeth Olsen and Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson, respectively.

Another clip shows the quieter, mellower side of a character usually known for being exactly the opposite, as Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow tries to bring Mark Ruffalo’s monstrous Hulk back to his calmer, less green, human self.

And finally, a third clip brings us inside Avengers Tower in New York City for a heated discussion amongst Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, most notably Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Chris Evans’ Captain America, and Downey Jr.

Of particular interest to comic fans in this clip is the presence of Don Cheadle as Colonel James Rhodes (aka War Machine…or is it Iron Patriot now?), a central figure in the three solo Iron Man films who was not featured in the previous Avengers outing.

The new film from director Joss Whedon is a key part of Marvel’s “Cinematic Universe” that ties together multiple on-screen properties including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and last summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

The first Avengers movie – also written and directed by Whedon – was a critical and commercial smash, earning $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to open in theatres on May 1.
