First reported a few weeks, Marvel has today confirmed that production is headed to South Korea on ‘The Avengers’ sequel, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ In addition to South Korea, the international production schedule for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ includes locations in London, United Kingdom, where the production will be based, as well as Johannesburg, South Africa; and Aosta Valley, Italy, with additional locations to be announced.
“South Korea is the perfect location for a movie of this magnitude because it features cutting-edge technology, beautiful landscapes and spectacular architecture,” said Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios and producer of Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ “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.”
Speaking recently to Total Film (via Superhero Movie News), Elizabeth Olsen opened up about the costume she will be wearing in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Olsen join the Avengers family as the brother-sister duo of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in the Avengers’ return to the big screen from writer/director Joss Whedon.
“We’ve done some costume stuff, yeah! My favourite piece is my secrecy cloak that prevents anyone from seeing what I’m wearing. There’s a hood, and a robe – it protects the image! I don’t think Joss ever would have hired me, honestly, if he wanted me to wear those outfits; I am not a professional athlete and nor am I a model. Wearing those costumes wouldn’t be fun for anyone who wasn’t those things. He already had a different idea. It respects and involves the comic-book character but it’s different, more rooted. It’s for someone today. Well, if someone walked around wearing what she wore in the comics, people would stop and say, ‘What the hell… she thinks she’s a superhero!’”

According to Variety, Paul Bettany, best known in the Marvel world for voicing J.A.R.V.I.S., Iron Man/Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr) helpful A.I. system, will be playing the Vision in Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ In the comics, the Vision was originally a Golden Age character, yet his back-story was altered later on to be an android created by robotic villain Ultron (James Spader). Initially battling against the heroes, he becomes a hero, and even gets into a romantic relationship with Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). At this moment in time there’s no information regarding how the Vision will factor in the ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ plot. Production on the film starts next month.
