A new clip from Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” premiered after ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” on Tuesday night. The clip, which ended with the trailer that already shattered the record for most views in 24 hours, began with a look at the lighter side of Marvel’s superhero team.

Sitting around a rooftop, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) decided to see if he’d be able to pick up Thor’s hammer. Even with the aid of his Iron Man gauntlet, and War Machine (Don Cheadle), he couldn’t budget it.

One by one — save for a single Avenger who had no interest for personal reasons — they all proved, as Thor (Chris Hemsworth) put it, unworthy.

But then Ultron (James Spader) arrives. “How could you be worthy?” he posits. “You’re all puppets, tangled in strings.”

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” also stars Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and Samuel L. Jackson. Written and directed by Joss Whedon, and produced by Kevin Feige, Walt Disney Studios will release the Marvel Studios film to theaters on May 1, 2015.
