While writer-director Joss Whedon may not have been available, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige brought nearly the entire cast of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, and showed a preview of what was to come next year, to a decidedly positive Hall H.

Robert Downey Jr. described the group as the largest panel of talent he’s ever been on.

And, with a cast of Downey, returning Avengers Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, along with SHIELD bosses Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, and newcomers Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, it was the largest panel I’d seen! Scarlett Johansson couldn’t make it due to her pregnancy, but sent along a video message.

Joss was convalescing following knee surgery a week earlier in England. Kevin Feige revealed that it was only after the operation that Whedon’s doctor mentioned that he shouldn’t travel. 

Slight spoiler:

Feige did show an extended teaser for Age of Ultron, which began with a decidedly comedic homey scene: the Avengers hanging out at Tony’s pad, each attempting to lift Thor’s hammer Mjolnir and failing.  Captain America seems to move it a bit, much to the surprise of Thor. Stark tries everything he can, contending it’s a technical challenge, some sort of biometric sensor keyed to Thor’s finger prints.  Thor’s answer, “It’s simple; You’re all not worthy.”

Just then, the scene changes: a robot (presumably Ultron), falling apart, enters and declares in the soothingly creepy tones of James Spader that none of them are worthy, “You are all killers.” Following which, a barrage of Stark’s Iron Man drones suddenly attack the group.
