A new, third trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron has been released and finally reveals the Vision, and it also depicts James Spader's villain being even more menacing. Chills!

Meanwhile, director and screenwriter Joss Whedon joked in a recent interview that it was a "nightmare" to make the film, which has a bigger cast. 

The new trailer was released on Wednesday, after fans answered a call on Twitter from the movie's official Twitter page to "unlock" the video by tweeting the hashtag #AvengersAssemble.

"I was designed the save the world," Ultron is heard saying in the new trailer. "People would've looked to the sky and see hope. I'll take that from them first."

"There's only one path to peace," the evil android adds. "Their extinction."

Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr., explains that he tried to create a "suit of armor" to protect the world, dubbed the "Ultron Program," but instead created something "terrible." In the Marvel comic books, Hank Pym, aka Ant-Man, is the one who created Ultron.

"We can tear them apart...from the inside," the villain adds.

Towards the end of the trailer, we get a glimpse of the Vision, another prominent android. He is portrayed by Paul Bettany, who also provides the voice of Stark's assistant, J.A.R.V.I.S.

Also, there's this kickass scene, featuring The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth).

Whedon had also helmed and written the 2012 smash hit The Avengers. The sequel reunites the Marvel superhero favorites and adds new characters such as the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).

"Shoot me in the face! It is a nightmare," Whedon joked in an interview with SFX magazine, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "I long for the simple movies like Serenity! This is the hardest juggling act I have ever, ever tried to pull off."

The film he mentions is a 2005 sci-fi film box office flop that he wrote and directed that served as a big screen sequel to his former short lived, early '00s cult series Firefly. Whedon is best known for creating another cult show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which aired around the same time, as did its spinoff, Angel.

"They're very disparate characters," he added. "The joy of the Avengers is they really don't belong in the same room. It's not like the X-Men who are all tortured by the same thing and have similar costumes. These guys are just all over the place. And so it's tough. Honestly, this is as tough as anything I've ever done, and I haven't worked this hard since I had three shows on the air."

A third and fourth film in the series, the two-part Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2, are in the works. Whedon had said in an interview with Empire magazine several months ago, "I couldn't imagine doing this again."

Whedon also said in the interview that the Hulk will be featured more in The Avengers: Age of Ultron than he was in The Avengers. The superhero is seen Hulk-smashing quite a bit in the trailer and alter ego Bruce Banner shares a tender moment with Johansson's character.

Whedon also said the sequel was filmed differently than The Avengers.

"I was running a lot of cameras, I was shooting long lenses, which I don't usually do," he told the magazine.

Production on The Avengers: Age of Ultron ended last August. The movie is set for release on May 1.
