Marvel Entertainment released its new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer almost a week ahead of schedule Wednesday, hours after a bootleg version leaked onto the Internet, sending social media aflutter.

Marvel played it cool the whole time, at first tweeting with mock ire at the leaked trailer:

The trailer was originally scheduled for release during Agents of Shield next Tuesday, the Verge reports. But with the secret already out, Marvel decided to just give folks what they wanted.

The official film will hit theaters in May 2015.
