The Boy who cried wolf has got nothing on Robert Downey Jr. Earlier in the year, the actor declared that a huge Marvel announcement was coming soon, and though we got a new trailer out of the deal, fans thought the rallying cry would provide far more substantial news. Yesterday, the same thing happened again. On his personal Twitter, Robert Downey Jr. declared that big Avengers news was dropping on Good Morning America today. What is the news? That the entire Avengers: Age of Ultron cast will be appearing live on a couple of ABC talk shows.
Yes, that's right. We didn't get new footage. The Captain Marvel actress wasn't revealed. And we learned nothing new about Marvel's Spider-Man plans. All this after we got a couple of puzzle pieces we were supposed to put together over night. If you are good with fonts, it was all pretty much there from the get-go. The main Avengers: Age of Ultron cast, which includes Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L. Jackson will first be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! April 13th. This will be followed by a group appearance on Good Morning America April 24, all leading up to the film's big screen debut on May 1st.
It has not been revealed if all of these cast members are scheduled to appear. Nor is it known if new cast members such as Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader and Paul Bettany, will be joining in on the fun. True, you were probably expected something more substantial in the way of a 'big Marvel announcement', but perhaps Jimmy Kimmel will pry some interesting information out of one of his guests. He did get Jason Momoa to open up about Aquaman. And on a recent Good Morning America appearance, Arnold Schwarzenegger made headlines when he revealed the startling fact that Terminator Salvation 'sucks'. What do you think? Was the anticipation worth the wait?
