Hi. I’m Josh Whedon with a message for the people of Seoul, South Korea. I’m really grateful and excited to be filming in your city. We are going to mess it up a bit and inconvenience some people for a few days, and I apologize for that. I know that’s like, I live in Los Angeles, it happens to me all the time and it’s not fun. I hope that it will be worth it. We love this movie, we love your city, and having the two of them together will show the city to the world in a light that I don’t think it’s been show, certainly not in America. For us to showcase it in the manner we’re going to, and to have the exciting action as part of Avengers: Age of Ultron, is a real privilege. I apologize for how hard it is to do. In the end it’s something special. So thank you!
