Thanks to Marvel’s dedicated fan base, superhero junkies are getting their next Avengers: Age of Ultron fix early.

Originally set to premiere during Thursday’s episode of American Crime, the third trailer for the sequel debuted a day early, on Wednesday, after enough Avengers aficionados Tweeted to “unlock” the clip, reports Adweek.

This new trailer gives viewers a closer look at the movie’s titular baddie. Ultron, voiced by James Spader, is a nasty piece of self-aware artificial intelligence who turns against his creator, Tony Stark, to rob the world of hope. Yikes!

Let that be a lesson to you: even Avengers make mistakes. Luckily, Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., has a group of kick-butt friends to help him resolve this potentially lethal problem.

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo, Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters May 1.
