I am already aware that Spider-Man is not in Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, I was watching the trailer and I noticed something strange in the following scene:

If you zoom the image in, it clearly appears to be Spider-Man along with the rest of the Avengers.


This made me wonder who this could be, if it can't be Spider-Man. Could it be Vision?

    "Is that Spiderman in Avengers: Age of Ultron?" ... "I am already aware that Spiderman is not in Avengers: Age of Ultron." ... So, what is the question?

    @stud I would say the term "Photoshopped" has become sufficiently well-known that you can use it to describe any sort of image manipulation or trickery.

    Downvoted because this is an obvious Photoshop, which is easy to disprove by looking at the trailer.

    Not a good question, but also not unclear.

No. That image has been photoshopped.

The images you posted appear to have been taken from this vine which is specifically described as

#spiderman added to the #AgeofUltron trailer

Here is the same shot from the unedited trailer.

The added character is certainly Spider-Man, and not The Vision, who appears at the end of the trailer.

    Last I tried using it, GIMP couldn't handle motion graphics or videos. It's been a long time, though.

  • Most tricks are played on screenshots rather than a video clip since its easier to edit .

  • @stud we actually found the source of the image, and it's a vine, so they appear to have edited several frames in a row.

    @phantom42 GIMP can handle motion graphics, it's possible to create gifs in GIMP just like in Photoshop. Not sure about video though.
