AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Scene Details For The South Korean Shoot Surface
Last night we got our first official look at Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron, a film he said was “more grown up” than The Avengers, thanks to the Marvel Studios: Assembling A Universe one-hour special. While there was no footage shown considering filming has only been going on for about a month, there was some very nice concept art revealed. If you happened to miss it last night, you can catch up on all of the big reveals by clicking right here. While we’re all still revealing in the first look at Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, some new details about scenes being filmed in South Korea have surfaced. It seems the film’s titular villain will be causing a bit of havoc in Seoul.
According to The Chosun Ilbo (via CBM), 15 to 20 minutes of battle and chase sequences will be set in Seoul, South Korea. The site goes on to give some specifics, revealing “The headquarters of a Korean IT institute on a small islet on the Han River will also play a central role as villainous robot Ultron tries to acquire state-of-the-art technology.” The scene in Seoul with Ultron (James Spader) searching for some unspecified high-tech items is said to be on of the film’s core scene as Ultron lays “parts of the city to waste.” It won’t all be destruction and doom for the city though. In a more peaceful sequence, Iron Man is said to fly “over the Digital Media City in Sangam-dong and Han River Park” to “show the harmony of nature and the modern beauty of Seoul.“
We knew that the sequel would be going worldwide, but I don’t think we quite expected the scope and size of the destruction Ultron will be causing. We know there are some new faces popping up in the film, and it sounds like The Avengers are going to need each and every super available to take down the big bot. What do you think about the new scene details? Are you counting down the days to May 1, 2015 yet?
