You could be right. I do think explaining the Hulkbuster like that in 2 seconds would be kinda missing something. Some sort of build-up. I'm just wary of the impatience that seems to be taking hold across the board with many superhero films. But if they execute it right, Hulkbuster showing up in TA could work fine, I guess.
