A third scene showed the destruction of a Samsung building.

The featurette also showed off more Ultron concept art including Ultron in its "broken" state, and it's said the piece suggests how advanced Ultron really gets in the movie.

Comments from Joss Whedon are said to include that that whenever he thought of the Avengers, he pictured them fighting Ultron

Whedon also stated he was responsible for getting James Spader to play Ultron as that is who he wanted for the role.
