We’re approaching that point in the ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ marketing campaign where it can start to feel like we’ve already seen every big stunt and setpiece in the film before the movie’s even opened. But the new ‘Avengers’ trailer reveals yet another amazingly cool beat that’s never been seen before: Chris Evans’ Captain America loses his shield in battle with James Spader’s Ultron, so Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow snatches it while trailing the fight on a motorcycle. Then she slides under a semi-truck Fast & Furious-style and tosses it up to Cap so he can continue the battle. Awesome awesome awesome. (Marvel’s going to try to use that as a pull-quote on the poster, aren’t they?)

That Joss Whedon sure has a knack for combining these characters in cool ways. (It’s been in other trailers before this one, but the part where Thor uses his hammer to golf Cap’s shield into a bunch of Ultron ’bots is amazing too.) I can’t wait to see what else he’s got waiting for us that isn’t in this or any of the other trailers. Paul Bettany’s Vision, for example, is still almost completely a mystery waiting to be revealed. Will Cap and Iron Man have it out to set up ‘Civil War’? And will there be any cameos of non-Avenger characters? So many questions, so much time still to go before the movie opens.

Speaking of which, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ opens on May 1. That’s 24 days, 15 hours, 40 minutes away as of this writing — thanks #CountdownToUltron clock on the right rail!
