Today's dispatch from the department of irony comes courtesy of Marvel Studios. When the trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron prematurely appeared online, the studio went into lockdown to find the leaker's identity. According to documents found by Mashable, the outfit has traced the incident to a Google Drive account in the name of "John Gazelle," and a federal court has ordered Google to hand over their details by November 18th - presumably in order to make an example of the individual. Still, it seems that while Captain America can battle oppressive computer systems that track the activities of everyone in the world, it's happy to stick to the status quo in the real world.
