'Avengers' sequel gets some Korea advice...

Written by (Editor) on 18th February 2014

Avengers sequel goes to South Korea...Production on 'Avengers: The Age of Ultron' is underway and - once again - a major Marvel movie will be assembling a variety of wide-spread locations...

The Avengers sequel 'The Age of Ultron' may be over a year away from release, but filming has already started and is also being firmed up for a variety of further global locations.  Some sequences are already underway in South Africa - amateur footage recently showed a truck being shoved/blown out of the way by what is believed to be the Hulk (who will be CGI'd in later). Now comes the news that there are also plans to shoot some of the film's sequences in the Aosta Valley area of Italy and - significantly -  in South Korea.

Marvel Studios have said some 'key elements' will be shot in the country's capital city of Seoul, proving a boost for services and facilities in the area that was welcomed by the country's government.

"South Korea is the perfect location for a movie of this magnitude because it features cutting-edge technology, beautiful landscapes and spectacular architecture," Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios and producer of the film said in a statement. "We would especially like to thank the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST) for making it possible for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' to come to Korea."

This is not the first time a major Marvel production has gone overseas. There was a great deal of co-operation with China for Iron Man 3 and a few extra scenes were inserted into the eastern release (though not as many as previously anticipated) and a majority of the Earth-based sequences for the recent Thor: The Dark World were lensed in and around London. Much of the interior work for the new Avengers will also be shot in studios in the UK. 

The film opens in May 2015.
